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.

Nathaniel Appleby of Langenhoe

Starting with a tree for Moses Appleby, born in 1782 in Langenhoe, and with the help of Miriam who is descended from Josiah Appleby one of Moses Appleby's great grandsons, I have managed to trace this family back to Nathaniel Appleby, who was a shopkeeper in Langenhoe until his death in 1830.  Nathaniel was born around 1759 and married to Lucy - they had twelve children, all baptised in Langenhoe. After Lucy's death, Nathaniel married Ann Gilby, with whom he had a further three children.  Nathaniel's Will revealed that I had made some crucial errors in my first draft of this family tree! - these have now been corrected.

 

I have also received information from Peter, who is descended from Nathaniel, a younger brother of Moses Appleby.  Peter also kindly provided the photos of his great grandparents, Nathaniel (1839-1904) and his wife Rosina May seen below.

This family seems to have remained clustered around Langenhoe, Fingringhoe and Abberton for several generations.  However, during the 1870s, several of Nathaniel's great great

grandsons moved in to the Eastern fringes of London and settled in West Ham, Canning Town and Forest Gate.  

 

It is likely that there are a number of descendants of this line still living today.  If you belong to this family, I should be delighted to hear about your more recent family history - especially if you can provide any family photographs or stories to include on this website.

 

Our DNA Testing Programme has recently established that this line is connected with one of the nearby Layer de la Haye lines (and in fact, David Appleby married Mary Ann Baker  in 1881, who was a granddaughter of William and Hannah Appleby of Layer de la Haye),  and also to that of George Appleby of Ardleigh.

 

More testers for other Essex lines are very welcome - please contact me using the link to the Contact form above left, to discover if you qualify for a subsidised DNA test kit.

You can read more about the history of Langenhoe, and its place in the record books as the location of the strongest earthquake ever to hit England (in 1884) at the History House website.  There is also a report concerning the earthquake at the British Geological Survey website.
