Main – Section A – Row 8 – 1 – Grey


Erected In Memory of MARGARET GREY, daughter of JOHN and MARGARET GREY, who died at Old Heaton, Feb. 16th 1815?, aged 5 years.  Also MARGARET GREY, who died May 21st ? 1837, aged 18 years and also the above JOHN GREY who died Aug. 16th 1850, aged 70 years. Some parts of the headstone are difficult to read.



This information was given to us by Claire Grey from London

I have found  him and his family on the 1841 census for Old Heaton: John Grey farmer, aged 60, Margaret Grey 50, John Grey 25 William 15 Mary 15 and James 12. This seems to be the correct family since he is called “Farmer” and everyone else is described as an “Ag lab”.  and the names  and ages seem to fit.

His brother William emigrated to New Zealand and I am now in contact with his descendants there.  I have a copy of a painting of his sister.

This is her web site with lots more information.
