About North & South
Please sign in to see more.
This site is so named since my mother's family originated in the NORTH
of England on Merseyside, and my father's in the SOUTH, on the Solent. 
The research has been done mainly on the internet, but also with visits to Winchester 
Record Office to look at Titchfield Parish Registers, and The National Archives at Kew. A lot of 
information has come from family members "found" through this hobby. Some branches 
have proved fruitful, others - especially the two sets of Irish great 
grandparents - one on each side - (COWLEY and CARROLL) are currently "brick 
walls".  If you have any information which may help fill any gap, please let 
me know.

The two main family centres are WALLASEY, Cheshire, in the North, and 
TITCHFIELD, Hampshire, in the South.

In Wallasey the main family is LEDSHAM, with the HORSFALL and CARROLL families 
close behind - these are my mother's female line;  her father's line is 
PRESCOTT, found mainly on the opposite bank of the Mersey in the Liverpool 
area, although most of the Horsfalls were from Liverpool too. 
These families were in those areas for all the 18th and 19th 
centuries, the earliest record being 1655 (George Bennett)

The main families in the South are REED, FIELDER, and CAWTE in Titchfield, 
from 1700, these are my father's paternal line, and COWLEY, FLOAT and 
CUTBUSH in the Kent area; these are my father's maternal line.

EVERYONE in this tree - except husbands and wives who "married in" - can be 
traced back to an ancestor held in common with myself.

Because I don't know every exact date,(and try not to collect too many 
certficiates!) where a full date is shown it may be the baptism date, 
especially pre-1837. However, I have had some exact dates from other family 
researchers, and now of course full dates of birth can be found on the 1939 register. Where just a
month is shown, this will be the quarter in which the event was registered. Of course, post-1983
registrations have the month of registration not the quarter. The place of birth given may be the
registration district, if no exact information is known.

Enjoy your visit - and please sign the guest book!
