Research over the last forty
years into our family history has taken us back to the 1700s/1800s in
the English counties of
and Sussex. We were surprised to find that
with the exception of Somerset, Suffolk and Surrey we both had ancestors from
the same counties of England. At present all of our overseas connections
are in Australia and, perhaps surprisingly, we have no connections with the USA where
hundreds of thousands of people from the UK emigrated to since the Pilgrim Fathers left
from Plymouth in 1620.
On each county page we will list
the towns and villages and some details of the places where families lived.
These details are mainly from the 1841 to 1911 census records, but we hope to add
further details of these places to add interest.
When the county names are
changed to Blue
then they will have the necessary links to connect to the appropriate pages.
Please note this page is still under construction.
