About The Griffey Clan
Please sign in to see more.
After research and more emails and letters than I care to count Griffey is Irish in origin. The  problem lays in the immigration of the O'Griffey Clan.
 In America if the family immigrated to a large Irish community th O was kept, imigrate to small  Irish community the O was dropped.

O'Griffey that immigrated to Scotland, England and Wales the O was dropped and the Griffey / Griffy  remained. Griffin and Griffith are second generation variations and are English.

O'Griffey that immigrated to mainland Europe dropped the O and changed the spelling to Griffee.

With the same research I have discovered that all Griffey / Griffy in Kentucky are related. The vast  majority of Griffey's in Kentucky immigrated from Orange Co. Virginia.

I am still working on the tie and what country we immigrated from, but I am certain it was not  mainland Europe.

This site is dedicated to all the Griffey's who descended  from Joseph and Francis (Fanny). I want to thank all who have made their  contribution, too many to mention. With out their help what is seen here would not be  possible. I beleive all information here is correct.

I have run down every lead from ship manifest and have not been able to prove the  Griffey Clan legacy of us coming from Wales. Every lead I have run into a dead end.  All I do know is that Joseph and Francis were married in Orange Co., Virginia.

Before someone corrects me, there was a Samuel Griffey that came into Kentucky at the  same time as Joseph. I can put him there using land records and census that are  available thru Ancestry.com. But he too has fizzled. I can not find nothing on him  after 1840.

My notes: I mention Crab Orchard, Missouri a lot here. Crab Orchard is Elkhorn  a small one blink town between Richmond and Excelsior Springs on Highway 10.

A Book is Being Written!!!!!!!!!

Jean Kelley of Florida is writting a book on the Griffey/Griffy Clan. Almost all information you provide will be included in the book. Any questions or concerns
