However, the name was soon associated with the adjective "grace" as used in the nickname for a charming, pleasant person...

Hi all, my grandfather once told me my ancestors came over from Cork, Ireland during the potato famine and settled in Middlesbrough to build the booming steam ship industry.

My particular branch made it onwards to London, I haven't started my ancestral search but was recommended to start here. Hope to be of help and get some advice. Ciao Steve.?
