Private J. Griffin was a soldier serving with the North Lincolnshire Regiment of Foot when the Regiment was posted to the Eastern Frontier of the Cape Colony between 1860 and 1862, shortly after the Xhosa cattle-killing movement and famine (1857-1858).
At first, the Regiment was posted to Grahamstown but was later transferred to Keiskama Hoek (Keiskammahoek) in 1862.
Private J. Griffin only acted in one production.
