'Halwell Manor' in the parish of Whitchurch, Devon, is recorded as an ancient seat of the Glanville's in which family it continued for more than four hundred years.

Halwell, the ancient name of the house was spelt 'Holwell' meaning literally 'place of the holy well' and was the site of a medieval mansion probably built by the Glanvilles' and rebuilt in the 1790s to give the present building with some of the original outbuildings remaining.

The family continued ownership of Halwell until the 4th May 1790 when Julius Glanville sold the  estate to John Moore Knighton, of Grenofren.

John Taylor, later a leading figure in the British Association for Science, also lived at  Halwell Manor. He was responsible for the design of the famous Tavistock Canal to Morwellham to  provide access for the expanding local mining activity in the early 1800s.

My aim is to trace the ancestors and descendants from the Halwell period and to help others in the search of the Glanville name and welcome contact from all to achieve this. 

I would like to acknowledge the assistance and large contribution of my brother, Chris Glanville, and other family members that I have discovered on this journey with the research that has gone into the production of this site.
