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.

Richard Appleby carpenter of St Pancras, London

Richard Appleby, carpenter of St Pancras - unfortunately, the only census in which Richard appears is 1841 - at which point he was aged 42 years, born in the county, a carpenter, married to Ann and living in Scalesbury Place in St Pancras.  He had died by the time of the 1851 census, so I don't know where to search for his birth.  


If he is in YOUR family tree, I should be most grateful if you can tell me more about his origins.
