St. Leger Family
« on: Thursday 21 October 04 20:46 BST (UK) »

Have been reseaching this name for the past 25 years plus so have accummulated a LARGE database of St. Legers.

Would welcome hearing from anyone else who is researching their St. Leger roots.

Hey any links with Amanda Redman!
She has links with Ireland and St Leger / St Ledger's I think in the Waterford region

Unfortunately, no links with Amanda Redman - but she has certainly raised the profile of the name.

The surname St. Leger is a lot more common than some people think!

In Wales there was a St Ledger-Grenfell I wonder if the Cornwall / Welsh Grenfell's have links to the St Ledger name?

Elizabeth ST LEDGER died on 22 May 1685 (23) Parents: Aldworth ST LEGER and Mary BARRY. She was married to Pascoe GRENFELL MP on 15 Jan 1798

Hi Jen,

thank you for the information on Grenfell/St. Leger.

Believe it or not the Grenfells are directly descended from the same Pembrokeshire family as I am.  The St. Legers are my husbands family and this is one instances of where our two families converge.  It also happens way back in medieval times, too. 

The longer is study genealogy I am begining to believe that we are all related to one another!

Well you may be related to me (although very distantly)!,
I have Swansea Glamorgan Grenfell's in my family

My Great Grandfather Campbell Charles Taylor had a sister Alice Taylor she married an Ernest Grenfell, this Grenfell line were poorer but are related to the very powerful Swansea Grenfell's (Pascoe Grenfell etc) but this link is further back in Cornwall. If you are interested I can give you more information

Regards Jen  :D

Hi Jen,

I'm afriad my connections with the Grenfell family is very loose.

Riversdale William Grenfell  (son of Pascoe Grenfell and Georgiana St. Leger) married Charlotte Adelaide Elliot.  Charlotte Elliot was the grandchild of my 5 x g grandmother's brother, Dr. George Elliot of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.

Ok not a problem. Even so it may be worth you taking a peek at this excellent Grenfell site:

Take care
