Notes for George Thornton Tyrell: [Tamara's Family Tree-2005.FBK]
"Lord of the Manors of Bruyn and Fobbing, Essex. I have used the spelling as "Tyrrell", as this is most used by the English line, whereas "Terrill" and "Terrell" are limited mostly to the American branch. Of course, there was general carelessness in spelling in the old days. The children of George and his first wife Eleanor were dobly descended from king Edward I through the twomarriages of Joan Plantagenet, dtr. of King Edward I. George being a direct descendant of the first marriage of Joan to Gilbert de Clare, Earl of Gloucester, while Eleanor was a descendant through her second marriage to Ralph De Monthermer. (Dicken). Much of the line back from here has been thoroughly researched by the English Tyrrell family. Joseph Henry Tyrrell of London is one for example who was considered to be an authroity on the line. He published "Genealogical History of the Tyrells", including an American supplement. Edwin H. Terrell of San Antonio, Texas also published a book given the English lines. Joseph H. Tyrrell says in his book, "As descendants of Edward I and Eleanor of Castile, it follows that the Tyrrells or Tirrells of Essex bucks, Berks, and of America, claim descent from the Saxon Kings of England; the Kings of France and Spain; the Dukes of Normandy; the Counts of Flanders, etc." He gives a chart showing theses descents. Alexandros J. Quayle gives a different lineage in his 1925 book, showing the line coming from George's son, Edward, and then to Robert. Line back is also different.
