Griffith Genealogy & History

Griffith is a Welsh name, immediately from Griffudd but ultimately Grippiud. The prevailing theory is that "griff" means strong grip, and "udd/iudd" means chief or lord. The name spread to Scotland initially, with the first recorded piece of Griffith family history being that of David Gryttyth, in the Lordship of Oswestry in 1295; it did not come to England until over two centuries later. Griffith genealogy includes several renowned people, such as British jet engineer Alan Griffith, British microbiologist Frederick Griffith, American actor Andy Griffith, American film director D. W. Griffith, American actor Melanie Griffith, and Samuel Griffith, who helped write the Australian Constitution.
