Dear Karen, don't know if there is any connection. My GG Grandfather was Job Grivell who married Eliza Clifford of Calne, Wiltshire. I don't know where he came from, but am told he was born in 1825, and possibly worked in the gardens of Buckingham Palace at one stage. They came to Australia in the 'Bussorah Merchant' on 10th Nov 1848. My elderly mother remembers him as tall and swarthy, perhaps with an accent, but she can't be sure. Wendy Matthews
