THE GREWCOCKS OF BARWELL
My FRISBYs were related to the GREWCOCKS by marriage: my great-grandfather, Henry FRISBY, married Mary-Ann GREWCOCK on October 13, 1866. Mary-Ann died February 12, 1904 at the age of 66.
- Mary-Ann had two brother, Joseph and Whetstone. Whetstone lived at Claybrooke Hall and had three daughters, Mable, Marion and Janet, who never married. To see the photo of Claybrooke Hall, click here.
- Mary-Ann's other brother was named WHETSTONE, which is a name that became one of both my grandfather's and my father's.
- A number of Grewcocks are listed in "White's History, Gazetteer and Directory of the Counties of Leicester and Rutland (1877)," as the GREWCOCKS were a prominent Barwell family.
- The Grewcocks that are listed in White's as Barwell residents are CHARLES, GEORGE and THOMAS (market gardeners and WILLIAM (butcher and farmer.)
