Shropshire Biggs - Are Rushbury Biggs really Pigg?

Surnames: Biggs Pigg
Have been searching for birth records for William Biggs of Rushbury, born ~1800. I could not find any Biggs in baptism records for Rushbury for the relevant dates but there were a couple of families named Pigg. I then noticed when looking though the Rushbury 1841 census that none of the Pigg people were present in Rushbury but several of the Biggs in the census appeared to be an exact match for the Pigg families in the birth records. Is it possible that these are the same families? Has anyone any thoughts on this.
