Hi, just a brief message, is your Bigge name Irish? I am searching for Beggy or Biggy and now maybe even Bigge!

Actually I think it's an old English name--I have some Bigge ancestors and they all come from England. They lived in what is called the "Weald" of Kent, in towns named Benenden and Tenterden and other villages in the area. This line can be traced way back into the 15th century.

It's entirely possible that "Bigge" comes from an old Saxon name, so it would be "German" in that sense--but in my family it is strictly English!!

The only connection i know about in my family is that my mother had said that one of my Dad's relatives had gone into WWI and never was heard from again in the USA.
But, she also had said that someone thought he had a post in the queens court.
I have never found anything to verify this.
This relative was born in Rooks County, Ks, USA
