I have tried to make this site simple to navigate. The menu bar across the top of the page appears on all pages, so if you get lost within the site, just click the "Home" button and it will take you to the front page. When searching the surname list down the left-hand side, and the Alphabetic Index disappears, hover over the "Indexes" button on the main menu bar and, on the drop-down menu, clicking on the "Surname Index" button will bring the Index back to the top of the column. 


Most words that are printed in colour are links to another page (except the ones in this paragraph!) That means that a linked name from a person's page will take you to more information about the linked person. Clicking on a linked place-name will show a list of all people associated with that place. A linked word or phrase on one page will take you to another page with another article, a picture or both, on the subject mentioned. Use your back button or back arrow to return to the previous page. 


In the Image Gallery all photos are links to the person's page. Click on an image and you will be taken to that person's page. Click on the little window on the top-right corner to enlarge the picture in the current page. 


English births, deaths, and marriage dates are, in most cases, approximate. The English GRO record their dates quarterly so, if a date is recorded as say, circa March 1876, the event could have occurred in January, February or March of that year; similarly with June, September and December quarters. Some of the pre-1837 birth dates may be christening dates. Where I have found only a christening date in many cases I have inserted the year as the birth date. In reality, because of the infant mortality rate, most christenings happened within a few days of birth, although I have found one instance when the father was baptized at the same time as his first child and, in other cases, siblings have been christened at the same time, so those dates and ages should be considered approximate.
