Warrington: "Edward Griffin of Baybrooke in Northamptonshire, at this time lieutenant-colonel in the Duke of York's regiment of footguards, now called the Coldstream: he was raised to the peerage in 1688, by the title of Lord Griffin, and followed the fortunes of his royal master after the revolution, and was outlawed. Being taken prisoner in the attempted invasion of Scotland in 1708, he was committed to the Tower, and died there in confinement in November 1710. He married Lady Essex Howard, eldest daughter and one of the two co-heirs of James Howard, third Earl of Suffolk. Their grandson, Edward, third Lord Griffin, dying s.p. in 1742, the barony became extinct."
