Born in Norway, the Gronvolds are first mentioned in 'Badcock's Historical Essay' about old St Ives. Tovey mentions his presence at the Chantrey Celebratory Supper for Adrian Stokes in 1888, as Gronvold signed the menu, and his name also appears in Whybrow's list of those who attended the Arts Club.
