Joint Family 1916GENEALOGY (18,500+ Names)
Family History Research is a full and comprehensive searchable Family Tree database now dating back to the Norman Conquest of 1066 in places e.g. Mauger Le Vavasour (1060-1086); albeit a link to our main pedigree through marriage on my wife's side. The full family tree includes over 18,000 people in 5570 families (either related by blood or marriage). Below are links to the two sides of our genealogy family tree presented in a new graphical format which includes pedigree charts for individual families.

Family Tree #1 - My side of the family tree (Family Tree #1) is most prominently in and around the Bristol area in South West England and in Wales and currently the most prominent surnames includes : Babb, Baglin, Bick, Burford, Chappell, Cook, Davis, England, Fry, Greenman, Harris, Hewson, Jenner, King, Loyns, Nippress, Oaten, Price, Russ, Rutter, Sellar, Sherwood, Stickler and Tudor.

Family Tree #2 - While my wife's family line is mostly in the Essex area and Northern England on her mother's side and Northern Ireland on her father's side, and currently the most prominent surnames on her tree are: Aldous, Allinson, Baines, Bracegirdle, Browne, Butcher, Clymo, Cornish, Ewbank, Fisher, Fiske, Greenling, Greenwood, Henwood, Howard, Hurren, Kettle, Mutter, Prestney, Relton, Vavasour, Vercoe and Watkinson.

Full Family Tree Index - As well as the two above family trees, each with their own index we've also combined the two trees to provide a full and comprehensive searchable index, complete with interactive links to family members with BMD and other major timeline events. This index is in the older, but still extremely useful, genealogy family tree database format.

Other Useful Research Tools - On Nathanville Genealogy we have a growing wealth of Family History and family documents, mostly in the Victorian period; and a growing library of family history photos from late Victorian to modern times. Below are links to these main resources:
