How to use this chart:

The tree is arranged according to generations with 'generation 1' being our earliest known ancestor. The tree expands as you read from left to right, thus it is possible to see quickly all of the descendants of one person from an earlier generation. Since this tree deals with only one surname, the female line stops at the point of their marriage (and surname change). 'End of line' is stated to emphasise this. Where a male's descendants are unknown, 'Unknown Descendants' is stated. By clicking on an individual's name a separate page will load giving known information about that person, and in many cases, photographs. (Use your browser's 'back' button to return to this page). The tree stops at my father's generation. If you think you may have ancestors that fit into this tree, I'd obviously be very interested to hear from you.
