Its our lucky day! It looks as if we may be from the same stock. My Great, Great Grandfather John Biggins may have been a brother to the James Biggins who I think headed the Cambuslang branch of the Biggins tree. My John Biggins was a coalminer who married Mary McCabe in Glasgow in 1843 and all their children were born in Galston, Ayrshire. I haven't been able to get much beyond this stage but I also believe that they were from Ireland.
