The stumbling blocks on my W*GG* line:
Hi, I have found my husbands family, Wigg, from Tickhill and Suffolk but his gran Alice (Carney, nee Wigg)was born 1903 to Minnie Wigg but I can't find Minnie's husband James Jenkinson or any other children. Alice's father was James Jenkinson but as he married her mother later she always thought him to be her step father not her real father and only found out at his funeral. Where do I go for help? I'm new at this.

Thanks to Vivian , I have got a lot of information and am very greatful thank you.

Hi There,
I have a problem........ The furthest i have gone back in my Wagg line is Maurice Wagg born in Hampshire 1818 (thanks to Vivian) Who were Maurice's parents and siblings? Does anyone know? I have a feeling Wagge was changed to Wagg somewhere along the line but can't quite put my finger on where.


NAME Anne Dewing
DATE 29 September 2005

I have started to search my husband's family who are based in Trunch and Felmington in Norfolk. The Dewing family married into the Cutting family of Trunch in the early 1800's. From the information on this website it has given me some clues to follow up in my research.


NAME Helen Andrews
DATE October 7,2005

The stumbling blocks on my W*GG* line:
Good Morning, Everyone. I am the daughter of Rosamond Geraldine Andrews, daughter of Horace Charles Andrews and Anne Laurie Martens Coe. Apparently along the line somewhere the Weggs and the Andrews are related. Horace Charles Andrews came to Canada back in 1900's. On the way to Saskatchewan to work on his cousins farm he met my Grandmother Anne Laurie Martens Coe. His brother Russell was already at the ranch in Saskatchewan. Horace and Annie married shortly after and my mother Rosamond was born October 4, 1912. Horace and Annie sent for her sister Ehel Coe who shortly after arriving in Saskatchewan married my uncle Russell. The two brothers moved onto other endevers from farming to chicken ranching. My uncle Russell past away sometime before I was born. My mother first married a man by the name of Ernie Dann and had 10 children by him. My mother left Ernie when my brother was 3. (half-brother) My mother then met and lived with Everette Dykstra for the next 23years before her passing. My brother D'Arcy was 9 when I was born. I am my fathers only child and therefore had the name of Helen Irene Dykstra. I have since married the adopted son of my uncle. Yes, my uncle. That is how I got the name of Andrews again. And I am extremely proud of this name. My children have the name of my birth mother. I had the pleasure of knowing my Grandfather. He was kind and very loving. Even to a bastard child. There are many things in our pasts that many people would put you down for. Love should never be one. My uncle didn't really speak fondly of my grandfather. But he was the only boy born to a family of 7. This was my grandfathers first wife and when she passed on, there was small children to care for and a man alone couldn't do it. I have heard through the years that my grandfather married the girl next door, mainly because of her age(16)and the fact that he needed someone to take care of the smaller children while he did the farming. There is alot of stories I could tell someone if they really wanted to know. It is funny. My husband and I have just recently purchased a farm, well an acreage. We have horses and chickens matter infact I suppose you could say I have gone back to my roots. My grandfather had a chicken ranch. Well, for 5 years anyhow. I have memories of seeing my Aunts up on the roof of the barn putting up the shingles, and all you saw was butts. That is also the year I fell into the well. Lucky it wasn't that deep yet. And no water. That was the biggest thing about the chicken ranch. Grandpa never really did find a good well.

I would love to hear from anyone that would be related to Horace Charles Andrews. To me, the greatest Grandfather that ever lived.


NAME David Wagg
DATE Dec 31 2005

The stumbling blocks on my W*GG* line:

David Wagg

NAME Colin Wagg

looking for some history to the family name


NAME David Wagg
DATE Jan 7 2006

The stumbling blocks on my W*GG* line:
If anyone can help me go further back in the records it would be appreciated. We know somewhere along the line there were two brothers that came from Europe and settled in Ontario, Canada. One went to Newfounland and one settled in the Oshawa area. Below is the newfoundland branch of the family. Feel free to fill in the blanks. This information was passed to me by my Uncle Rennie Wagg. I hope this helps.

I believe this to be a scenario of the background of the Wagg's of Burin. The first part I cannot prove as yet but it just makes too much sense to be ignored. James Wagg m, Mary moyal Jan 2nd 1722 at Ringwood
James Wagg m, Margaret Troke Dec 17th 1772 at Christchurch.
James Wagg m, Jenny King Jan 27th 1772 at Christchurch,
Christchurch is just 10 miles from Ringwood.
From here on I believe it to be factual.
James Wagg was baptized Nov 3rd 1776 at Christchurch.
This James Wagg definitely settled in Newfoundland and I believe that he was the son of James Wagg and Jenny King.

* My great great grandfather was definitely Thomas Wagg but as of yet I cannot prove that he was the son of James Wagg. So far I cannot find a record of the death of James Wagg at Burin but I do have a record of a James Wagg at Carbonear. I have a record of the Baptism of james wagg at Christchurch.
