In Reply to: John GRISSEL & Elizabeth ELAM of VA by Beverly (HIMES) BARGER of 9

Grissel comes into my husbands family tree with Sussanah 1790 marrying Thomas Barford 1812 her father John spelt it Grissell but only the last of 8 children had it spelt that way.The name changed spelling with his grandfather to Grisold it continued back for 6 generations with this spelling and then it changed to Griswold and continues back 9 generations with this spelling.I haven't checked to see if someone with a similar name came over with William the Conqueror but it seems quite likely.
