Looking for HUGGINS, BLAGDON & a few others

am trying to trace family tree. starting with my dad - John Huggins born 1932 in Milbrook, Cornwall. his father was Fred Huggins born around 1890-1900 in Plymouth, Devon. He married Amelia Kate Blagdon born around 1911 in Milbrook, Cornwall. My dad doesnt know a lot about his father but i do have some info about his mums side. My dad does have brothers/sisters still in the u.k not all of them are still living however and as i am in South Australia it is a little difficult for me to research some things in that part of the world. If anybody thinks they may know anything, then any info would be greatly appreciated.
thanx sam.

Re: Looking for HUGGINS, BLAGDON & a few others

can you tell me where the Blagdon comes from. my great grandfather was Henry Blagdon Abbott, born 1830. His parents were Henry Abbott and Marie Trandle. I figure the Blagdon has to be a family name, probably a female Blagdon has married and passed onto a son as a middle name. I'm in Western Australia.
