    a grave time

    Hi,

    http://www.schooltales.net/schoolmastersprogress/

    - Truly he had a grave time that first winter.

    What does 'grave time' mean? Is it 'a serious time' or 'tough time'? I could not find any entries about 'grave time' in any dictionaries so I am asking it of you.

    Thanks.

    It means 'a tough time', though I cannot find your sentence in the text you linked to.
