In the 1891 UK census I have a George Griffin born Astwood Bank, Warwickshire in 1872. He was a Railway Porter and his brother? Thomas was a Carter at Railway Station. Thomas was born in 1867 at Sambourne, Warwickshire

Going by the information above in the 1881 UK census they are living with their mother Ellen, a Widow, born 1841, Bidford, Warwickshire. Thomas was a farm labourer, George was a scholar and they have 2 sisters, Emma 1874 a scholar and Mary Ann 1877 a scholar

Following Ellen to the 1871 Census she has a husband Thomas 1839 but he is a Carpenter, born 1839 in Worcestershire. In this census they have a 5 year old daughter Ellen born 1866 in Warwick

Thomas Griffin married Ellen Howell Alcester, Warwickshire, 1864, Q4 6D 875
Thomas Griffin died 1880 aged 41 at Alcester, Warwickshire, Q1 6D 414
