John Rigg (senior)(1763-1829)

John Rigg was christened at St Botolph Bishopsgate London England to parents Robert and Ann Rigg on 24 April 1763.
John Rigg is the putative father of James Rigg (1816-1883).

We deduce from Parish records that he married twice: John Rigg a bachelor married(1) Mary Davies(c1763-1806) a spinster on 23 June 1788 St Katherine Coleman, City of London, England. Mary Davies died aged 43 on 23rd February 1806.

The children of this marriage were:

John Rigg a widower married(2) Mary Jacob a spinster after Banns on 13th, 20th, and 27th July 1806 on 3 Aug 1806 at Christchurch, Spitalfields Stepney, London England.

The children of this marriage were:

Mary Davis(1763-1806) is possibly the sister? of George Davis who was married to Mary Parker [source IGI: marriage on 3 November 1791 St Nicholas, Rochester, Kent, England]. George and Mary Davis had children including:

Mary Jacob is almost certainly identified as:
Mary Jacob born 18 November 1786 and christened 10 December 1786 at London St Stephen Coleman Street with parents James Jacob and Sarah.
[source: London England Baptisms, Marriages & Burials 1538-1812 St Stephen Coleman Street, London, England]
John Rigg is almost certainly identified as:
John Rigg christened 24/4/1763 at St Botolph Bishopsgate London, England with parents Robert Rigg and Ann.
[source: London England Baptisms, Marriages & Burials 1538-1812 St Botolph, Bishopsgate, London, England]
N.B. John Rigg born c1764 died aged 65 on 10th September 1829 at Queens Court Great Suffolk Street, London - a street where the Rigg family had lived.

John Rigg was recorded at different times of his life as:
a hairdresser during his first marriage. NB His first wife's father was also a hairdresser.
a victualler in 1807
a Labourer from 1813 to 1826.
He died in 1829 at Queens Court, Gt Suffolk Street.
In 1837 the marriage certificate of his son William records John Rigg as deceased.
In 1846 he was not present at the marriage of his son James and is recorded as a licenced victualler. NB The witnesses were both from the McDonald family.
In 1847 at the marriage of his son Robert, he was recorded as a hairdresser, and presumably not present; the marriage witnesses were of neither family.

The Parents of Mary Jacob were James Jacob and Sarah presumably from London - yet to be verified.
The parents of John Rigg(1763-1829) were Robert Rigg(c1735-??) and Ann presumably from London - yet to be verified.
