FAMILY PAGES OF

JOHN STUART AND VALERIE FRENCH

 

Hello, welcome to our family website!! My name is Valerie and I am the genealogist for both our trees. Our daughter Laura started the research for our STUART tree in January 2003, and motivated me into researching my FRENCH tree soon after that.

An unexpected bonus of our research has been finding distant cousins on both sides of the family. As well as the pleasure of meeting them in person and over the internet, we have been lucky in that all concerned have been very generous in sharing their information.

 

 

The Stuart family

John's family come from Aberdeenshire in Scotland. His grandparents were George Meldrum Stuart and Hellen Fowlie on his father's side, and William Young Wilson and Georgina Davie on his mother's side. Our daughter Laura constructed the basic tree, and I have added details as I found them in my researches. Laura and I have used Scotlands People for the data before 1901, together with information from correspondents on the web and recollections of relatives. Although we have been fairly meticulous (I think), we are aware there could be errors in this data. We would be glad to receive any corrections, and we would be delighted if anyone with a possible connection would contact us through the email address at the foot of this page !!

I have a page for each of John's grandparents (see the navigation buttons on the left).

 

I haven't room here for all the names mentioned in this tree so please use the search engine near the foot of this page if you have family names from Scotland, particularly Aberdeenshire.

 

 

The French family

Most of my family come from the south of England, including London, with the exception of the Turnbull family from Northumberland. My grandparents were Arthur French and Catharine Shelley on my father's side, and Arthur Riseley and Susan Corney on my mother's side. Information has come from censuses, the IGI, Access to Archives documents, Wills and recollections from relatives. Some of my family lines are so convoluted that I decided to include only the earliest line in this website, and if anyone has a possible connection then please contact me !! My email address is at the foot of this page.
