Because Samuel Greniffe, in 1703, left personalty to Sarah Rockhold, James Crouch, and Maurice Baker, it has been inferred that Sarah, wife of Robert Rockhould, was a Greniffe.

However, Sarah wife of Robert would have been nearly 90 years old at that time and it would have been unusual for her to inherit at that age. More likely this was another Sarah Rockhold, possibly a grandaughter, daughter-in-law, or a descendent of Thomas brother of Robert.
