The main names I am researching in the next few months are SADLER/SADDLER, OXBURY/OXBOROUGH/OXBURGH and variants, WYATT, WINCHESTER and HEATH.
If visiting for the first time please browse the Surname Index list. I have a seperate page now for the HEATHS as the tree is getting so big. This is at genealogy.com called "The HEATHS of Lincolnshire and Cleveland, England". Our branch of HEATHs come from the Barnetby Le Wold part of Lincs. I have only recently discovered where my husband's male line comes from so work is still progressing on this.
Our SADLER branch originates in Osmotherly, Yorkshire with David and Ann SADLER nee KAYE who married there in April 1777.
The WYATT branch with the WINCHESTER comes from London with my Great Grand Father, Henry SEYMORE WYATT being born in Bethnal Green in 1860. He married Julia WINCHESTER who was born in Godstone, Surrey in 1854. For some reason they moved with the whole family to Guisborough in Yorkshire in around 1901 and took Julia's maiden name as their married name. Or maybe they were just known to their Grand children as "WINCHESTER" being a pet name? We don't know!!!
I now have onboard another OXBURY researcher, Denis HARDY who is also researching the HEMPSON family. I have added photo's of his OXBURY link, Walter and Gertrude OXBURY nee HEMPSON.
I will be adding more related links soon and a new update of our tree.
Below you can browse photograghs of family past and present.
Many thanks to my cousin Geoff who is the transcriber of this information. Also thanks for help from Madalyn who supplied data for the WYATT/WINCHESTER branch. I have recently updated but had to leave a lot of the family names off the lists. If you think you may have a connection then please do get in touch via my email address please?
My dear Dad passed away in hospital recently and we miss him so much. He was a kind gentle man and he never had a bad word to say about anyone. His kindness and goodness will live in our hearts for the rest of our lives along with the many happy memories we have of him.
