Segroves Early Origins



The surname Segroves was first found in Leicestershire where early records show: Stephen de Segrave (c.1171-1241), medieval Chief Justiciar of England; Gilbert de Segrave (d. 1254), Bishop of London; Nicholas de Segrave, 1st Baron Segrave (d. 1295); and Gilbert Segrave (died 1316), Bishop of London from 1313 to 1316.

The parish of Meriden, Warwickshire was of significance to the family in early times. "This place, anciently Alspath, formed part of the possessions of the Countess Godiva in 1043, and in the 12th of Edward II. was the property of John de Segrave, who obtained for the inhabitants the grant of a weekly market and an annual fair."
