The Warwickshire/Leicestershire - Liggins Family Tree Updated February 13, 2005
About Our Family Research
The earliest Liggins ancestor that has been possitively identified in this tree is the John Liggins who married Ann Bromwich in Holy Trinity Church, Churchover, Warwickshire, on 26th December 1775. Some of their descendants are still living in Warwickshire, but many are scattered around the world as well.
When I first started my research, the only information that I had was that my grandfather had come from Churchover, near Rugby and that he had three brothers who emigrated to the United States with him in the 1880's. There they had a farm in North Dakota, this was sold when they moved to the Klondike in the 1890's Gold Rush. They had two claims in Bonanza Creek. Eventually the brothers returned to Warwickshire, where, their wandering days over, they married and stayed for the rest of their lives.
In my research I have made contact with distant cousins living in Derbyshire and New Zealand, through their web pages and also with the publisher of The Cleaver Chronicle (also on line) who I believe may be a distant relative.
