Historical Forms

  • Grice 1771,1817 M
  • Richard de Gris 13 Goodall


, Grice 1771, 1817 M, doubtless named fromthe family of Richard de Gris 13 Goodall ; although YW dial . grice ' steps, stairs ' is possible for the p.n. , it is unlikely to be the source of the surname Gris ( as Goodall suggests ) , since the ME  form of thatword is grese ( from OFr  grez , pl . of gré ' step ' ) .
