Name Meaning

English (northern): variant of Graveson, ‘son of the steward, farm bailiff, or village headman’. From the North Midlands through Yorkshire to the north-west, the source is Middle English grayve, grayve, greve, a borrowing of Old Norse greifi ‘earl, count’ (see Grave ). In Durham and Northumberland the source is Middle English greve, from Old (Northumbrian) English grǣfa with the same meaning (see Grieve ).

English: possibly a habitational name from Greysouthen (Cumbria), recorded as Graysone in 1505.
