Origins of surname

Meaning a descendant of 'Uiginn', this name has its orgins in very early Gaelic words for Vikings. There is also a suggestion that the name developed separately in England from the personal name Riichard, a link we find unlikely

Early records

The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of Mary, daughter of Andrew and Mary Higgins in St Ouen in 1806
