About  The Biggins Family
Please sign in to see more.
I started researching my family tree when I discovered that my grandad Biggins had  been killed in WW1 and had been awarded the DCM for bravery.   I have always been  told that the Biggins family originated in Sheffield and were mainly involved in the  cutlery/tool manufacture.  I have however found it increasingly difficult to trace  any further than I have and anyone who may be able to add to my research I would love  to hear from you.   There is a possibility that the Biggins string started in Ireland.

I have had the same sort of difficulty in the Brookes side of the tree - drawn blanks  all over the place, the name spelling is the most problematic.  Any help again would  be greatly appreciated.

I have however had more success in researching my paternal grandmother's side - the  Thornton's who don't seem to have strayed much over the years.

I hope you enjoy browsing my family history.
