Waggett Family message

Just wondered if it might be useful to register my interest in the Waggett family tree and lead mining on this website. A few years ago I did a fair bit of research on the Waggett family tree, now filed away, and more recently have had useful discussions with other researchers via the internet. I would be pleased to hear from anyone else who may be interested in the Waggett family history and looks at this website.

Hi Richard,
I am descended from Ann/Nanny Waggett Metcalfe (1750-1793). Her father was Ralph Waggett (b. 1719), son of Ralph (b. 1681), son of Giles (Gunnerside, using the Chapelry of Muker). I know that some of the Waggetts lived at Marrick and were baptizing at Grinton)

Two of Ann Waggett Metcalfe's granddaughters married their Waggett second cousins.

I would appreciate hearing what you know about this family, if it's the same one. I would assume that, going back far enough, they Marrick and Muker Waggetts may be linked.

I am researching the Waggett family, did any of the Waggett's go to Ireland during the 1600 -1700s?
