I am working with a distant "cousin" to verify allied family information collected for a northern Virginia history. Here is an outline of the Pigg family for whom I'm searching:
- John and Jane (Shipingfeld?) Pigg are thought to be the parents of nine children: Henry, Ellen, John Jr, George, Garrett, William, Paul, Edward and Elizabeth.
- John Pigg received numerous land grants near the Mattpony River in New Kent County beginning in 1658; portions of New Kent County later became King and Queen County.
There are at least two possible Pigg connections to the George and John Mott family of Virginia:
- George Mott is believed to have married Elizabeth Pigg. They had four daughters: Margaret, Elizabeth, Eleanor/Ellen and Ann. They lived in the Old Rappahannock/King George County area and after George's death in 1674, Elizabeth (Pigg?) Mott married James Harrison.
- Elizabeth Pigg's brother, John Jr, is believed to have married an Elizabeth Mott.
I have collected some documentation on the early Piggs in Viriginia and am willing to share so please contact me if you are interested in an exchange on this family line in early Virginia!
Thanks in advance, Lisa
