Edward and Mary Ann (Heywood) Grimshaw
Married in Oldham, Lancashire and Emigrated to Vermont
(Note: Webpage in preparation)
Edward Grimshaw and Mary Ann Heywood were married at St Mary Church, Oldham, Lancashire on October 9, 1881. Oldham is located northwest of Manchester. Their son, Hugh Edward Grimshaw, was born in Manchester on October 15, 1886 (possibly 1888), and the family apparently emigrated to the U.S. in about 1888. Hugh Grimshaw married Francis Gates Stockwell in Cavendish, Vermont, on February 1, 1913, and they apparently had two children, Helen Mary (born October 3, 1914) and Norman (born March 5, 1919) Grimshaw. Because Vermont has kept excellent vital statistics documentation, most of the essential records are readily available for the family.
Edward Grimshaw’s ancestry has been documented back seven generations to James and Elizabeth (Guest) Grimshaw. James was a member one of the Prestwich Grimshaw family lines, which are described on a companionwebpage.

Patricia M. Grimshaw Obituary
Patricia Mary Grimshaw, 93, of Rutland, died Friday, July 13, 2012, at Mountain View Genesis Health Care, following a brief illness.
She was born in Rutland December 1, 1918, the daughter of Michael and Bridget (Maloney) Mulcahy.
Mrs. Grimshaw was a graduate of Mount St. Joseph Academy, class of 1937.
Before her marriage in 1946 to Norman S. Grimshaw, Pat worked as a dental assistant in Astoria, Long Island, N.Y., as well as Rutland.
Later, after raising her two children, she embarked on a new and surprising career. She was employed by the Rutland City School Department for 17 years as the school secretary at Longfellow School and as the librarian for Rutland High School. She often spoke fondly of those years and loved the children.
The most important part of her life was the love of her family. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.
Personality traits that would best describe her would include courage, dignity, gentleness, kindness and funny. Oh, she loved to laugh and the joke was most often at her expense.
Many people loved her and she will be dearly missed.
Patricia is survived by her husband of 64 years, Norman S. Grimshaw; her daughter, Arlene M. Grimshaw, and a son, H. Michael Grimshaw; and three grandchildren, Aaron Grimshaw, David Gilligan and Daniel Gilligan; a brother, John Mulcahy of Rutland; nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by three sisters, Mary Margaret Scott of Rutland, Rita Crowley of West Grove, Pa., and Theresa Lantier of Hyde Park, Long Island, N.Y.; and by a brother, Raymond M. Mulcahy of Brandon.
At Patricia’s request, there are no visiting hours.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, at Christ the King Church. Officiating will be Rev. Justin Baker, pastor.
Graveside services will be held in Evergreen Cemetery with a reception to follow at Engle Hall in the lower level of the church.
Arrangements are under the direction of Clifford Funeral Home in Rutland.
Contributions may be made to Christ the King Renovation Fund, 66 South Main St., Rutland, VT 05701.
