Groves Genealogy & History

Groves is an early English name derived from Old English graua (Old German graf) meaning grove of trees, referring to someone who lived near/worked in a grove. The commonality of the name means that Groves genealogy sprang up simultaneously in disperse areas, although they were found in feudal times in Essex where they held a family manor. The Groves family motto, ny dessux ny dessoux, means neither above nor beneath. American Groves family history dates to 1635 in Bermuda and 1653/1654 in Virginia, although the variant Grove is found in Virginia in 1623. Noted name-holder General Leslie Groves was manager of the Manhattan Project (first atomic bomb).
