Looking for family history of Mary Piggott, Bajan buried in Liverpool

Mary Piggott Barbados (click photo for large)

Dear readers at Barbados Free Press

I am searching for any information which may be of assistance in helping locate the birthplace and ancestry of a lady named Mary Piggott, whose tombstone is in the churchyard of St George, Everton, Liverpool,UK, which states she was of Barbados, but unfortunately no information as to whether she was a resident or visitor to the UK, her place of residence before death, or familial status exists.

Here lieth the Body of
MARY PIGGOTT,
of Barbadoes, who departed this life
on the 20th day of July 1825,
Aged 57 Years. (57 or 37?)

Here the wicked cease from troubling:
and the weary are at rest.

To the present I have been unable to find any record of Mary Piggot, other than the record dating her interment at the above graveyard. However, I was intrigued to find that there was there was a slave owner called Mary Piggott in Barbados, and that there is a Mary E.Piggott primary school in Barbados, and that on neighbouring islands there also exist Mary E.Piggott streets. I was wondering if there may, however tenuous, be a link between the similarly named persons. Any information on the ancestral background of Mary E. Piggott may assist in my future search with my Liverpool Mary Piggott.

Thank you for taking the time to read my request, a little short of detail I know.

I’m hoping you or maybe some interested party may find my plea worthy of consideration.

    A husband is not mentioned on the tombstone. She probably was a spinster …. perhaps

  6. John

    This is probably the most likely person from the baptisms on familysearch if she was 37. In which case her parents were Thomas Piggott married to Mary Lawrence.

    I am advised that Mary Piggott maybe her married name and you should attempt to request and perhaps hv to pay for her marriage certificate

  8. John

    If a marriage certificate is required once it is prior to 1848, may even be 1887, you can use this site to choose Barbados Church Records and then browse them for free
