Origin of last name

GRIGSBY : 1: English (Kent): habitational name from a lost or unidentified place called Gregby apparently in Lincolnshire. Although it is not certain that the surname in Kent is connected with the early bearers in Lincolnshire and Norfolk it seems plausible. A habitational name with the Scandinavian generic -by (Old Danish bȳ ‘settlement village’) while typical of the Danelaw is an impossible coinage in southeastern England.2: English: perhaps a variant of Grebby from a place so called in Scremby (Lincolnshire).
