Hi

Nice to be in contact with another Diggle descendant. Sorry, not one of yours and a bit infuriating. I have been looking into my Diggles for ages with a good head start from my auntie. Iím not related but the annoying thing is mine have been so close and Iíve seen Moreton Diggles so often to discount. Mine are in Lancashire but mostly Catholic and also some in Australia

However Iíll look at our old notes and search results and see if I have anything relevant

Good luck and enjoy Rootschat


Best wishes

Emms :)

Hi Emms
Thanks for the response.

As luck would have it, my second cousin did a DNA test and discovered other second cousins in Australia (Melbourne region) and this has put us in touch with my grandfather's second family which he had after absconding over there! They had been looking for a history of their grandfather before he arrived in Australia. Both ends of the story are now joined, amazingly.

Seems like quite a lot of Diggles end up down under.
