Frank Algernon Bigg- born 1867 Hertfordshire UK

Does anyone know what happened to this child?

His parents were Austen Bigg and Fanny Bigg (nee Looker) both of whom emigrated to Toowoomba in Queensland, Australia in the late 1880's along with their other children. His siblings were: Percival Austen Bigg (b 1866) Wormley, Hertfordshire; Archibald Walpole Bigg (b 1868) Whitwick, Leicestershire; Sidney Leonard Bigg (b 1870) Whitwick, Leicestershire; Reginald Lahee Bigg (b 1872) Whitwick, Leicestershire; Lilian Francis Bigg (b 1874) Herefordshire(probably Bromyard); Temple Annesley Bigg (b 1875) Bromyard, Herefordshire; Basil Ambrose Bigg (b 1877) bromyard, herefordshire; Benjamin Cecil Bigg (b 1882) Bromyard, Herefordshire; Frank Aubrey Bigg, (b 1884) Bromyard Hertfordshire.

Frank Algernon Bigg does not appear on the UK 1871 census in Leicestershire, where his family moved to in 1868. Neither does there appear to be a death or burial record for this child or any records for him in Australia.

His father, Austen was a school teacher, born in Kent. His mother, Fanny came from Berkshire.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

I have records of the Bigg family from when they migrated to Australia and will look them up and let you know, I am through the line of Reginald. We had a ceremony to place a headstone on the grave of Austen Bigg a couple of years ago in Toowoomba. Austen lived on a farm at the foot of the Toowoomba range at a small town called Withcott.

Our records show he died in infancy and never migrated to Australia. Percival also never migrated to Australia, they were expecting him to follow but he was involved with a lady.
