  2. Hi
    RE: Elizabeth Haggis born 1770. Baptised 15th April, 1770, Trumpington.

    Elizabeth Haggis married John howard 24 Oct 1791 in Trumpington. Elizabeth and John are my gx5 grandparents.
    John died in 1839 in Trumpington. Elizabeth was alive in the 1841 census but can find no trace of her after that time – not even a death record.
    John and Elizabeth had 7 children together. I am decended from their son Bransom Howard born in 1795.
    Can provide more details to anyone also researching this family.
    Best wishes

  3. Hi Catherine, thanks for your comment!

    Around the middle of the 19th century a lot of my family from Cambridgeshire moved to the midlands (Birmingham). Is there a chance Elizabeth could have done the same, maybe to go to live with a child, or grandchild after she was widowed?

  4. I come from a line of Haggis’,father Ian, uncle Geoff, grandfather Harold. There are more and I will provide more info if needed. A letter from another Richard Haggis in a magazine prompted my Google search as I have never seen my name anywhere else, other than Paul Haggis. It would be nice to talk to others who were given a hard time at school!!

  5. Hi Kate, just stubbled on your website, I am another of the Haggis’s decended from the Cambridge farmers. I did a quick trip to Cambridge in 2011 and wizzed round many of the addresses you can pick from the Victorian records. Lots of lovely of old churches to see, but unfortunately the local gravestones crumble after a 100 years. Haggis Farm Polo Club really exists and so does a street called Haggis Gap in Fulbourn.
    I would love to see an old photo of The Hoop Hotel which was in Rose Crescent until about 1900 when one side of the street was rebuilt.
    Good health to you all where ever you are in the world.

  6. Hi. I’m not related to the Haggis family but my great-uncle Thomas Froome Wilson farmed Haggis Farm in the early part of the 20th century. I don’t know whether he owned or rented the farm but I suspect the latter; his mother had financed his foray into farming as he descended from farmer/butchers in Berkshire. He was resident at Haggis Farm in the 1901 & 1911 censuses but we know he had financial difficulties at some stage and the Farmer’s Union helped him to avoid becoming legally bankrupt and to find accommodation in Fulbourn where he lived with one of his daughters until his death. I’m pleased to have found the information you all give as my family has often wondered about the name of the farm.
