A genealogy of Jones, Orme, Bird, Allen, Waite, Hainsworth, Butler, Rees and other families.

This is the results of my attempt to trace my family history. Much of it is the work of others or the knowledge of my relatives.

For my own purposes, I've created a table showing how many genes shared with 1st to 7th degree relatives. The table has an introduction in which I discuss the implications of this table on genealogy.

Here is a partial draft of a transcription of the 1680 to 1809 Parish Records for Scropton, Derbyshire which are not on the IGI. I will update and correct this page on a regular basis:
Scropton Parish Records, 1680 to 1809

Here are some transcriptions of the 1836+ series of Tithe Maps & Apportionments (indexes to the maps), which show who occupied which fields and dwellings within each township. I've written a java-based Tithe Map Viewer which should make the maps much quicker and easier to view but you can also download them from the following pages:

Tithe maps & apportionments in development or planning: Longford, Trusley, Burton-upon-Trent, Burton Extra, Marchington, Marchington Woodlands, Marston Montgomery, Anslow, Rolleston, Horninglow, Dalbury, Church Broughton, Sudbury and Middleton. Sadly there are no tithe maps for Hatton or Hilton although a good proportion of Hatton is available under Church Broughton.

Here is some analysis I've done on some of the surnames of my ancestors.

The following charts show who my dead ancestors and relatives were. I am less certain about some of the people on the fringes than I am of the central characters. It's been a lot harder to find out about my Welsh ancestors than my English ones. To an extent, this has been because there are so few Welsh surnames shared by so many people. The result is that, despite the fact that I am half-english and half-welsh, the majority of people on these charts are english.

I would love to make contact with any distant relatives and have any mistakes corrected. My contact info is at the bottom of the page.
