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.

Bridge over the River Tyne, Corbridge for NY9864

The bridge was completed in 1674, replacing the ford and ferry which succeeded a previous medieval bridge of 1235. It is 146 metres long, with seven arches. Originally built for pack-horse and coach traffic, it and was partially rebuilt and widened in 1881

This tree was submitted by Joe, who has traced the line back to John Appleby, an exciseman in Corbridge and his wife Mary.  He has tracked all descendants of this couple, some up to the present day, with much assistance from distant cousins in England, Norway and New Zealand.  Some descendants of this line emigrated to Pennsylvania. We are still uncertain about the parentage of John, and whether he was actually born in Northumberland or in Durham.

 

Coincidentally, this is Joe's wife's line - his own Appleby ancestor through his mother is John Appleby, of Kelloe - and though both lines have their roots in Northumberland, the uniting marriage took place in the USA!  (So far, Joe has not managed to find a link further up the tree, but we do now know the two lines DO share a common ancestor through DNA testing). You can read some more info from Joe here

 

We have also received further details about members of this line from Neil and Alan.  There must be many more descendants living in both England and the USA - we should love to hear from you with any further information.

 

The tree has been divided up into three separate charts, for ease of viewing:

We now know through DNA testing that this Corbridge line and that of John of Kelloe both fall into NORTHERN GROUP TWO.  These two lines seem to be closely related to that of William of Framwellgate and slightly more distantly to the lines from Barningham, Kirkby Malzeard and Leeds.  I would be keen to test a descendant from the branch of Thomas and Thomason - please contact me if you are a male Appleby from that branch.

 

yDNA results have also confirmed that the Wylam Applebys are definitely another branch of the Corbridge line.  And although we don't have any DNA results to confirm it, there is almost certainly a connection to the Hyons Wood line.

We recently linked a new line to this tree ... see the page for Jonathan Kidd Appleby of Gateshead and Egypt.
