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.

Henry Appleby engraver of Islington

Henry Appleby was born in Holborn in around 1802, but I have not yet found his birth record.  The family moved to Islington and later generations lived in the Camberwell area south of the river.


Although Henry and his wife Mary Ann had three sons who were all engravers at some time, it looks as if only one of them married and he only had one son who died in childhood - so this family seems to have 'daughtered out' within four generations. But if you have any information about recent generations, I would be most interested to hear from you!

London Plan 1815

"London" copper engraved plan with a small amount of original hand colouring, published in Encyclopaedia Londinensis, 1815. An interesting and detailed plan, with such areas as Walworth, Islington, Oxford Street, Limehouse and Chelsea all being on the edge of or outside London.
