p. 172 171.  THOMAS CORBIN, of "Hall End," Warwick Co., England; b. May 24, 1594, at "Hall End"; d. June, 1637, at "Hall End"; m. 1620, Winifred Grosvenor, dau. of Gawin Grosvenor, of "Sutton Colfield," Warwick Co.Cheshire, England.  (The Grosvenors are descended from Sir Gilbert Grosvenor, who came into England with the Conqueror; the present representative of the family in England is Sir Hugh Richard Arthur Grosvenor, Duke of Westminister).

183.  HENRY CORBIN, the third son of Thomas and Winifred (Grosvenor) Corbin, of "Hall End," was the progenitor of the Corbins in Virginia...

  There is nothing whatsoever proving any Grosvenor accompanied William the Conqueror in 1066.  Please see this page for the very short proven list of his companions.  Note that the name, "Gilbert Grosvenor," is much too modern to have even been in use in the 11th Century and the title "Sir" did not come ino usage in the English language until the late 13th Century.  What is possibly true is that the Grosvenors were descendants of William the Conquerer.  It is correct that Hugh Richard Arthur Grosvenor (1879-1963) was 2nd Duke of Westminster at the time this book was written, but it's "Westminster," not "Westminister."
