Legrow Early Origins



The surname Legrow was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where this distinguished family was anciently seated at Gros, a village and seigneurie in the department of Eure in the canton of Amfreville. The first on record was about 1066 when Odon leGros was accused of the murder of Gilbert, Count of Brionne, although another historian ascribes the murder to an entirely different person.
