Birth is mentioned in the IGI: his christening was on January 25, 1802, at Spring Garden Lane Presbyterian Church, in Sunderland, Durham; born of Robert Grieve and Mary Bolton.

Robert Grieve married Jane Parkin on June 1, 1825.

Recorded by the 1881 Census as being a Retired Ship Master. He must have had more than one wife -- his wife Emma was 62 years old in 1881 and his daughter Jane was 55.

His son Samuel W. Grieve was mentally deficient and was placed in the Royal Institution, a place of care for "the middle classes", according to Henry Grieve's letters to John Baillie.

Robert Grieve Jr. was "baptized" on May 1, 1981, "endowed" on July 25, 1981 and "sealed to parents" on September 1981, by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon).

There is no mention of Robert Grieve in the British census of 1851.

(2) Death: Death in about 1890 is mentioned in letters written by Henry Grieve (of Sunderland) to John Baillie of Swaziland.

(3) Birth, LDS ordinances: Electronic version of the IGI, and film Batch # C095861, source 593805 (RG4 595, 484), Book. There is still a little room for doubt as to whether this is the right Robert Grieve. Because his christening was in early 1802, whereas the 1881 Census records his age as "80", which would put his birth in 1801. The IGI mentions 2 births of "Robert Grieve" in 1801, and 3 in 1802, in other counties of England. Would a volunteer like to clear up these doubts? The information for the LDS ordinances was "extracted", not submitted by a LDS member.
