GROVE Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Grove, Groves, Grover, and the unusual medieval survival of Le Grove, this is an English surname of pre 9th century origins. Deriving from the Olde German word 'graf', the surname is topographical or occupational for a dweller or worker by a grove or wood. Topographical surnames of this type, were among the earliest created, since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages. The surname is 12th Century and early recordings include Osbert de la Grava in the 1197 rolls called the 'Feet of Fines', for the county of Buckinghamshire, John de la Grove in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire in 1275, and William Gover, in the 1332 Subsidy Rolls for the county of Sussex in 1332...
