Peter Greaves (1) was probably born about 1570.He was of Greenhill, parish of Norton, County Derby, yeoman.He married Elizabeth Hargrave.(R‑5)

Children - Greaves

+2.William Greaves, perhaps b.c. 1610, m. ‑‑‑‑‑‑, d.c. 31 Dec. 1662.






William Greaves (2) was of Greenhill, parish of Norton, near Sheffield, South Yorkshire (or Derbyshire?), England.He may have been born about 1610, and was baptized at Norton.He married ‑‑‑‑‑‑.His will was dated 31 Oct. 1662.He was buried 2 Jan. 1662/3 at Norton.

A note at the end of the chart of this family in Familae Minorum Gentium states: ďThe account of the family of Greaves in these four pages I received in writing from Mr. Charles Greaves of Rowlee [now spelled Rowsley], by whom it was compiled, when I called upon him at his residence at Rowlee in Woodlands parish of Hope [Derbyshire], on Sunday Oct. 16, 1836.He shewed me at the same time a Marriage Certificate of a marriage of a Greaves & an Eyre in 1654, before Randolf Ashenhurst, Esq.I do not feel quite confident respecting the Greaves of Greenhill at the head of the pedigree, the rest I have reason to think correct.Ē

There was a John Greaves of St. Clementís. St. Maryís Co., MD (genealogy 247), who applied for land certificates in 1719 and died in 1748.He may have been Williamís son, John, but more likely (based on his likely birth of 1680-1690) he was a grandson.The mention in his will of a right to an estate in England probably referred to the estate of William Greaves.It is also likely that Joshua Graves of MD (genealogy 346) was related to these families.It is also possible that the family of William Greaves and Ann Brittlebank of Hathersage, Derbyshire (genealogy 395) may be related to this family.

It is also interesting to see in this family several names that showed up in Virginia, including a Crawshaw (marrying #35), perhaps of the same family as the probable wife of Capt. Thomas Graves of VA (genealogy 169).(R‑1, R‑5)
