The name Higgins in Ireland is
derived from either Anglo settlers
who arrived into the country in
the seventeenth century or from
native Gaelic Septs who adopted it
as the anglicized version of their name.
The main Sept which did this was the
O'hUigin Sept who were based in
County Sligo. The name is still among
the one hundred most commonly
found in Ireland.
A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
