Several years ago I corresponded via e-mail with a couple of Dutch citizens from the village of Tilburg. What is interesting is that their surname is Pigmans. I don't know why the "s" is on there but one individual I was talking to was Peter-Paul Pigmans who was a rather popular D.J. (gabber?) of Euro techno music. We were talking about our common genealogy questions. He died soon after of brain cancer. Here is a link about him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter-Paul_Pigmans

An observation of mine is that Tilburg seems to be almost directly across the channel from Old Hunstanton. It could be I am looking at several moves of the family during the late 1500's and 1600's. From France to the Netherlands to Norfolk and then my ancestor moved to colonial Maryland. Does this scenario seem plausible to you?

Makes it harder that this happened so very long ago. The records are just now being put on line which is wonderful!

Cheers,
Curtis Pigman(Pigmon/Pimond)
