Riggs Family


Early Family

 

Descendants of Edward Riggs

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

1.  EDWARD1 RIGGS was born Abt. 1475 in England.

 

Notes for EDWARD RIGGS:

Descendants of James Riggs, who was born in Rock Creek, Montgomery Co., Maryland, 1742. lived in Bedford Co., Penna.. and New Matamoras, Ohio: Compiled by Ethel Leota Riggs Davis, 329 Washington ST., Klamath Falls, Oregon.

 

Mr. E. Francis Riggs spent years in search fro Riggs data and he said; "O have always been convinced that New England, New Jersey and Maryland clans were of the same origin and that their origin was English." Th name is spelled Ryggs, Riggs Rigges, Rigge, but all the same family.

 

Tradition in our branch of the family is that all the Riggs are the same family and that they are English. The first story I ever heard about our family was that During the Rev. War the owned the land on which the Riggs Bank, Washington, D. C. now stands.

The first Riggs data I have is of the Riggs family of Southampton County, of Hampshire England and of Sussex, England. They owned the manor of Farenham near Southampton. in the parish Church, Fareham, in the Chancel in a permanent place are the monuments of several of the family with armorial bearings. The arms are given in Berry's "Berrys Visitations and Haunts." In this family we find the names Edward, Edmund, Thomas, John, William, Robert, Francis, Mary, Elizabeth, Ann and Margaret. all of these names are prominent in the New England and Maryland families. In my family there were always Edmunds. My record of the English Riggs family were taken for the most part from "The Goodman Family History," Which is an old English book showing woodcuts of Riggs. The Riggs and Goodman families were intermarried. One Illustration we Edmund Riggs and his bride, Margaret Savage, with their wedding party leaving the church.
