DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM GREVES AND MARY MOW

OF KINGS NORTON, BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

William Greves (1) was baptized 23 Jan. or 26 Oct. 1673.  He probably married Mary Mow at Alvechurch, probably on 13 May 1702 at Kings Norton, near Birmingham, England.

There were 2 people named William Greves baptized at Kings Norton in 1673.  Since it has not yet been proven which is correct, it is presently not possible to trace further back.

The other children listed below (siblings of William) are probable but not proved, and there may have been others.

The map on the next page shows most of the places mentioned in this genealogy.  They are all just a few miles south of Birmingham.  (R‑1)
