Do you know the year that Henry and or Mary were born? What city and county were they born in? Do you know the year they married and the location? Would you have their year of death and the location?

Birth record, marriage record and or death record can list the parents.

I'm very doubtful about the name. What Grinrods there are are all Lancashire not Yorkshire. There is one birth registered before 1855 and no marriages for a Henry.

The Elizabeth in Saddleworth in 1852 is registered as Elizabeth Grindrod. Hanry Grindrod married Mary Andrew in Saddleworth 2nd quarter of 1851. Surely that must be them.

According to the 1851 census.That Henry appears to have been born c. 1826 on Bolton Lancashire. There are a Henry and Sarah in Bolton born c. 1803 and 1806.

Then ther is Mary Andrew born about 1828 Roughton Yorkshire. Her parents are Thomas and Sally born c. 1804 and 1807.

Over to you.

And after all that I find that the WT source gives Grindrod!!!
Martin your AWESOME, I really appreciate your help. Apparently, my family didn't know as much as they thought about my great grandmother's family.
I'm fairly sure that Mary is correct, but Henry is a problem.

In 1841 there are a lot of Grindrods in Saddleworth, all born in Yorkshire, but no Henry.

But 1851 shows a different picture with some from 1841 now listed as born Lancashire. And Henry is now there born in Bolton.

I think Henry and Sarah is wrong because their son Henry was born in 1830 (1841 census).

The only solution is to find Henry about 1826 in Bolton.
