You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.
The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net.

Origins of surname
Researching these surnames presents a problem because the difficulty in differentiating between Graut and Grant in handwritten records has caused considerable confusion, and continues to do so. There are also many records which use the spelling Grault.
French sources have no reference to Graut, and describe Grant as of British origin.
Grant is believed to derive from grand, French for big, but no derivation has been found for Graut.
Our database has 150 records of baptisms of Graut/Grault, and a further 60 for Grant/Grante. It is highly likely that some of each belong with the other families, and it is not clear what overlap there might be between the two.
