Gratwich is a small hamlet in Kingstone civil parish, in Staffordshire, England, four miles southwest of Uttoxeter in the valley of the River Blythe. It is believed that the name Gratwich comes from the Old English ‘greot’, meaning gravel and ‘wic’ meaning “lying on”, so Gratwich means 'lying on gravel'. An alternative possibility may be “a dairy farm by the gravelly stream”. In the Domesday Book of 1086 Gratwich is recorded as Crotewiche.
