I recently acquired the Peal and Co. Cordovan Boot, which as you can see is the identical model only in Cordovan. They are definitely C&J. Made on the 240 last which is apparently a custom last for Brooks Brothers. The 240 fits almost identically to the 325, in my opinion. Very well made and comfortable out of the box. I'm sure you will enjoy them.
My understanding is that Grenson still produces shoes for Paul Stuart to Masterpiece standards. I have both the Grenson for PS and C&J for Brooks Brothers/Peal, and the PS Grenson's are at least as good as the Peal C&J's. However, I cannot confirm that this is going to be the case for the particular boots being discussed here.
Nope, no Grenson "Masterpiece" any longer. They have rebranded all of their stuff, and decreased the quality of a lot of it through outsourcing production. There are a few SF threads on this, for example:
