:) Thanks, Mabel.

Not looking good, is it? Linen Drapers, Farmers and Coal Merchants ....?

Fascinated by the use of that given name though. Weird!


And a banker - son of Nutter the coal merchant, b c1815

Could it be a maiden name of mother or grandmother?  I doubt the word had the meaning we give it now.

 :( Yeppers, Mabel. Just been furthering my own research. Frankly? Were it not for the proof it provides than not All the Grays around there were of any interest? This entire thread would deserve to be nuked from outer space!  :-[

Jane; I never once thought it did suggest the kid was a screw loose  ;D

Just that I've never in my life come across it as a given name, before. Upon hearing it, last night? I checked, and found it's said to be a name used by Gypsys going by the Gray surname.

Unfortunately, I leapt to a mouth watering conclusion  ::) Big Mistake!

So, now we're left with this tenuous link to this particular board: Did Gypsy Grays use it as a given? Or, have posh Grays been mistaken for Gypsys, in research, before?

Still be nice to settle That one, once and for all. And, as such, I feel a little bit less vile for having brought my BS to this board!  ;D
