           John Rigg was born in 1829 at Holker, Cartmel, Lancashire, England..10,11,12,13,14,15
     John, age 12, appears in the census of 1841 in the Township of Staveley, Cartmel, Lancashire, England. It seems that he was living on this farm with numerous other workers as an agricultural laborer.1
     John Rigg married Ruth Pearson, daughter of John Pearson and Hannah Ashburner, on 14 December 1850 at Holy Trinity Church, Parish of Ulverston, Ulverston, Lancashire, England.

     John, age 22, appears as head of household in the census of 1851 in Dalton, Lancashire, England, with Ruth Pearson. An apprentice, age 16, also appears on the census with this family. The given name says RIGG and then it's a ditto for the surname which means his complete name is RIGG RIGG. I think the census taker did not take down his given name. Perhaps this appentice was a Rigg family member.2

James Healey, age 28, was also enumerated with this family as a journeyman shoemaker, probably under John's tutelage. Ann Hurst, age 13, was a house servant to the family3 and John and Ruth resided in April 1861 at Dalton with their children Thomas, John, Hannah, Elizabeth, and Joseph.49,3
