    This ancient name has two possible origins, the first of which is from an Anglo-Saxon, Old English nickname for someone with grey hair or a grey beard, derived from the Old English pre 7th Century word "graeg", grey. The bearers of the name in Scotland and Ireland were originally the Gaelic "riabhach", meaning "brindled or grey", translated to "Grey" or "Gray". The second origin of the modern name is from the place called "Graye" in Calvados, Normandy, so called from the Old Gallo-Roman personal name "Gratus" meaning "Welcome" or "Pleasing", with the suffix "acum" meaning settlement or village. A notable bearer of the name was Lady Jane Grey (1537 - 1554), who reigned as queen of England from July 9th to the 19th, 1553, before being imprisoned and executed the following year. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Anschitill Grai, which was dated 1086, in the "Domesday Book", Oxfordshire, during the reign of King William 1, known as "The Conqueror", 1066 - 1087. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

  • Notes 
    • "The Lady Elizabeth, their mother, died 29 December A. D. 1559, and is buried at St. Faith's under St. Paul's; the probate of her last will bearing date January 5th, 1559
      " Here is buried Elizabeth
      Of Honour worthy Dame,
      Her husband Ernst Lord Shaudoys was,
      Her son hath now like name.
      Her father was of Wilton Lord,
      A Grey of puissant fame,
      Her brother left us behind,
      Now Lord is of the same.
      Her virtuous life yet still doth live,
      Her honour shall remaine
      Her corps tho' it is be grown to dust,
      Her soul the heavens contain."
