Traced back to the West Midlands of England, from the original counties of Worcestershire, Shropshire (Salop) & Staffordshire.The earliest records I have found for my direct line of Grigg's dates back to the early 1700's from the Halesowen area (originally in Shropshire but later in Worcestershire).Although there is no direct connection to my Grigg line as yet, I'm sure these Grigg families are all related, I just need to confirm it.Xara Web Designer is unlike any web design software you will have seen before; an easy template based solution that gives you total page design freedom, no HTML skills required.
They later moved to Oakham & eventually to Stamford, Lincolnshire.I'm also compiling family trees of the other lines of Grigg families from the area, namely West Bromwich, Smethwick, Harborne, Oldbury & Halesowen. These trees are in their infancy & still need a lot of work to confirm their accuracy.According to census entries, it seems that they moved from Shropshire around 1790.Samuel Platt (born c.1780) started a foundry at King's Hill, Wednesbury which grew in to a large business, employing over 50 people & operating until the 1970's, later named Samuel Platt Ltd.
This is my mother's line, from the Rutland & Lincolnshire counties.
I have traced this line back to the 1800's to Long Liddington & Essendine, Rutland.
