Founders: Descent II

The College has no obligation to give, or tradition of giving, privileges to its Founders' kin. The College's historic collections contain no primary sources about the Balliol family, and therefore we cannot provide genealogical services to those interested in exploring their own possible descent from the founders of the College.

Please note that these genealogies are posted solely as examples; Balliol College does not hold any records about any of the Balliol descendants listed, nor is the college able to validate or verify genealogies sent to us. For a good research guide on starting your own genealogical research, see The National Archives' family history pages. For secondary scholarship on the Balliol family, see here.

The descent below was complied in 2004 by John B Scott, who was then living at 19/211 Wellington Parade South, East Melbourne, Victoria 3002, Australia; email johnbscott@hotkey.net.au. This information is published here with his permission.
