My gt grandmother's  Bessie Higgins b 24/5/1865 Tatworth birthday book has thrown up some Higgins names I have never come across.
Maud Higgins b 8/6/1886 m 6/1908
also a Florence Higgins 18/10/?
 and Douglas Higgins  b 10/2

any info would be fantastic as I have no idea who they are?

Thanks Mark

If you do not have access to any subscription sites, there are free sites which will help your search for these people.

Free BMD https://www.freebmd.org.uk/  shows the marriage of Maud in the indexes. There are two possible spouses and by process of elimination, you can see it is William Channon.
This is shown in 1911 which can be searched on Family Search https://www.familysearch.org/en/  You have to register but it is then free.

This site https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/login.asp is useful for births as you also get motherís maiden name.

Maude looks to have mother with maiden name Hooper.

Marriage 1885, Chard
George Higgins and Hester Hooper are on the same page.

Many thanks. I can see a Harry Cousins on the 24.6/?. I haven't noticed a Hooper in the book.
Thanks for all your help.
