Colgrove Name Meaning
English: probably a variant of Colgrave, which appears to be a topographic name from Middle English cole ‘coal’ + grave ‘pit’, ‘grave’ (Old English col + græf), or perhaps a habitational name from a lost place so named. Probably an Americanized form of German Kohlgrube (see Colegrove).
