Welcome to our home page. We are descendants of Shropshire BAILEY and Worcestershire WHEELER ancestors, and also Dorset RIGGS. Our RIGGS ancestry goes back to two separate lines - George and Alice RIGGS of Cheselborne, born mid 1600's, and John and Dorothy RIGGS, originating in Puddletown, Dorset around the same time.
The Shropshire connection is through BAILEYs from Old Park, Dawley, and GREGORYs from Rodington.Finally, the WHEELERs originated in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

I am carrying out a One-Name Study for the BAILEY surname in Dawley, Shropshire and its surrounding villages - Madeley, Lawley, Broseley, Doseley, Dawley Magna and Dawley Parva, Horsehay etc. and would love to hear from any descendants who have information to share, or who have hit the proverbial ''brick-wall'' and need FREE info. I can help with census, parish and other data from the 1700's to the 1901 census, and have details of many other Dawley surnames, whose family members married into Bailey ones - BAUGH, PITCHFORD, FLETCHER, BROOKES, FARLOW/FARLEY, GUY, HUMPHRIES, JUKES, LAVENDER, MARTIN, PICKERING, RHODES, ROTHWELL etc. etc. etc.! Do Please Get In Touch - I would love to help!
