Higgins Genealogy & History

Higgins is an ancient Irish name; in Gaelic it is O'Huigan, derived from "uiging", which means Viking. The Higgins family is first found in Sligo, where they held a feudal manor. They were a branch of the O'Neills clan, which is said to descend from Niall, fourth king of Ireland. Higgins genealogy is made more complicated by the many variations on the name: Higgens, Higginson, Huggins, O'Higgans, and, in Ireland, Hagan. The Higgins motto, "pro patria", means "for my country"; the crest has a griffin, symbolizing worship of the sun. Higgins family history in America dates back to Virginia in 1623.
