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  certificates!) 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!

I am adding this comment since I have discovered several of my family photo's on other sites - and they can only have come from here.  I do not mind sharing - but it is surely just common politeness to ask first ?  When you share on an open site others can also use a photo - this site is private and protected and I was quite upset to see a picture of my parents  on an un-protected site.
