Jasper Griffing - Essex Mass.
Posted by: Candace York (ID *****6895) Date: August 20, 2010 at 18:41:33
  of 119

Here are a couple of records I found prior to 1670 when Jasper Griffing is said to have arrived in Massachusetts. There are various spellings of his name in the records below, but they are all found in Essex County, MA where he is first found in the colonies.

I found these by searching the web for Essex County, Mass. records associated with Griffing/Griffin/Greffen/Griffyn surnames.
