Welcome to my World : Genealogy is not all about how far back you can go (Pedigree) but the Relationships and Tales that emerge over generations, to bring History to Life;
I am sharing here my evidence based findings on the life and times of some remarkable craftsmen and their womenfolk, not only with my own family (in UK, Canada and Taiwan) but also with others searching these Lines, or indeed anyone with an interest in the social and historic backdrop of craftsmen and farmers working particularly in Kent or Midlands.
THE STORY SO FAR :
First, I covered my maternal grandfather’s MORRIS Line, stretching back to the 17th century Civil War covering 8 generations including Stanley G Morris, below:-
- published between march 2018 and 2nd May 2020.
Secondly, 6 generations of my paternal grandfather’s BLIGH Line, including many craftsmen from the wider family the North East Kent BLIGHS, – below:-
- first 27th March 2018, but mainly between August 6th 2020 to July 24th 2021.
THE NEXT CHALLENGE :
The BRADLEY and NOTT ADAMS Lines;
My maternal grandmother’s complicated genealogy; teasing out a tangled pedigree, working out family ties, disputes and reunions and involving the female lines.
KEY Names include
BRADLEY (wheelwrights) and MILLETT (Blacksmiths),
NOTT and ADAMS, Teme Valley farmers
WHEELER and HYDE
Fourthly, On Hold: The BARRY: Farmers of Broomfield. (Midleton) Co. Cork.
I do hope I do them all justice!
