"Legg" surname from the Isles of Scilly and their descendants

To return to index page

 

This page correlates information with respect to those with the "Legg" surname from the Isles of Scilly, Cornwall, England & their descendants. Relationships have been calculated from baptismal and marriage records, 1841 - 1891 census data, and information supplied from others. The connections from my own direct line have also been confirmed from appropriate UK birth, marriage & death certificates. It appears that all Legg's are probably descended from either Gilbert Legg who married Anne Nichols on 1 October 1729 (and whose descendants were initially mainly based on St Mary's island) and Walter Legg who married Anne Stephens on 21 December 1738 (whose descendants were initially mainly based on Agnes island). The latter are more difficult to identify. The inidividuals are all listed in the table below where relationships are identifiable; while those for whom the parentage is not clear are listed at the end.

If you have any corrections or additional information on these individuals or any of their descendants, please email gjlegg@hotmail.com. Recent information on births etc for living persons is not included on this published page, although they are included on my private files.

My own particular ancestry is via two Legg lineages from my great grandfather Frederick Legg back via (i) William Legg, Tobias Legg, James Legg & (ii) via Mary Woodcock, Fanny Legg, Zacharias Legg - with both James & Zacharias being sons of Tobias Legg & Gilbert Legg. Full details of my ancestry & additional information can be found on my ancestral pages.

I have had the Y chromosome genetic test from Oxford Ancestors; these results should be the same for any male Legg descendants of Tobias Legg (and Gilbert Legg also if they have the same paternal ancestor) For those Legg's interested in comparing Y line results, I will maintain a data base of same, and inform contributors by e-mails of any matches. This will hopefully permit our ancestry to be extended substantially further back as well as providing a map of the Legg descendants. Further details are on my genetics page.
From my Oxford Ancestors Y line test results:
"on balance, the chances are that your distant paternal ancestors were drawn from the original Celtic inhabitants of Britain and Ireland"

Earlier ancestry of Gilbert Legg is not clear. What is known of the earlier ancestry of the Isles of Scilly Legg's and the derivation of the Legg name is on this page.
