Origins of surname

This surname presents a problem because the difficulty in differentiating between Graut and Grant in handwritten records leads to considerable confusion.

French sources have no reference to Graut, and describe Grant as of British origin.

Grant is believed to derive from grand, French for big, but no derivation has been found for Graut.
