+2.   Richard Greaves, bapt. 2 Jan. 1757, m. Martha Upton, 25 Nov. 1779.






Richard Greaves (2) was baptized 2 Jan. 1757 in Sutton Cum Lound, Nottinghamshire.  He married Martha Upton on 25 Nov. 1779 in Sutton Cum Lound.  All their children were baptized in Sutton Cum Lound.  In the 1841 census for Sutton, there was a Richard Greaves, 85, living with the family of Thomas and Sarah Malkin, both 45.  This Richard Greaves was still living with Thomas and Sarah Malkin in Sutton in 1851, age 94.  He was probably the one who married Martha, and it is possible that Sarah was another daughter of his.  There were a number of other Greaves families living in Sutton in 1841 who may have been close relatives of Richard.  (R‑1)

   7.  John Greaves, bapt. 3 Dec. 1791.  He may be the one in the 1841 census for Sutton, b.c. 1796.  He is probably the one, b.c. 1792, widower and farmer, who was in the 1851 and 1861 censuses for Sutton, with relatives George and Ann Taylor living with him.  In 1861, nephews John Hewson, 31, and John O. Tayor, 11, were also living with him.  There is a possibility that he was the same as John Graves, b.c. 1791, of Scrooby, Notts. (gen. 396), but that seems unlikely.

[1] From "Sutton-cum-Lound Parish. This extensive parish is divided into the two townships of Sutton and Lound, which are bounded on the west by Barnby Moor and Torworth, and on the east by the River Idle. It contains 870 inhabitants, and 4,429 acres of rich sandy land, which produces abundant crops of wheat and turnips, and is noted for its early potatos, of which large quantities are sent to Sheffield and other markets. The common land was enclosed in 1777, when 718a, 3r 26p, now called Danes Hill Farm, were allotted to the impropriator, the Duke of Portland, and 105a 22p to the vicar, in lieu of all the tithes of the parish. The Archbishop of York enjoys the manorial rights of both Sutton and Lound. The former is all copyhold (except about 2½ acres), subject to small certain fines, and the latter is mostly freehold, belonging to resident owners, of which John Walker Esq. and Henry Bagshaw Esq. are the principal. The Duke of Portland, the Rev. William Simpson, Thomas Markham, and Joseph Allison Esqs. are the principal owners of Sutton. The Archbishop had the manor of Sutton at the Domesday survey, but that of Lound was partly soc to the King's manor of Bothamsall, and partly of the fee of Roger de Busli.
Sutton stands half a mile east of the north road, and three miles north-west by north of Retford. The church, dedicated to St Bartholomew, is an ancient gothic structure, with a large chancel, a north aisle, and a handsome pinnacled tower, in which are three bells." [White's Directory of Nottinghamshire 1853]

[2] The 1841 census gave his age as 56 and hers as 55, and the 1861 census gave his age as 78 and hers as 79.
