5.  EDWARD4 GRIFFIN (JOHAN3 PENGRUFFWND, GRUFFYDD2, RICHIART1)1 was born Abt. 1602 in Walton, Pembrokeshire, Wales1, and died Aft. 1698 in Flushing, Queens Co., New York.  He married MARY in Flushing, Queens Co., New York.  She was born Abt. 1630, and died Aft. 1700 in Flushing, Queens Co., New York.
Edward went from Wales to England and adopted the English spelling of his surname (originally Pengruffwnd, then Griffith). He was a constable in London when he killed a man in a tavern in the line of duty. He was pardoned by King Charles I on July 1, 1625 for justifiable manslaughter. He was said to have been a trusted servant and financial
agent for Lady Wake (Wakefield?) in 1633.
About that time Edward was probably enticed by the favorable "hand bills" being posted illustrating great opportunities in the Virginia Colonies of America. Edward and John
both appeared as passengers on ships sailing to America in 1635.
Edward and John sailed from England, on August 24, 1635 bound for Virginia, Edward aboard the ship "Abraham," John aboard the "Constance".
Edward first settled on Kent Island off the east shore of Chesapeake Bay near the mouth of the Susquehanna River. It is reported that he built oak staves for the hulls of ships.
He and brother John were in the employ of Capt. Claiborne, Secretary of the Virginia Colony, when the Captain's Virginia traders were seized by armed emissaries of Lord Baltimore of Maryland in June 1638. Three defenders were killed, and they captured Edward Griffin and took him to Maryland. Edward escaped to the Dutch Colony of New Amsterdam, where he acquired land and finally located at Flushing L.I. about 1657 as one of its first settlers.  He joined the Society of Friends Quakers in 1657 and protested the persecution of Quakers to Gov. Peter Stuyvesant. His descendants in the third generation became pioneers in Westchester and Dutchess Counties (especially Nine Partners Patent area) in New York State.

aboard the Constance enroute to Virginia. In June 1638, when Lord Baltimore of Maryland ordered an attack of the Viriginia Islands of Kent and Palmer, which were under the protection of Capt. Claiborne, Secretary of the Colony of Virginia, John escaped by ship and left Virginia. John's name first appears on New Haven, CT records in 1642, and was enrolled in the militia. On Jan. 4, 1643, he was fined a few pence for not having his arms in shape. John took the Oath of Fidelity at New Haven on Jul. 1, 1644.
