He was the son of Joseph Sawle Graves-Sawle who had been created Baronet Graves-Sawle of Penrice in 1836. Graves-Sawle was MP for Bodmin from 1852 to 1857. He inherited the baronetcy on the death of his father in 1865. Sawle was also a Justice of the Peace, Special Deputy Warden of the Stannaries and Honorary Lieutenant Colonel of the Royal Cornwall and Devon Miner's Militia.
In 1846 Graves-Sawle married Rose Paynter (1818–1914), the friend and inspiration of the poet Walter Savage Landor. He wrote many poems dedicated to her. The Graves-Sawles lived in Restormel, Cornwall.
Their sons Francis, a Captain in the Coldstream Guards, and Charles who became a rear-admiral, both successively succeeded to the baronetcy. The couple had two daughters, Rose Dorothea and Constance.
