  • Notes 
    • "M. P., High Sheriff of Glamorgan, 1544. Died 10 November 1557. Married 1st, Mary Anne Herbert, daughter of Sir William Herbert of Colebrook..... Sir George was knighted 1553. He revived the privileges of the Marcher Lordship held by his ancestors, and obtained confirmation of them from the Bishop of Llandaff. Sir George was custodian of the relic of St. Teilo. He married 2nd, Barbara, daughter and heir of Sir Robert Bret of Cossington." The chief difference in the foregoing account and others is that his first wife is also mentioned as "Margaret, dau. of Sir William Herbert of Colebrook....."
