Welcome to my family tree 🙂
I set this site up as a permanent record of the research I have done into the history of my family. I began my research with my grandparents, their surnames and locations are RYLANDS, Liverpool; OWENS, Yorkshire; GILBY and LUCAS, Warwickshire.
If you recognise any of the names posted on this site and think we may be connected in some way I would love to hear from you, so either leave a comment on the relevant post, or drop me a line using the form on the contact page.
my surnames: anderson, angrave, bocking, clay, conroy, clements, clifton, dick, duffield, evans, fuller, gilby, gillingham, haggis, hanford/handford, holmes, jackson, linthwaite, lucas, morrison, mason, mcshane/macshane, owens, parmenter, pugh, reason, runham/renham, rylands, steel, toder, wayne, wright (this list is not complete, more names are available in the menu in the dropdown menu at the top of the blog, others will be added in the future)
areas: england – cheshire, cambridgeshire, cornwall, derbyshire, essex, lancashire, leicestershire, lincolnshire, nottinghamshire, staffordshire, warwickshire, yorkshire (east and west ridings); ireland – counties tyrone, antrim and down; scotland – midlothian, west lothian and stirlingshire; wales – denbigh
For reasons of space I have not added all information about each individual, I have also omitted sources. If you recognise anyone listed here, don’t hesitate to get in touch, I will be happy to share what I know. You can also view my full family tree here including names, dates, events, locations, some occupations and biographical info.
You will also find information, tips and ideas which should (hopefully) be useful to family historians generally, as well as a list of resources under the Useful Links menus at the top of the page, which are sites and services I have used and found to be helpful.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and don’t be afraid to leave a comment, or ask a question – there is no such thing as silly question, simply one you don’t yet know the answer to.
