my grandmother was born Eleanor May Glenister, in Reading in 1893, I am interested in any Glenisters, I know of several in the Dorset area and have had contact with them, but there may be more ofyou pout there. Where does the name originate ? is anyone else related to us ?. she was the unmaried partner to ernest grover, whose family connections are with the famou builders, anyone out there ?
