I am working on a genealogical history of Staffordshire Landed Gentry and related families including relevant members of the Peerage and Baronetage. I have already an enormous amount of information and am planning to deposit the archive in the Stafford Record Office. At some time it might be possible to publish the whole work on compact disc. The enclosed is a print out from the above project.

Naturally I do not have time to research each family in detail. For this reason I am always very pleased to receive information from persons conducting more detailed research into particular families. Such information will be incorporated into the work and the name and address of such persons acknowledged under each family.

Please note that information is mainly restricted to persons born in or before 1680. However interesting links to more modern times will be noted.


ARMS:*Argent a pale fusilly sable (a1483) [FEUDAL]
