GREALISH Family History

Recorded as Grealis, Gresley and Grealish, and many others as shown below, this interesting and unusual name is medieval English, but of Norman French origins. First introduced into Britain after the famous Conquest of 1066, it is a good example of that large group of European surnames that were gradually created by the habitual use of a nickname. In this case the nickname was originally given to someone with a pitted or pock- marked face, possibly to some of those few survivors of the frequent epidemics of the plague in the Middle Ages in Europe.
