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.

Adam Appleby of Easby

Originally, we thought that the Easby which Adam gave as his birthplace in the censuses was the Easby near Stokesley in North Yorkshire.  Then we realised that given the other places mentioned by family members, it was more likely to have been Easby by Richmond - the site of the historic Easby Abbey on the banks of the River Swale.

 

We have not managed to find any record for Adam's christening, but he obligingly remarried late in life (after the introduction of General Registration) and this marriage certificate revealed that he was the son of a Robert Appleby labourer.

Adam could be connected to the line of William Appleby of Kirby Fleetham - also close to Richmond.  This seems very likely as there are a number of children with the same names in Adam's family as appeared in the line of William of Kirkby Fleetham.

 

Our research was complicated by the fact that two of Adam's sons married the same woman - and she had children with both of them as well as another son from an earlier marriage.  To make it clearer, here is a chart showing Elizabeth Johnson's three marriages and the children from each of them.

 

We have a set of yDNA results for a descendant of this line (from the branch of Adam's son Christopher Appleby, which show that the line shares a common ancestor with a number of other Appleby lines - see NORTHERN Group TWO in the latest DNA results.  However, it is likely  that there are a number of living Appleby descendants from the branch of Christopher's younger brother William - please do get in touch if you can provide any further details about this line.
