Samuel & Sarah Higgins, Holyhead
« on: Wednesday 17 August 16 16:32 BST (UK) »
I'm wondering if anyone is researching the Higgins family in Holyhead?

My 2nd great-grandfather was Samuel Wilson Higgins, born in Dublin in 1835, died in Holyhead in 1901.   His wife, Sarah, was born in Caergeiliog in 1838, died in Holyhead in 1916.

Their children were Margaret Ann Higgins (b.1857),  Thomas Higgins (b.1859),  William James Higgins (b.1861),  James Condren Higgins (b.1863),  George Higgins (b.1867),  Sarah Higgins (b.1870), Charlotte Alice Higgins (b.1870),  Mary Hannah Higgins (b.1873), Annie Frances Letitia Higgins (b.1875) and Benjamin John Havelock Skobeloffe Higgins (b.1878).

Any information will be gratefully received.

Regards

Neil Higgins

Thank you for your help. It has certainly filled in a few gaps.

Charlotte and Alice were born in Llanberis :)

I have found marriages for William, James and Benjamin.  If you know of any others I would be glad to hear of them.

Many thanks

Neil
