William Grigsby and Elizabeth were my 7x Great Grandparents. (Click
here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)
They may have married sometime before of about 1718.
William Grigsby's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.
He was a blacksmith. William died aged 67 years on 9 October 1753 and
was buried in Lamberhurst, Kent. The inscription on his headstone
implies that he was survived by 1 son and 2 daughters. He may have
been born in Marden, Kent and have been the son of Thomas Greagsbey
and Silvester Grinstead who were married on 19 October
Elizabeth's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.
