This family were farmers at Lanercost and Kirklinton, Cumberland. We believe that they moved west from Haltwhistle, Northumberland. John Pigg married Jane Jackson at Haltwhistle in 1754, they were both of the parish of Haltwhistle. John and Jane Pigg had three children, John, Adam and Joseph. Adam and Joseph both died in 1758, their father John was described as schoolmaster in their burial records. We found no further records of John and Jane in the Haltwhistle area.
John Pigg junior, born in 1754, married Mary Parker at Lanercost in 1780.
John and Mary had four children: Jane, Isabella, Joseph and John.
Jane, born at Kirklinton in 1781, married George Coats at Kirklinton in 1802, they lived near Carlisle.
Isabella, born at Kirklinton in 1783, married Henry Harding at Kirklinton in 1802.
Joseph, born at Kirklinton in 1787, married Isabella Wilson at Kirkbampton in 1815. Joseph and Isabella farmed at Great Orton and had a large family. Their gravestone is in the churchyard at Great Orton, it mentions two of their children dying in the USA. In fact three of their children emigrated to Homer, Illinois. These were Joseph, Mary and James. Mary had married William Todd before they emigrated. We found Joseph and James in some of the USA censuses, having changed their names from Pigg to Riggs.
John Pigg, born in 1789 at Lanercost, married Mary Norman at Kirklinton in 1819, they farmed at Blackrigg, Kirklinton and had a family.
Mary (Parker) John Pigg’s wife died some time between 1789 and 1792.
John Pigg remarried, to Mary Knubley at Crosby on Eden in 1792. John and Mary had four children, all born at Lanercost: Hannah, Matthew, Adam and Mary.
Hannah, born in 1794, married William Forrester at Kirklinton in 1816. William and Hannah had a large family at Kirklinton.
Matthew, born in 1798, married Ann Graham at Kirklinton in 1833. They had a family and farmed at Kirklinton.
Adam, born in 1800, married and was a farm labourer at Hesket in the Forest.
Mary married William Graham at Kirklinton in 1829, after her father’s death.
When John Pigg died in 1822 his will named all eight of his children.
