The earliest record of Gra/i/nge in the Kirkby Malzeard parish registers is
Burial 1655/07/14 of Grange Ralfe of Bowes [in Dallowgill]
He could have been the father or grandfather of the Grainges in later records.

William Grainge of Bowes in Dallowgill was buried at Kirkby Malzeard on 2.6.1695. His will, 1695 shows that he had a brother Thomas and nephew Leonard, who had a daughter Susana. William also had nieces Jane Burrell, Susana Grainge and Ellin Grainge.

William’s brother Thomas died at Larton [Laverton] 1700 and was buried at Kirkby Malzeard on 26.3.1700. His will, made in 1696 when he was of Bowes in Dallowgill,confirmed that the nephew and nieces mentioned in William’s will were all children of Thomas. They were probably born c1660 but none were baptised at Kirkby Malzeard. His daughter Jane was the wife of John Burrell of East Witton and they had married at Kirkby Malzeard on 28.4.1685. The parish registers of East Witton do not start early enough to include John’s baptism. Jane and John lived at Larton and Thomas was probably with them when he died. In 1705 the Kirkby Malzeard parish register records John’s suicide, then of Swetton, and burial; 1705/07/09 Burrel John hanged himself Sweeton. Jane remarried at Kirkby Malzeard on 27.4.1710 to Richard Parker

In the 1680s, the children of Leonard Grainge of Dallowgill, son of Thomas, are recorded in the Kirkby Malzeard baptism registers. Leonard and his wife Jane’s marriage must have taken place before 1683 but was not at Kirkby Malzeard. The children they had baptised were:

1683/10/07 Grainge Susanna
Sponsors/Wm Burrell/Middlesmore, Jane Grainge [Leonard’s sister?], Mary Steward/both Dallagill
