Wigginton Family
Posted by: Stewart C. Wigginton Date: November 25, 1997 at 02:22:16
  of 642

In my research, I have found that two brothers William and Roger, immigrated to the American colonies in the mid 1600's. They settled in Virginia and were either planters or ship wrights. They were specifically located near Acquia Creek, which later was part of Culpepper County. Roger had a large family but his position was such in the community that he was considered part of the gentry. There are records from a general store where he traded that listed his name along with George Washington's as customers.
If he was a ship wright, he may have come from Bristol. I have just not been able to track the Wigginton's back to any specific location as to where they came from in England. If anyone has any knowledge concerning their origin, I would appreciate it if you would contact me.
Thanks very much,
