Family Tree #1 – Baglin/Jenner Branch

WELCOME

Welcome to the Baglin/Jenner Branch of the Nathanville Pedigree Family Tree (Family Tree #1). This section of our family tree (more like a bush) with many of the side shoots, twigs and twiglets is my side of the family line and as well as thousands of other surnames includes significant numbers of Babb, Bick, Burford, Chappell, Cook, Davis, England, Fry, Greenman, Harris, Hewson, King, Loyns, Nippress, Oaten, Price, Russ, Rutter, Sellar, Sherwood, Stickler and Tudor. Use the Name Index in the side menu bar to explore the full list. This is one half of our interactive and dynamic graphical family tree (pedigree chart). Family Tree#2 is my wife's side of family tree and the Nathanville Pedigree Family Tree Index the full combined and interactive index (complete with full details of relationships, dates and events) for both trees.

 

RESEARCH NOTES

The genealogy research on this site is ‘work in progress’, and therefore subject to change as new data is discovered and records are modified to correct errors and omissions; and to add missing information.  We do a lot of the research ourselves and collaborate with other fellow researchers; many of whom are kind enough to make their contribution to this site. Unlike many private genealogy websites we aim to provide a full and free access for all; the only information which is kept private is personal information for individuals on this family tree who may still be alive.

 

HOW TO USE THIS SITE

A detailed checklist on how to best use this site, and get the most from it, is given on our 'Site Search' page which provides a checklist of advice and tips on how to best use other parts of this genealogy website for researching your family history; including family photos, learning more about the Victorian era through snippets from Victorian newspapers saved by my great-great grandfather in his scrapbook, and external links to other free genealogy resources. Use the SiteWise link in the side menu bar above for access to these and other useful family history and genealogy research pages.

 

RESHAPING THE FAMILY TREE

The original family tree database was lost along with the main backup, but after two years hard slog, mainly thanks to my wife's help, those records have now been faithfully reproduced in this new and dynamic tree from other backup records; excepting the resources which we were unable to match backup with our records. During this period of restoration my wife also extensively researched her own family tree, expanding on the modest work I'd previously done for her. As her family tree is now as large as mine in republishing we've split the main tree into two, each reflecting our two sides of the family.

 

ENGLISH ROOTS MY SON

If your ancestors are English then your origin (Northern or Southern England) may well be in your surname. We all know about Mc and Mac (son of) in the Irish and Scottish clans. Now, according to Leicester University researchers, an English person's geographical roots are revealed by the end of their surname.

Surnames ending in 'son' indicate northern English roots while surnames with an 's' at the end suggests a southern ancestry e.g. Williamson and Robertson are historically of Northern origin while Williams, Roberts and Russ are of southern origin - Nearly 60% of northerners in villages like Crosby Ranvensworth in Cumbria had 'son' surnames in the 17th century, and Russ at that time was firmly rooted in Somerset.
