Re: Grigg @ St Nicolas/Wade in Kent Posted by: Neville Grigg (ID *****5575) Date: June 21
The descendants of Phillip GRIGG (b 1727) are outlined as follows:
Phillip GRIGG - born circa 1727: Married Hester BONKEY
Phillip GRIGG - born 1742 Married Elizabeth RANDALL
John GRIGGS – born 1771 (Note: GRIGGS is not a spelling mistake) Married Sarah WOOTON
John GRIGG – born 1795 Married Susannah HOLMES
James GRIGG – born 1827 Married Jamima BROWN
Note that I also have a “fragment” family that is close, but still disconnected from the Grigg – Bonkey clan. I am reasonably certain that this group is related, but I cannot seem to connect the dots...
Edward GRIGGS Married Ann 2 Sep 1733. Children
- Richard GRIGG - Born 2 Sep 1733, St Nicholas at Wade, Thanet, Kent, England.
- Sarah GRIGGS - Born 4 May 1735, St Nicholas at Wade, Thanet, Kent, England.
- Edward GRIGGS - Born 13 Oct 1731, St Nicholas at Wade, Thanet, Kent, England.


93 Margate clan

In 1769 in Margate there is Griggs, Stephen, Shipwright (Margate Directory). Was he brother, cousin to William (0) Griggs?

Son is likely Charles Grigg, Mariner, m Mary, Father of Sarah Ann (see Entry 2165 below)

Likely the following are his children or grandchildren of Stephen Griggs through another son

1. Kentish Chronicle: Coastguard Samuel GRIGGS ca 1831 [0.654806]

Hi, I have uncovered some intriguing information about my 3xG grandfather Samuel GRIGGS, who was a commisioned boatman in the coastguard, stationed from 13 April 1831 at Newgate coastguard station, which I understand is near Margate. The following article appeared in the Times newspaper: 13 July 1832 An inquest was held on Monday last, as stated in our last paper, before Matthew Kennett Esq., on the body of Daniel Churchman, who, it was supposed, was wilfully murdered by Samuel Griggs, of the Coast Guard

96 “George Grigg walked out on his wife in September of 1846. Soon after Mary Ann Grigg became destitute and applied for poor law aid in the parish of St Martin in the Fields of London, where the family was living. Overseers took the family into the workhouse…. Five months later, when Grigg had not reappeared, guardians established that the legal settlement of the family was in Margate, Kent, and began to remove them (St Martin of the Fields, Board of Guardians, Sworn Examinations, 1840-1870. 2 March 1847 Greater London Record Office).

Might have a match here, where she married William (2) Needs research

109 Jane Griggs witnessed the baptism of one of the sons, and a daughter is called Jane, so this is the most likely name of the wife.

110 Louisa Ann Grigg of Acol was baptised 5th April 1829 at All Saints Birchington Kent to Edward a Labourer and Mary of Acol. Siblings Ann b.16th Feb 1823, John Edward 15th May 1831, Sarah Anne 12th Sep 1824, William Smith 12th Nov 1826.

Subject: [ISLE-OF-THANET] SAYER, Birchington
Jane SAYERShe was born c1829 in Birchington, (according to five sets of census records) and married John GRIGGS (b. 1824 to Patty IMPETT and Edmund GRIGGS) at some point before the 1851 census. Does anyone know who her parents were? She had a sister Called Caroline, if that helps. (Lesley, Constance Bay, Ontario).

112 There are Frederick H Mitchells born in Lambeth, Surrey (part of London, near Kennington Lane). In the 1841 Census there are two Gloucestor born Emma Mitchells aged 4. One was the daughter of George and Maria, the other of Thomas and Hannah. George and Maria had 4 other children at that time: Geoge, 12, Ann, 10, Thomas 8 and Sarah 2. Thomas and Hannah had 3 others: Palina 11, Kezie 9 and George 7 (Names as shown on the census form). From Descendents of John Grigg, by Graeme Osborne, 202 Cormorant Crt, Southern River, WA6110, Australia. I presume the family account of Thomas Legge Mitchell is more accurate, but John Grigg lived near Kennington.

118 “Zechariah set James, his sixth son, up in a mill at Birchington, Kent. This was believed to be a mill belonging to the Griggs family, who were millers there in 1666. The greatest triumph of all came when I obtained a photo of the old Birchington Mill, which everyone said I would never get. This photo can be seen on a later page. It is, in fact, a photo of a sketch, taken between 1870-80” He has 5 pages about the Griggs mil in Birchington (L.G. Grey, From Wind to Power, 2007).
