DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH GREAVES AND GRACE HARGREAVES OF RAWDON, LEEDS, ENGLAND

 

 

GENERATION 1

 

Joseph Greaves (1) was born about 1799 in Rawdon, Leeds, Yorkshire, and died about June 1882.  He married Grace Hargreaves, daughter of Thomas Hargreaves and Nanny ‑‑‑‑‑‑.  She was born 28 Dec. 1798 in Calverley, and was baptized 20 Jan. 1799 in Calverley Parish Church, Yorkshire.  It appears that all their children were born in Rawdon, Leeds.

It is very likely that Joseph was a son of Joshua Greaves and Ann Hopwood (genealogy 33), but the connection has not yet been proven.

Joseph and Grace were in the 1841 census for Rawdon, Yorshire, with his occupation as clothier, and all children listed in age order, with a Samuel Greaves, 23, clothier, at the end.  Samuel may have been at the end because he was considered grown, or it is possible that he was the Samuel who was a son of Joshua Greaves, the probable father of Joseph.  Joseph and Grace were in the 1851 census for Horsforth, Yorkshire, with him as cloth manufacturer.

One interesting thing is that living next to Joseph in the 1841 census were the families of William Greaves, 55 (b.c. 1786), and wife Mary, and John Greaves, 60 (b.c. 1781), and wife Elizabeth. Who were these men?  If they were his brothers or if John was his father, then Joshua Greaves could not have been his father.  (R‑1)
