Genealogical data is constantly updated. Revisions may cause some pages to change web address.
I have been researching my family tree for more than 25 years. I have built, not only data of my direct ancestors but also developed many branches of other relations. So here’s the story so far.
There are currently 1,840 individuals on this database.
You can use the ‘Search’ on the right of this page or take a look through this index that will provide data, trees and resources. You can contact me about this data here.
Branches of my direct family are here:
The Waugh’s of Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Devon
These are my direct Waugh ancestors stretching back to the 17th century in England and then, hopefully, beyond in Scotland.
John Waugh (1771-1802) was born and died in Bristol, in 1795 he married Hester Evans, born in Bristol in 1775. They had two sons and a daughter – John Waugh (1796-1888), Robert Waugh (1798-1883) and Elisabeth Waugh (1800-1801). John’s father, my 5x great-grandfather, had the same name and lived for a while, at least, in Bristol with John senior’s brother, Robert.
My grandfather, Albert Edwin Waugh (1894-1975), told me on more than one occasion that our branch of the Waugh family originated from Dingwall, Ross and Cromarty. I have not yet been able to tie the family in the West of England in the 17th-18th century to those in Scotland. I have created a few tentative links over the years – but I won’t publish any detail until I can positively verify the connection. I do however believe that John Waugh senior is that link. If you have any information please contact me.
As you can see above I have extensively researched many branches of my family and created data in relation to my blood relatives and those they married.
