Biggin

BIGGIN, a township, in the parish of Wirksworth, hundred of Appletree, S. division of the county of Derby, 5½ miles (E. by N.) from Ashbourn; containing 149 inhabitants. Here was formerly a church or chapel, not even the site of which is now known. The township was once considered to be in the parish of Kniveton, but it has been deemed for nearly four centuries part of Wirksworth.
