|About Rowntrees of Riseborough
The purpose of this site is to make accessible a family tree cataloguing the descendants of William Rowntree of Riseborough (1727-1798).
The family tree - Rowntrees of Riseborough - has previously been set out by Brightwen Rowntree and Margaret Sessions with the last edition published by William Sessions Ltd in 1996.
2010 saw the transcription of the Rowntrees of Riseborough from printed format to electronic format. The next stage is to make corrections to the family tree, as despite best intentions, errors have found their way into the records over time.
There will also be several additions to be made to the tree as much has happened since the last edition of RoR in 1996.
If you know of additions or corrections that should be made to the tree then please do not hesitate to contact me and I will try to get it updated as soon as possible. Please note, that it is important that you provide accurate information. If in doubt about any details then it would be better left out until they can be verified.
I hope you enjoy this site.
