Dear Sarah Trigger, The IGI for Staffordshire lists around 150 Triggers . The earliest being in Eccleshall in tha late 17th century . The largest grouping of Triggers are in small villiages to the west and south west of the county town of Stafford. Villiages such as Church Eaton Bradley and Gnosall.So they would have been involved in rural trades as opposed to being town or city dwellers. My family married into the female side of the Staffordshire Triggers in 1802. RagardsMr D Brew.
