Home Page

William Grimshaw was born in Darwen, Lancashire in 1868. His parents apparently were William Grimshaw and Martha (Hallas) Grimshaw, and his grandparents were Thomas and Martha (Grimes) Grimshaw. William emigrated to New York in 1890, where he and Elizabeth Carroll were married in 1898. The couple had two children, William F (born 1898) and Dorothy Grimshaw (born 1900). William became a naturalized U.S. citizen in New York in 1919. The family lived in New York until at least 1920, but had moved to Denver, Colorado by the 1930 U.S. Census. William completed a passport application in 1922, which includes much important information as well as a picture. He died in 1936, but the date of Elizabeth’s death has not yet been found. Neither have the locations of their gravesites.

William F Grimshaw, oldest child of William and Elizabeth, was living with his parents in New York in the 1910 and 1920 U.S. Censuses and in Denver in the 1930 Census. However, by the time of the 1940 Census, he was living with his wife Pauline (Polly) Grimshaw in Denver. William and Polly were living in El Paso, Texas by 1947, as recorded in the city directory for that year. William was apparently an engineer, and he worked for Ingersoll Rand as indicated in both the 1947 and 1953 directories. William died in 1976, and Polly in 1997. Both are buried in Restlawn Cemetery in El Paso. Two other Grimshaws who were born about the same time as William, Edward and Robert, are also buried in Restlawn Cemetery. Their connection to William Grimshaw, if any, has not yet been determined.

Lee Grimshaw and his wife Grace are also buried in El Paso, at the Fort Bliss National Cemetery see companion webpage). They are apparently not related to William Grimshaw.

William Grimshaw’s Daughter-in-Law, Pauline Grimshaw, Responded to Edwin Grimshaw’s Request for Information

In about 1979 Ed Grimshaw of Lake Charles, Louisiana, purchased a book of Grimshaw family information offered by Beatrice Bayley (see companionwebpage). In an effort to trace his family history, Ed sent inquiries to the nearly 600 Grimshaws listed in Bayley’s book. He received 81 responses to his inquiry letter. One of the responses was from William F Grimshaw’s widow. It was number 38 in Edwin’s collection. Her response included detailed information on William’s origins and family. The response is shown below.

 

Grimshaw, Mrs. William F. – El Paso, TX – (EAG 38)

Mr. E. A. Grimshaw

In reply to your letter about the Grimshaw Family Tree, addressed to my late husband, William F. Grimshaw. –

Mr. Grimshaw’s father, William F. Grimshaw (Sr) was born in Darwen, Lans, England March 18, 1868, and died in Nov. 1936. He had a brother Robert Grimshaw, but I do not know his age or anything else about him except that he was native of England. Mr. William Grimshaw Sr. came to the United States when he was around twenty-six years old and remained here the rest of his life. There was also a daughter Dorothy born July 17, 1900, died May 31, 1972. My husband, William F. Grimshaw Jr. was born in New York City Aug 1, 1898 and died in El Paso, Texas Jan. 24, 1976.

Very truly yours,

Mrs. Wm Grimshaw
