Hi AHay
I have Lots and lots on my Grant line, right back to the mid 1700s in the Wiltshire villages of Winterbourne Stoke and Chitterne which are only a few miles from Stonehenge.  My Grant Tree is also on the Geni website.

In essence you have elder brother Thomas and sister Thirza (Thurza) Grant from WBS
Thomas was born 1855 before his parents' marriage (1857) so was initially on record as Thomas Grant Petty, not Thomas Grant.  Thirza Grant was also conceived before their marriage.

Parents Thomas 1827 and Ann Petty 1837
Grand Parents  James 1802 and Elizabeth Gilbert 1805
Great Grand Parents John Shepherd Grant 1779 and Elizabeth Wansborough 1789
G G Grand Parents George 1757 and Rachel Yeates 1759
G G G Parent almost certainly George but not 100% positive proof

 If you send me a personal message with an e-mail address, I can send you a family tree including supporting text on their past and present with many illustrations and photos of descendants.

[1] In your intro you wrote;
"Your great great grandfather was a child of Mary Elizabeth England."
In my book that should have been Victoria May England

[2] Where in the world are you?
