Bagot family forum

In the past few weeks I've had quite a lot of correspondence with people researching the Bagot family, and we've had a fruitful exchange of information.

As a result of this, and to facilitate further exchanges, we've set up a Bagot family forum on YahooGroups, and invite other Bagot researchers to join us there. The forum is intended mainly for people who are interested in or descended from Bagot families in north Lancashire and surrounding areas. In addition to the usual exchange of messages informing people about new discoveries, there are facilities for file exchange and creation of databases.

There are various spellings of the name. Bagot is the most common, but Bagott, Bagett, Bagat and other variations are quite common.

No members of our family in this picture of Tintagel churchyard in Cornwall. we had some how were born here, but none, apparently, who died here. The war memorial may be of interest to some.
