Biographical Summary:

"...Isaac Wiggall was born in England in 1789. On January 10, 1820, Isaac, his wife Elizabeth and four children, Eli, George, Joseph and Elizabeth left England for South Africa. At that time over 4000 British men, women and children went to Southern Africa as “The 1820 Settlers”. The Family arrived in Algoa Bay, South Africa on April 29, 1820. At that time the spelling of the family name somehow got changed from Wiggall to Wiggill. All of the records for Isaac and all his descendants from this time on (eight more children were born in South Africa) show the name spelled WIGGILL. A large number of the Wiggill Family still reside in South Africa.

Eli Wiggill, the eldest son of Isaac Wiggill, converted to Mormonism while in South Africa. In 1861 Eli and his wife Susanna left South Africa for America to settle in Salt Lake City, Utah. (There is a fascinating 60-page autobiography of Eli Wiggill and his life from England to South Africa to Salt Lake City). All of the descendants of Eli Wiggill have the WIGGILL spelling of the name. Most of these descendants live in the western United States area of Utah, Montana, Oregon and in southern Alberta Canada..."
