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.

Following the discovery of details of Barnard Castle parish records, this family tree has been amended.  We now believe that the line for George Walton Appleby is a part of this line. However, so far, that is the only branch which we have been able to follow into the 20th century.
