Reynolds Family Tree book (44MB pdf file) "Christopher Reynolds and his Descendants"

The name Reynolds, also spelled in America as Runnels, Runals, etc., is of Norman origin, and comes from the family of Renard. The family is of great antiquity, claiming descent from Reynolds - son of Grethferth - The Dane - King of Northumberland. Grethferth and his two sons were driven from England circa 944 and took shelter in Normandy. His descendant Fitzreynolds - meaning son of - returned to England with WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR.


More than 30 years has been spent by the author on compiling this genealogical record. Research was made in U. S. Census Returns, Family Bibles, other published work, etc. The thanks of the author is extended to the many individual members of the family that assisted in rounding up data for the book. Indexing is by paragraph rather than by page.
