Genealogy of One Branch of the Bigelow Family, W H Bigelow, 1877, George E Selleck, Brattleboro, p3:
"To Hudson's History of Marlboro Mass., I owe the possession of the following data of the earliest records of the Bigelow race.
"This family was early in the Country, and may be traced to a remote period in England, even to the reign of Henry the 3d, (1206) when the name was written Baguley, and was derived from the place where they dwelt. Richard, at that time,was Lord of Baguley, and his descendants took the name of the place. In the reign of Henry the 7th, (1485) Ralph de Baguley was Lord of Allerton Hall. He died in 1540, leaving Randall and Nicholas. Randall died in 1556, and his sons Phillip and Robert divided his estate. Robert died in 1582, leaving a son Randall, who moved to Suffolk County, England, and died in 1626, leaving two sons, Francis and John. Francis died in 1657, and gave by will a portion of his property to his brotherJohn, then in New England, at Watertown, Mass."
