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.

Thousands of Applebys have served in the armed forces over the past few centuries (most of them in the two world wars), with many dying for King and Country.


Below is a timeline of all known Applebys mentioned in available military records, beginning with the Battle of Waterloo (1815) and ending in World War II (1939-1945).


Records in red are coming soon.

All surnames are spelt Appleby unless otherwise stated.


I am grateful to Craig for putting all this information together - if you would like to submit additional information, please use the Contact Form at the left.

Battle of Waterloo (1815)

The only Appleby mentioned in the Waterloo Medal Roll of 1815 is Private Robert Appleby, who served in Captain C. Ellis's Company of the 1st Battalion of the 40th Regiment of Foot. You can read more about Robert Appleby on this page of the website

Dominion Geordies in WW1

This project aims to research the war service of emigrants from the North East of England who served in Dominion Forces in the Great War.  Member Joe has undertaken extensive research on ten Appleby soldiers (all born in NE England) who served in Australian and Canadian units.

Read Joe's detailed reports here - they were written for the project website (see left) but it is no longer available.  So I will include the reports about the individual soldiers on the relevant family page.
