Origen: Normando. The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 added many new elements to an already vibrant culture. Among these were thousands of new names. The Gravell family lived in the place named Grenneville in the barony of St. Denis de Gaste, Normandy. The family name Gravell was brought to England after the Norman Conquest, when William the Conqueror gave his friends and relatives most of the land formerly owned by Anglo-Saxon aristocrats. The Normans frequently used the name of their estate in Normandy as part of their name. The surname Gravell was established by Norman landholders in the county of Buckinghamshire.
Variantes: Greville, Grevill, Graville, Gravill, Gravell, Gravelle, Gravel, Grevil, Grevile, Gravile y otros.
