Re: George Liggins and Ellen Cotton
Not sure whether there is any connection but I am researching my Mother-in-law's family tree, and have the following-
Jonathan Liggins married Mary Ann Meridew on 22/12/1814 at St. Micheals, Coventry.
They had Selina Liggins (dob. 26/9/1817) I have no details of her siblings. She married John Albutt on 3/9/1848 at Holy Trinity, Coventry.
Selina and John had daughter- Emily Albutt- Christened on 14/10/1851 at Holy Trinity, Coventry.
There may be a conection with your liggins- Good Luck!
