Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Grossone were recorded, including Gresham, Gressam and others.

In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships.
