Griggs Genealogy & History

Griggs comes from the name Gregory, a Greek name from the verb gregorein, to be awake or watchful, which was associated with the Latin grex, gregis, meaning a flock or herd, and thus a shepherd. The idea of the good shepherd made this a popular name during the Crusades, as warriors and their relatives took new names in honor of their journey. Griggs family history starts with William Griggesson, added to the Subsidy Rolls of Cambridgeshire in 1327. Griggs genealogy lays claim to a few well-known people, like award-winning first responder Bill Griggs, astronaut Admiral David Griggs, and New Jersey Governor and McKinley Attorney General John Griggs.
