Our branch of the family seems to have originated in the above area.

All of which comes within a radius of 2.2 miles from the centre.
We have not been able to connect Francis Greaves of Bricklehampton, who made his will on 23rd June 1707 and died on 18th September 1714 and Thomas Graves of Charlton, then Pensham, who was buried in Cropthorne 17th April 1783. Our surname GRAVES / GREAVES seems to have been interchangeable, John Graves (of the Inclosures) was called Greaves on the certificate but signed himself Graves. This occurred on several occasions.
