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.

Robert Appleby of Eryholme, Yorkshire

and descendants at Thornaby-on-Tees

NAME INDEX

Colin has been researching his family history for many years and you can read more about this Appleby line, as well as history of Thornaby-on-Tees and Eryholme on Colin's own website

 

This tree begins with Robert of Eryholme, who was probably born at Welbury or Kirkby Fleetham.

 

UPDATE!  Since adding this tree to the website, we have been contacted by another descendant of this line, whose family emigrated to Canada.  The chart has now been updated to include this branch.

 

We have also discovered through our DNA testing programme that this line, along with several others, is linked to the much older line of Henry Appleby of Kirkby Malzeard.  We still need to locate the documentary evidence to explain where all the connections between these lines lie, but believe that the Eryholme, and Easby lines both connect to the Kirkby Fleetham line.

Card 6a 4 Dec 1903 Mandale Road Thornaby

This postcard showing Thornaby in 1903 was posted by a small boy to his Aunt in Scotland before the Great War - after the Aunt's death her daughter found a box of postcards in the attic and returned them to the family - providing much information about long lost relatives to the family of that small boy, who happened to be living in Thornaby 100 years later!

 

Perhaps YOU have got a box of postcards and letters lurking in your attic?
