Surname Files

This page contains a set links to files on ancestral surnames that I am researching. It is not a list the surnames that appear on this web site. Such a list would be much, MUCH longer.

I am currently in the process converting the charts into html format with considerably more detail & information, background information on the localities and graphics, This will, course, be a very lengthy process. In most cases, a limited one-name study will be performed: In Australia that means researching all families sharing the surname in either the district, the state or nationally (depending on how common the surname is). In the UK & Ireland (all of my lines come from the British Isles), that means either a parish/city or county-wide study, again depending on how common the surname is. Apart from making this site useful to more researchers, the primary purpose is to establish whether or not other references to the surname are related or not. Photographs etc are not included for unrelated lines. Note that some these charts are quite sizable, many being over 1M, including graphics. The "Mark II" charts are noted below with the comment "HTML Format".

Research presented using the older format is in text file format with full details on my direct line (in the 'line chart') and a one-line summary on individuals in side lines (in the 'tree chart'). Relevant links and a list of those researching that surname are given in the individual index page for that surname. Essays ave been written on some lines and they can be found via that surname index page. Unless it is critical, these charts are no longer being updated and will eventually be replaced by html versions, as above.

Please note that all dates are in English format, that is: day/month/year. Some dates using the old English (Julian) calendar are expressed in the format: day/month/year1-year2 - the Julian calendar year started on 'Lady Day', 25th March. A date in January would thus be expressed as 15/1/1729-1730. Any further information on any the people listed in the above files would be gratefully received. Where only one generation is known for a particular surname (ie: "lost wives"), only that generation is given in the file, such files are denoted by a "(P)" below, signifying they are "point files". Hopefully this status is only temporary.

As these charts are being rewritten in html format "District Pages" (counties, states etc) are being added, where relevant. In addition to links to the various surname charts I have researched from these districts, the pages also contain background information on the district, maps and a description of useful resources (online and otherwise) when researching in these districts. District pages currently online are:
