Granny Guinness Record bid: GenSan woman with 160 grandkids trumps Cavite woman with 110 grandkids

It takes a world record (or, perhaps, just the idea of it) to draw out the grandmother with the most number of grandchildren. In this case, a woman with over a hundred grandkids thought she was the grandmother with the most number of apos. That is, until another woman with even more grandkids was presented to the media.

It takes a world record (or, perhaps, just the idea of it) to draw out the grandmother with the most number of grandchildren. In this case, a woman with over a hundred grandkids thought she was the grandmother with the most number of apos. That is, until another woman with even more grandkids was presented to the media.

 

At first, as ABS-CBNews.com reported, everyone thought that 87-year-old Emilia Martillano of Carmona, Cavite was the prime contender for a possible slot in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most number of grandchildren at 110. The breakdown of Martillano’s grandchildren count: 40 grandchildren, 68 great grandchildren, and two great great grandchildren.

 

The feature on Martillano was posted on ABS-CBNews.com last September 20. (Prior to the posting of the article Martillano had already been featured on TV Patrol.) Martillano got married when she was 16. Her late husband worked as a farmer, carpenter, and blacksmith to provide for their big family. They have 13 children.

 

Days after Martillano was featured on the news, other interested parties came forward to claim that they knew other women who had more grandkids.

 

In another ABS-CBNews.com report, it was revealed that 94-year-old Joacquina Bartiller of Barangay Fatima, General Santos claims to have 160 grandchildren. The breakdown of Bartiller’s grandchildren count: 43 grandchildren, 108 great-grandchildren, and nine great-great-grandchildren. Bartiller has 6 children.

 

So far, nobody has contested Bartiller’s record.

 

Other reports say Hans and Josie Schaffer of the UK claim to have the most number of grandchildren at 99. The breakdown of their grandchildren count: 56 grandchildren and 43 great-grandchildren. They have 11 children. In an article published by The Sun about the Schaffers, Guinness World Records representatives reportedly said: "There is no existing record for the living couple with the most grandchildren. But this pair may clinch it."
