  1. The main groupings of Grove's for the period 1500-1700 occurs in the parish of East Grinstead. There are also some records in Cowden (Kent) with a few records in the parishes of Lingfield & Limpsfield (Surrey) and Hartfield (Sussex). Some later records (1700+) are found in Horsted Keynes & Withyham (Sussex). There are none in the adjacent parishes of Ardingly, Buxted, Fletching, Maresfield, Rotherfield, West Hoathly & Worth. Records for other adjacent parishes of Edenbridge, Chiddingstone (Kent), Burstow, Godstone, Horne, & Tandridge (Surrey) still need to be checked plus Withyham (sussex) for pre 1700.
  2. None of the first generation children shown above have their parents shown in the parish records except for Richard son of John Grove. There is therefore a good possibility that there are multiple families included and are not all the children of John & Elizabeth. John & Elizabeth is the only marriage found in the period up to 1600. All second generation children have named parent or parents
