Welcome to our family website. Like many families in the British Isles we have a bond with the ancient people of these islands. It has been clearly proven through the wonders of genetic research, that 80% of the British people are directly descended from those who settled in these lands after the last ice age, some 10,000 years ago.

We may these days be separated by a modern veneer of cultural difference, accent and language, but we all have those same ancient people as our progenitors. I would imagine there are not many people in the British Isles today, who do not have forebears from all the nations that now make up these beautiful islands.

We ourselves trace our more recent roots to Northumberland, Suffolk, the Scottish Borders, the wild Highlands of Scotland, the Emerald Isle of Ireland and to the north Welsh mountain fastness of Snowdonia.

The views expressed on this website are our own and may not always tally with those held by others. However, difference is what makes the world go round and our visitors book is here for discussion and debate, but please keep it intelligent and clean. 

I hope you enjoy your visit to our eclectic little corner of cyber space and find it an interesting experience.
