David's Email

David Higgon seems to have died at Parrog, buried 11 Feb 1853 aged 51. Rachel Higgon, Parrog Rd., buried 13 April 1891 aged 84.

Register Ticket no:464706 for David Higgon gives born Newport, PEM 17 March 1802. Issued at Milford in 1849 whilst serving as a mate.
Register Ticket no:464707 for his son David Higgon gives born Newport, PEM on 11 Aug 1835. Issued at Milford in 1849 whilst serving as a boy.
These Tickets will be at TNA, Kew and should have descriptions of the men and in a complicated code some of their appointments. The fact the the two RTs have consecutive numbers suggests that they were both on the same vessel.
