The Grimshaw family originated in Lancashire in the northwest part of England, apparently around 1000 A.D. There appear to be no records of family lines, however, for the first 200 to 250 years. It seems that the earliest recorded family was started by Walter de Grimshaw about 1250 A.D. at the Grimshaw location, about three miles southeast of central Blackburnmarker. There are several thousand Grimshaws in England, with a strong concentration still in Lancashire. Many Grimshaws apparently migrated to Manchester during and after the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution, which got its start in this part of the world. A major line of Grimshaws was also started by Edward and Dorothy (Raner) Grimshaw in Yorkshire in the early 1600s. Most of these Grimshaws were of the Quaker faith, and they contributed greatly to the out-migration of Grimshaws to many locations throughout the world.

The Family Crest encompases a Griffin, Shield and Helmet.
