I added {{Puritan Great Migration|needs=Research}}, but wanted to ensure that was the right thing to do.  Thanks.

Hmm... I wonder about the story that he immigrated to New England and later went to Virginia. Few people did that. Some more sources are needed to substantiate the information in that profile.
He seems to be entirely a Virginia person.  There's nothing to suggest that he was ever in New England at all.  If Filby says a John Biggs sailed to New England in 1635, and if it's true, surely that was somebody else.

A review of Anderson indicates there was a John Bigg(s) who emigrated to Massachusetts in 1630, and stayed there.  Dying in 1666.  

There was a separate Biggs family in Massachusetts -- daughters of a John Boggs.  Rachel came over in 1635.  But her father John had died in England.  

This Virginia man seems to be someone else entirely and should have not a PGM but U S Southern Colonies template.
