The current banner shows Alnwick Castle, in Northumberland - a county in the far north east of England, bordering Scotland.  This region is home to a number of Appleby lines - and our DNA project has confirmed genetic connections between several of these, which also match lines in Canada, USA and Ireland.

Applebys of Kingsdon, Somerset

Emanuel Appleby and Love Ludwell married in 1785 in Kingsdon, Somerset. Emanuel was a baker.  We only know of two children of this marriage: William born in 1786 and John born in 1796.  


Both Emanuel and Love died when their son John was an infant, and as a result John was brought up in Lovington, perhaps by relatives?  Emanuel's elder son William was also a baker.


We know that William's son William Walton Appleby, and two of his sisters and their families, emigrated to Tasmania in the mid-1800s.

family of William and Eleanor

The family of William Walton Appleby and his wife Eleanor (Walker)

We have recently expanded this tree to include descendants of William's younger brother John Appleby and his wife Elizabeth.  It seems very likely that there are living descendants of this branch, so if you recognise your grandparents on the family tree, I would be pleased to hear from you.


Further study of Appleby/bees in Somerset is also indicating that there could be more branches to this tree, linked to William and Johns father Emanuel.  More Somerset trees will be added to the website very soon.


Anyone who is connected to this line of APPLEBYs and lives in Tasmania, should definitely take a look at this website where you may well find out more about your family history.

Descendants of Emanuel Appleby and Love Ludwell

We have a set of DNA test results from the Australian branch of this line, and it would be good to learn if any members of this line remained in the UK so that we could try to find a living Appleby to take a DNA test to compare with our Australian volunteer.
