Welcome to the Grillias Family Page. We are still exploring the main branches of the family including the Grillias', the Chrysikos', the Houston's and the Griffen's. We have lots of information and pictures to sift through but always appreciate material you may have. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or information. Our latest finds indicate the long period of time that the family has been in America. Thanks to extensive research into the Griffen family by others, it looks like Edward Griffin came to America in 1635. See the included links below.
And there is a Mayflower link!
