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.

John Appleby, stonemason of Acklington

According to census data, John Appleby was born in Acklington in around 1790 - he was a stonemason journeyman.  However his sons and grandsons were brick and tile manufacturers - moving around various Northumberland Tileries, including Belsay, Ellington, Ogle, Black Heddon, Wingate and Bothal Park.

Acklington Applebys, but we need to access more parish records to establish where the connection might lie.

 

I am grateful to Janine and John for providing information about this line.

We have some yDNA tests for this line - and I am pleased to report that they are an excellent match to an Appleby descendant from the main Acklington line, so it is looking as if all the Acklington lines share a common ancestor.
