As Recorded by David J Grimshaw of New Zealand
In January 2006 David J Grimshaw posted a list of some 18 Grimshaw families of Scotland on which he has information. These families are shown on this webpage. Contact was made with David, and he provided reference to three websites that he has posted. David's Grimshaw surname was apparently adopted by his ancestor, whose name was originally Grimason and who migrated to New Zealand.
David's webpage on the Scotland Grimshaws provides considerable detail and is at the following address:

|Additional Information on Scottish Grimshaws and Grimasons|
On January 8, 2006, David J Grimshaw responded to an e-mail offering to post his additional information on these family lines on the "Grimshaw Origins" website. His response is shown below. Note the important websites that David has posted on his "Grimason" family of origin.
As yet there is no website that has this information plus the extra information that I have on some lines of these families. I note that there is no ability to post this info on your site either. I will have a look at my Yahoo account and see if I can set up a web page with what I have posted on line so far.
