The genealogical data in these pages is accurate to the best of my current (at the time of writing) knowledge. This means it is of very variable reliability, since sources at one extreme are 100% certain (e.g. I know who I married, where and when, and the identity of my parents) to the mere rumour level, such as LDS data extracted from the IGI and Ancestral File, and reminiscences of elderly relatives, some now deceased. Anyone wishing to make any use whatever of this information is therefore strongly advised to contact me for source details.
Some of the genealogy pages on this site contain Little or no data at present. To save you frustration I have marked links to such pages with the symbol . Such pages do, however, always provide a means for you to obtain an automatic email when I do put something potentially useful on it, so you may well feel it is still worth following the link - that's why it's there.
The surnames included are: A'COURT, ADAMS, BARNES, BELLOWES, BERIMAN, BOLTON, BRIDGES, BROWN, BUGLE, CAMMELL, CHERRETT, CHURCHOUSE, COLLIER, DORREL, DREW, DYE, EDES, FISHER, FOX, FRY, GERRARD, GRIFFITH(S)/GRUFFYTH, HANCOCK, HARRIS, HEMSON, HILL, JASPER, JEFFERIES, KING, LACY, LILLINGTON, LONGFORD, MABELL, MALL, MORGAN, NAILER, NIBLETT, PRINCE, REED, RIPPINGALE, SAY, SEYMOUR, TOWNSEND, VALENTINE, WARREN, WEST, WHITTLE, WILLS, WOODSFORD mostly in Dorset and Wiltshire, but with a few entries in Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, London (formerly Middlesex and Surrey), Montgomeryshire and Norfolk.
Where there is a link from a name it is to a page of biographical details about all the people with that surname in my family tree, including a few who are not direct ancestors. The amount of such detail varies considerably. I will add others as time permits.
Any ideas or relevant information would be very welcome.
The surnames included are: ARCHER, ASHTON, ATHEIS/ATHERS, BADGER, BAKER, BALL, BATE, COLE, COTTERILL, DICKISSON, DUKE, GLAZZARD, HARDY, HOPKINSON, HUTCHINSON, JARVIS, JONES, JUKES, LANGLEY, MARSH, PEARSON, RIPPON, SHAW, SILK, SMITH, STONE, TINSLEY, TRUMAN, WARD, WATTERS, WILCOX, WILLETTS and WOODHOUSE, mostly in Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire but with one entry in Derbyshire and three in Yorkshire.
The pages on Derbyshire, Hampshire, London, Norfolk and Nottinghamshire, while not empty of content, still have large gaps awaiting completion and are much inferior at present compared with those for Dorset, Staffordshire and Wiltshire.
I have set up a separate page giving a full list of all the counties, towns and villages included.
