I am looking for other researchers working on the Bugg families in Yorkshire during the period between 1660 and 1850. Most of the Yorkshire records concentrate the Buggs in the East Riding in the environs of Kingston upon Hull and Beverley though there are others scattered about the county in the North and West Ridings.
I believe I've managed to trace my family back to 1660 in Scorborough, just north of Beverley. The records for the period are rather sporadic and difficult to document the necessary links. I'd like to compare notes with other researchers and share what I have.
My own family left Yorkshire in the 1830s and emigrated to Ontario, Canada. They were of the 9 children of William Bugg and Elizabeth Walker, m. 3 Dec 1804. At least 4 brothers (John b. 1807, Richard b. 1811, William b. 1814, James b. 1818) settled in Ontario. Two additional siblings (Elizabeth b. 1816, Thomas b.1824) may also have settled in Ontario but my records aren't conclusive on this. Only Sarah, b. 1809, m. Robert Greenbury 1827, I know to have remained in Yorkshire beyond the 1830s.
Of the 4 brothers I know to have emigrated to Canada, their descendants now constitute many of the Buggs residing in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia in Canada as well as Michigan in the USA.
