SEGRAVE Family History

This is a famous English surname. Recorded in several forms as shown below, the name has nothing whatsoever to do with the sea. It is locational from a village called Seagrave, in Leicestershire, the very centre of England. The place was first recorded as Satgrave and Setgraue in the famous Domesday Book of 1086, and derives from either the pre 7th century word "set", meaning a fold or pen for animals, or perhaps "seath", meaning a pool, and "graf", a grove, or "graef", a ditch. During the Middle Ages, when migration for the purpose of job-seeking was becoming more common, people often took their former village name as a means of identification, thus resulting in a wide dispersal of the name.
