Web Design

Over the years, with the help of many correspondents and relatives I have compiled  histories for several of the family branches from which I and my children are descended.

Some of these have been published in booklet form and distributed, much remains in files and boxes on my shelves and computers.

I finally thought that it was time that I shared this information with a wider audience - many of whom will find it of direct relevance.


Please feel free to browse and if you have any amendments, corrections, additions or comments, please let me know.
