Re: Duggins name in England

In Reply to: Duggins name in England by Mark Gordon Duggins of 360

With a name like Gordon, I had to reply. My grandfather did some basic research in the early 1930's and swore that the family had derived from a Thomas Duggins and his mother who had set sail from Dublin and landed in the Fredericksburg, VA area in 1773. I had always heard in North Carolina that the family was Scotch-Irish. My friends who are experts in such matters assure me that the family is Irish. You have raised new possibilities. I never make it to the Midlands, but you have given me reason to think twice. Please tell me more. I should note that the grandfather I mentioned above was my mother's father and yes, he was a Duggins. Vertical family trees are common in the western part of North Carolina.
