Family History

This site contains information about a number of families whose origins we are researching in the British Isles. Some we know more about than others, but we hope that by publishing our family trees here we can make contact and exchange data with people who can help to complete the picture. Most of the families whose details appear on these pages are those for which we think we have established a clear line of descent, however short. Our on-line family trees are organised into two sets of pages: the main surname pages which give a summary of each family, and detailed pages which provide more data about individuals.

The surnames we are researching are listed below, first in alphabetical order and then by county of origin. Each surname is linked to a page which lists all the relatives we have identified, together with the date and place of their birth, marriage and death. Most of these surname pages are linked to the corresponding detailed records for members of that family. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. We use the most common spelling of each surname throughout (other spellings which we have found are noted on the appropriate page).

*A few of the surnames listed here have only a brief summary page. These relate to families where our research is in its early stages or where we have been able to find out very little, for example where early records have not survived. These names (or the places where our information is sketchy) are marked with an asterisk in the lists below. The link below takes you to a page which summarises what we know about this family and what we want to find out. Each of these summary pages covers a number of families in Devon, Norfolk and Ireland.

A separate page contains a list, in alphabetical order, of the people covered by this web site. Listed here are the main people of interest from the families we are researching. This page provides direct links to the detailed pages for the named individuals. We also provide a full explanation of the structure and contents of our on-line family trees, what information they hold and how this information is presented.

Except where otherwise indicated, the contents and design of these pages are copyright © Chris Warren 1999 to 2024. You are welcome to take a copy for personal use only in researching your own family history. Our contact details are provided if you can help with our research or if you would like us to add details of any related family members who are not currently covered.
