Griffin de Warren was born 1345 in Ightfield, Shropshire, England to Griffin de Warren (1320-1356) and Matilda le Strange (c1320-1350) and died 1405 Ightfield, Shropshire, England of unspecified causes.

Research Notes

Griffin is a Welsh name, the second element deriving from Welsh udd "lord, prince" but the first element being of uncertain meaning. Ightfield was mentioned as ISTEFELT in the Domesday Book and though not as important as some parishes in the area, it had its own priest which implies an established community which had its own church. The constant necessity of defending their territories against the Welsh prompted the Norman lords of Shropshire to such activity in castle-building that out of 186 castles in England no less than 32 are in this county. Shropshire became a key area within the Welsh Marches.
