About Thomas Griggs

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~amorrow/fg03/fg03_296.html

First found in list of inhabitants at Roxbury from 1630s, owning 12 acres of land. The name is found in Suffolk, England and he is sometimes listed as the second son of John and Martha Griggs, but that would make him part of a manorial family, which doesn't seem to be reflected in his status in America.

Arrived in Roxbury approx. 1637.
