The CHUGG family hail from Devonshire, and have had a few successful journeys across the seas.

One branch became Latter Day Saints and travelled across America to Utah in covered wagons. Others, as free settlers and as convicts, made the journey to Australia.

I have removed most of the individual CHUGG people from these pages, as I needed the room. Of course, all the data (and indeed much more than ever appeared here) is still recorded in my off line database - The Master Genealogist.

I can supply all, or a portion, of this data to anyone who has a interest. Just email me.
