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.
