EDWARD GRIFFIN(E) OF FLUSHING, LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK 1602-1691 AND SOME OF HIS DESCENDANTS, by Mavis Van Peenen, 1957. Compiled and published by the author. The author's branch of Griffins was established in Fishkill, Dutchess County, New York. Mavis LaClear (Warner) Van Peenen (William Warner8, Martha Griffin7, Richard6, John5, Richard4, Joshua3, Richard2, Edward1) is the 9th generation from Edward b.1602. A rough map of where some of the Griffins settled in Dutchess County is included. This richly documented manuscript (a 3-page bibliography) relies heavily on the wills of Griffins to substantiate relationships. The familiar story of Edward b.1602 is reiterated. For up to 9 generations the author lists the names for some lines of descent for Griffins, including spouses, dates of birth, death and marriage. Over 300 people are mentioned; some are given additional information. The wills of 16 Griffins are provided. Zeno T. Griffen's 1904 article from the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record is included. Reprinted was the "Signing of the "Articles of the Association" at the Inn of Jacob Griffin April 19,1775, where 502 (many Griffins) people: protested the taxation of Great Britain on the Americas, condemned the "bloody scene" in Massachusetts, supported the Continental Congress until a reconciliation with Great Britain on constitutional principles was obtained.
