NOTE: NEHGR Oct. 2009; page 274: "Regarding the Grene family of Ormesby Saint Margaret, connected with the Moulton family, William Haslet Jones combined two generations into one in his account of the Grene family in the Register; [i.e.142 (1988):260-63]. He had assumed the the words niece and nephew in Richard Grene's 1561 will referred to grandchildren. This meaning was sometimes in use in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, but further research has shown that the will referred to nieces and nephews in the modern sense of the words."--Article by Myrtle Stevens Hyde
