I'm Heidi Spriggs (born 1987) and I am 20 years old. I am an imaginative writing student at Liverpool John Moores University, though liverpool is not where my family hails from. Anyway, I have to do a portfoilio of poetry for my final year based on a theme, and I have come up with family.
So what I am trying to do is trace back a little and see what inspiration I can get from my ancestors.
My family all comes from Northamptonshire as far as I am aware. I have two sisters, Nicola Spriggs (born 1983) and Kelly Spriggs (Born 1988). My mother is Stephanie Spriggs (Born 1965) and she is unmarried, so I inheirted the name from my mum's side of the family.
Her mother is Violet Spriggs (born 1935), her madien name is Clarke, her husband was Jeff Spriggs (born 1932?) he left my gran when my mum was still a kid so I don't know him unfortunatly, which is a shame cause he could have held more information.
My mother has two siblings an older one, Slvia (date unknown), I don't know her married name and she is also estranged. Her younger brother is Darren Spriggs (Born 1968?)
I just rang my mum for help with the dates but the trouble with most of my family being estranged that nothing is for certain.
