Dear Stephen Huggins
What you have written is most interesting. All we knew when I lived in Trinidad was that a Huggins came from Britain to Nevis after the Battle of Nazeby - family traditions were that he was a royalist officer, but no one seemed to have record of his name or from where he came, except that a young officer called Robert Haggines is mentioned on the Royalist battle list, and, as names were spelt as they were pronounced, we had assumed that this would be Huggins, in prefernce to Sir Thomas Huggins (written as Huggins), also mentioned on the battle list, but as a roundhead officer. The late Roy Huggins of Hollywood believed him to be Irish as family records show quite a number of marriages with Irish girls during the eighteenth century. I have searched births, marriages and deaths records in the South West of England, but the few Huggins families here seemed to remain in the area. I would very much like to learn more from you. Can we make direct contact somehow?
