Fulham Piggins Antecedents

Descendants of
a doctor's assistant called PIGGINS of Nottingham who "married beneath him"
The dates of birth and death of the ancestor mentioned above are unknown.
One more elaborate account has it that Fred, right, was the illegitimate son of (an aunt?) of Jesse Boot, the industrialist
It would be more plausible however to suppose that he was the son of the George Piggins, aged 15, bricklayer, listed in the 1841 census as living at Burlington Rd, Fulham. Of this George we only know that he was born in the county where he lived (Middlesex?).
William FREDerick, of Everington St, Fulham; he had some connection to Boots
* 1855 or 1856 at "Nottingham": no record of birth found, perhaps born in London (at age 25 in 1881 he said he had been born in Kensington, and at age 45 in 1901 he said he had been born in Notting Hill!) or illegitimate
