I always seem to hit a bit of a brick wall on this surname. So I'm hoping that maybe someone out there can give me a little bit of help.

My Great Grandfather was Ernest Griffin. He was born somewhere in the mid to late 1800's, somewhere around the Peterborough area, though I'm not sure exactly where. He worked as a railwayman on the east coast main line from London to Edinburgh. I always thought he was a guardsman, but I have since been told that he was a driver on such engines as The Mallard & the Flying Scotsman.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, so maybe there's someone out there who could do a look up for me please.
