    The Life of Job Wigley, Sr. and His Descendents

    Having a unique and interesting surname such as “Wigley” was sometimes embarrassing to me when I was very young because it was so easy for people to make fun of the name. However, in later years, I found an unusual name to be quite convenient when I began to do genealogical research. Through immigration, the Wigley name has been propagated throughout the English speaking world. Today, over 4,000 Wigley families live in the United States, and almost 3,000 families remain in England. Other concentrations are located in Australia, Wales, Canada, and New Zealand. This book starts at the beginnings of the Wigley name in England, then focuses primarily on one of the Wigley families who immigrated to the New World as part of British colonization: specifically Job Wigley and his descendants, who came to Westmoreland County in the Northern Neck of Virginia, shortly before the Revolutionary War.
