Scotland, Ireland, Wales
We know that there were Applebys in Scotland and Ireland in the last few centuries, though I'm not sure about Wales ... but whether they originated in those countries or migrated there from England remains to be discovered!
Perhaps our DNA programme will provide some answers?
There is evidence from early parish records and census data that there were Applebys in Scotland from the 1600s onwards. So far, we only have one Scottish Appleby tree, and in fact we know that this particular line originally came from Ireland.
If you belong to a line of Scottish Applebys, do please get in touch so that we can add your famiy tree to the website.
Applebys of Kirkcaldy, Scotland - although we know that this line originated in Ireland, they lived for a number of generations in the Kirkcaldy area of Fife.
Scottish census data and BMD records are available in the Members' Resources area.
There seem to be a number of Applebys in Ireland - further research is necessary to discover which parts of the country they were living and whether their origins are in Ireland or if they arrived from elsewhere. However, we have recently added a very large tree for APPELBEs living in Cork.
Alexander Appelbe of Cork - this large family is descended from Alexander who was born in around 1725 and was a 'linnen weaver'. Family stories suggest that he was a Huguenot or Walloon descendant, but more evidence is still needed to prove these connections.William Appleby of Pennsylvania - we know that William and his brothers sailed from Northern Ireland to America in the 1770s - but it is now looking as if the line did NOT originate in Ireland. We have DNA evidence that this line shares a common ancestor with Applebys from Northumberland.
If YOUR Appleby ancestors came from Ireland, please do send us details, so that we can add your Irish Appleby tree to this page.
The Members' Resource area now includes census and other information for Ireland, and I am currently putting together some births, marriages and deaths.
