Rev. 7 Sept. 2009, Gen. 542







George Greaves (1) was born about 1794 in Howden, Yorkshire.  He married Elizabeth Stogdale.  She was born about 1801 in Howden.  They were in the 1841 census for Bubwith, and in the 1851 and 1861 censuses for Eastrington, Yorkshire.  Their surname was spelled Graves in the 1851 census.  Her widowed mother, Isabella (“Bella”) Stogdale, was living with them in 1861.  Bella was apparently a widow as far back as 1841, since she was then without a husband in Spaldington, Bubwith, Yorkshire.  George was a farmer in 1841, a farmer and pauper in 1851, and an agricultural laborer in 1861.  All their children were born in Yorkshire.
