Welcome to The Knight Family Tree.
The Knight family traces back to the early 1800s and our research shows the origins of
the Knights have always been Essex. Throughout the 1900s the family gradually spread
all over the world with the earliest record of a Knight moving overseas being 1919 when

I believe the number of documents and photos located on this site makes it quite unique
as, unlike other family history sites it isn't just a list of names. I have, where
possible, included not only census returns but other documents to try a show to the
best of my knowledge the information is correct. These documents include birth
marriage and death certificates, military and employment records, school reports,
baptism certificates and even DNA records. The documents have been indexed in a simple
way to follow through the photographic section. For ease of viewing select "Photos"
from the bar at the top of the site and then from the drop down menu select
"Slideshow". Now from the album menu select the documents you want to view. By then
selecting "Recent Additions" the documents will be displayed in date order.
Audio Recordings are now being linked to individual names. These Recordings include Alec
Desert Island Discs, Jack England talking of his experiences when he suffered a stroke in 1976.
Brian England talking about his love of 80s music on WTMD and Brian's daughter, Sandi, on the
"Nuts & Bolts Show".
Further videos and audio recordings will be included once they become available.
(Please note: Due to copywrite restrictions some video content may not be available in your
country, if this is the case please let me know and I shall explore other video carrying
