About this section

This section contains more than 540 narrative pedigrees, which have been assembled over many years by Martyn and Sheila, and by a number of other researchers as acknowledged. There is a comprehensive Index to the people included.

More information about the dated events referred to can be found in the searchable tables under the ‘Births, Marriages, Deaths’ section and by following any links provided in the pedigrees. Before adding any information to your own records or to an online tree, please use the Contact Us page to confirm the details with us to make sure that they are accurate in the context of your enquiry.

The pages in this section should not include information about people who are still living – please Contact Us if you find an instance where this guidance has not been followed, so that we can amend the text.

If you can help by providing information about any of the people or family lines shown – or by responding to the research notes that appear in italics on many pages – please use the Contact Us page. Please tell us about other lines you would like to see included, or about lines you need help with tracing.

Place names are in the English counties of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset or Wiltshire unless stated otherwise.
