This site presents the results of over 20 years of research into my family's story. Inspired by my father's research, I've now identified well over 6,000 relatives going back 17 generations.
My roots are almost all in England; the only known exception being my 4x great grandfather - a "travelling Scotchman" - who had joined the British Army in 1784. But some of my extended family did emigrate, and there are family members in Australia, Canada, the US, South Africa and beyond.
Due to data protection precautions, any information on living people (or those born less than 100 years ago who might be alive) has not been uploaded. These people are all shown in family trees as "A Private Individual". To locate yourself, find a known ancestor and work down their descendancy tree.
I can be contacted with questions, new information or corrections. I look forward to hearing from you.
