The name is a result of the original family having lived in an estate called Bigland, in the parish of Cartmell, North Lancashire. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from Biglands, a hamlet in Cumbria.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Biglynds to arrive in North America: Patrick Bigland, who arrived in New York in 1824.
