- grange:  Originally, a grange was ‘somewhere for storing grain’, a ‘barn’. The word comes via Old French grange from medieval Latin grānica, a noun use of an unrecorded adjective *grānicus ‘of grain’, which was derived from grānum ‘grain, seed’ (source of English grain). Of its present-day meanings, ‘farm-house’ developed in the 14th century, ‘country house’ in the 16th century.
