Bigod Eggleston was baptized Settrington, Yorkshire, 20 February 1586[/7], son of "James Egeleston." (Rosalie Eggleston and Linda Eggleston McBroom have identified the mother of Bigod Eggleston as Margaret, daughter of Miles Harker of Settrington.)
He came to Massachusetts Bay with his family in 1630. It is likely that he traveled aboard the Mary & John only if he had moved his family to Devon, Dorset, or Somerset by 1630. English records of this family 1615-30 have not been found..
Like the Mary & John passengers, they first settled in Dorchester MA & moved to Windsor CT in 1635. He died in Windsor 1 September 1674 "near 100 year old" (but actually eighty-seven).
MARRIAGE: (1) By 1612 _____ _____; not seen in any record.
(2) By about 1634 _____ _____; on 5 June 1645 "Baggett Egleston, for bequeathing his wife to a young man, is fined 20s.;" living on 13 November 1673 when named in her husband's will.
Anderson's Great Migration Begins, pp. 621 et seq.

Marjorie Russell's Russell Roots and Branches (Provo, Utah: Press Pub. Ltd., 1981) says: "Bygod Eggleston was the father of Samuel Eggleston (1.7.31). Bygod was Christened on 20 February 1586/1587 at Settrington, York, England, the son of James and Juliane (Bygod) Eggleston (L9.121 and L9.122) Bygod died 1 September 1674 at Windsor, Hartford, Conecticut. He had married three times; first to Mary Talcott, born about 1592 of Norwich, Norfolk, England, where she died. Bygod then married Mary Wall. Mary was born about 1610 of Braintree, Essex, England, the daughter of Moses and Ann (Skinner) Wall. Mary was also married to Robert Aylett. She died probably on 8 December 1657. Bygod finally married Sarah Talcott. Sarah was born about 1591, of Windsor. She died 25 July 1689 at Windsor"
