My name is Corbett. My mothers madin name was Biggin. Her grand father came over from Island durring the patato famine. He was sixteen and alone. Anyway my mother had ten brothers and sisters. I believe they all lived in Brooklyn as we did. I would like to hear from Biggins who might be in this same line. If you e-mail me I might be able to look you up in my Biggin family history. An added note. My mothers father was called big Jim Biggin. I was told that on St Pats day he would put on an orange shirt and go into an Irish bar looking for a fight. Tough people these Biggins.
