  • ID: I63798
  • Name: John Rigmaden
  • Sex: M
  • Residence: New Hall
  • Note:

    The earliest mention of the surname Rigmaiden I have found is 1285 where a John de Ryggemayden appears in the Lancashire Assize rolls and is from Rigmaiden in Cumberland.
    Apart from this the Rigmaidens were an old gentry family from Lancashire and for over 300 years were lords of the manor of Wedacre and Scourton, near Garstang. One John de Rygmaiden in the 14th century was said to be descended from a branch of the Mansergh family, of Mansergh in Westmoreland, who adopted the name of Rygmaiden from the name of a Hall in that township and later settled at Wedacre Hall.
