Jabez (Biggun) Smith: and Denny Smith were Wiggy’s uncles, two of his father’s brothers.  Peter Shepheard, an ex-Stroud lad, returned home for a few weeks in 1967 and met and recorded several members of Gloucester’s Brazil family of Gypsies.  Danny Brazil introduced him to Biggun Smith at Beachley Ferry.  Biggun was recognised by the travellers in the Gloucester area as a good singer.
