Origins Available: English, French


The Anglo-Saxon name Grange comes from when the family resided in a region called the Grange which were farms that belonged to the old abbeys. These farms were attended by monks who carried out their agricultural activities, and where the grain and cattle were held. The name was derived from the Middle English and Old French word grange which meant "granary" or "barn."

Grange Early Origins



The surname Grange was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Wolsingham from very ancient times, some say before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

Grange Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Grange has been recorded under many different variations, including Grange, Grainge, Greinge, Graynge and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Grange or a variant listed above:
