I think my grandfather was born in Portsmouth, but I'm not sure. He was in the Royal Navy, and was stationed in Rosyth in the 30's, which is where he met my grandmother, whom I never knew. He settled in Fraserburgh, although I do not know why, and that is where my father, my sister and I were born. My mother comes from that area.
Triggs is certainly a Cornish surname, and I find myself here by pure chance! There are several Triggs' in the telephone book, but not many elsewhere in Britain.
