Graves Genealogy & History

Graves is an English surname, the patronymic form of the name Grave, from the Middle English "greyve", Old Norse "greifi", and finally Low German "greve", all meaning steward. Graves family history goes on the books with the entry of Robert Greyue in the Records of the Borough of Nottinghamshire, in 1255. Graves genealogy boasts several famous individuals, such as Missouri Representative Sam Graves, two-term Kansas Governor Bill Graves, and English poet and novelist Robert Graves. Though American actor Peter Graves (of Mission Impossible fame) was not born with that last name, it is in his maternal ancestry.
