The Term "Grease Monkey"
dates to at least 1928
“Grease Monkey” originated during the Industrial Revolution
in Great Britain when children were used to grease the large rotating axles which were used to transfer power from one centralized steam engine to all of the machines on the factory floor.
These children, covered in grease and crawling in the tight spaces in the ceilings, were equated with greasy monkeys.
