Griffin Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Griffin Family History


Griffin Family History


The majority of descendants who bear this name descend not only from Welsh setlers who arrived into the country in the seventeenth century but also from the native Gaelic O'Griobtha Sept. Ballygriffin in County Kerry was the home of one of the Septs while others were located in Counties Limerick and Clare.

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
