Settlor, grantor, trustor and trustmaker are different names for the person or entity that created or established the trust. For example, if a parent created a trust for a child with a disability, then the parent would be named the settlor, grantor, trustmaker, or trustor of the trust, depending on the drafting attorney’s own convention of use; however, there is no difference in treatment if a trust document uses a different name.
