You don't give us your grandfather's first name, nor any dates to guide, but
there is a William Grigg, millwright, aged 48, with wife Elizabeth, 30, in
Monkton Pembrokeshire in 1851. Also present are widowed mother-in-law
Corbetta Hughes, 45, and 8 children aged from 1 to 12.
Meanwhile, in Manorbier there is a John Grigg, Millwright, aged 40, born
Manorbier, widower, with 3 children aged 2 - 10.
Do either of those fit?
Searching the Newspapers of Wales on the NLW site may give you more
information on the mill or the families.

I am researching my family name GRIGG - my 3xg.grandfather was a Mill Wright an

seen the mill,
which quite honestly "blew" my away - I was so proud that an ancestor of mine w
as responsible for this. I was wondering if there was anyone on line that know
s the history of Minnwear (hope this is the right spelling) and the building of
this mill. I also found out that 3xg.grandfather married a young lady from th
is hamlet, so I am wondering if anyone could give me more information on the la
dy and family. Unfortunately I do not know her Christian name or
Minnwear is such a pretty place I am glad I have seen it.
Any help would be much appreciated.
