Rev. 24 Sept. 2007, Gen. 80







Robert Grave (1) was born about 1811 in Keswick, Cumberland.  He married Margaret ‑‑‑‑‑‑, probably Margaret Lancaster.  The IGI lists a marriage of a Robert Grave to Margaret Lancaster on 15 Aug. 1833 in St. Andrew, Penrith, Cumberland.  He was shown as a baker on the marriage certificate of his son William.  The baptisms listed below are from the IGI, with the first 2 being at Crosthwaite, Cumberland, and the next 2 at Keswick, Cumberland.  They were in the 1841 and 1851 censuses for Crosthwaite, Keswick, Cumberland.  He was a baker in 1841 and a pencil maker in 1851.  All their children were born in Keswick, Cumberland.

In 1851, William Grave, 42, grocer, was living next to him, with wife Sarah, 45, children John, 17, Mary, 15, Ann, 12, William, 9, and Thomas, 5, and mother Grace, widow, 74, formerly bread baker.  It seems likely that Robert and William were brothers, and both may have been sons of Simeon Grave and Grace Thwaite of genealogy 377.  (R‑1)
