Grisdale's of Whitehaven
« on: Thursday 14 October 21 12:56 BST (UK) »
My name is Paul Grisdale. Researching the Grisdale family originally from Matterdale but eventually settled in Whitehaven.

My 4th GG was Matthew Grisdale (1752 - 1838). He seemed to do fairly well as a corn merchant. However, one of his son's Thomas Grisdale did not do so well and I believe he became bankrupt and fled to Dublin before moving to Liverpool.

Are there any members who are related to the Grisdale family?

Best wishes
Paul
