many Maggs's around the world
Hello to one and all maggs clan around the world...
Let me introduce myself, My name is Stephen Maggs, though I'm known as Wayne (Don't ask). I live in Victoria Australia. I've been interested in the maggs lineage for many years and did a bit of research years ago. By looking at many of these posts and tracking other websites, I see that the lineage has gone far back as the 1600 - 1700's. I do recall when I did a family check, I came up with info about the Maggs family name dating back as far as the 12th century, originating from Southern Wales, and the name Maggs, had been a derivative of the name Margrette. The family cress was the same as it is now, I actually have a copy here, and if anyone is interested, I'll grab the site and post it here within the next week or so.
As for those of us in Australia, I have known for a while now that there are many of us in Oz, too many, in fact I got lazy and gave up...
so there ya go. sink your imaginations into this piece of info and I'll try to endeavour to obtain all that info I had from years ago, and past it on to those whom are interested.
One thing more, I can't believe how wide spread we are, its amazing, its like a convoy of ants, (hehe) tho there were a lot of "inter Marraiges" within the Maggs family, I'm definately NOT from Tasmania tho (hahahaha).(Aussie joke).
Take care to all. Word of warning tho, my email address will be changing so please try not to email me yet until I've posted all the new info. This forum will suffice.
May Buddha bless you all
