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.

Cramlington Applebys, coal miners from Northumberland

We have taken this line back with certainty to Thomas and Isabella Appleby who married in around 1821.  In the 1851 census, Thomas said he was born in Crawcrook in about 1798 and Isabella in Newburn in about 1795 - both villages were located to the west of Newcastle upon Tyne. We believe Thomas was a son of Henry Appleby and Isabella Middleton who married in 1787 and that Henry was the eldest son of Thomas Appleby and Mary Smith who belong to the Corbridge line of Applebys.

But from the birth places of their children,  Thomas and Isabella must have spent some time in Felling, Co Durham before settling in Cramlington by the time of the 1841 census. A number of Thomas's sons and grandsons were banksmen at the High Pit Colliery in Cramlington, and most of the family seem to have remained in the area, working at the mines in either Cramlington or Ashington right through to the 1911 census.  However Thomas's youngest son, Joseph, became an engine fitter and following his marriage he moved to York and his sons were farming in Cheshire in 1911.

 

If this is YOUR line of Applebys, do please get in touch and tell us more about your own branch.  We now have a set of yDNA results for a descendant of this line - and they fit neatly into NORTHERN GROUP TWO.  We are fairly confident that we have found the link between Thomas (b 1798 Crawcrook) and the John Appleby exciseman of Corbridge line
