Welcome to the home page of the R. E. Wood Family
My main research is the WOOD & ROSS (my mother`s
maiden name) names, however I have discovered many more ancestors
with other surnames. These can all be accessed from my database made
from a Gedcom file. The majority of names are from the Great Ayton,
Stokesley, Guisborough, Skelton Liverton, Moorsholm, Loftus area of
North Yorkshire, except for the surname ROSS which traces back to
Forfarshire (Angus) & Kincardine areas of Scotland.
As of 4th August 2013 there are some 3879 persons in my
Family Tree database with 907 marriages. A lot has been prepared from
indexes although a fair ammount has been verified by Certificates and
the checking of Census & Parish Records.
Please contact me to ascertain details of any person
/family you are interested in.
In the database I have ancestors
with the name FEATHERSTONE going back to 1731. I researched back to
Thomas FEATHERSTONE b.1788 and his father Thomas FEATHERSTONE b.1764
by myself. However this information has been greatly expanded upon
since I became a member of THE FEATHERSTONE SOCIETY (see Links Page).
They have members who have been researching the FEATHERSTONE name for
many, many years via Parish Records, Wills, etc.In view of the hard
work done by, and in deference to these people, I will not be adding
any further information regarding the FEATHERSTONE surname to this
web site. I would reccommend that anyone researching the name
FEATHERSTONE join the Society. The small fee involved may be richly
rewarded as it has done in my experience..
NEW - From September 2002 - January 2003 I have indexed the
surname FEATHERSTONE and its variants from the 1891 Census for
Yorkshire. This index is available on the FEATHERSTONE SOCIETY web
site (See Links Page).
In December 2001 via the internet I
found a co-researcher of the SAD(D)LER surname, her name is Valerie
Heath.(nee SADLER). Her grandfather (David Dixon SADLER) and one of
my maternal grandmother`s (Lilian SADLER) were brother & sister.
She has a web site entitled The
SADLER Family of Osmotherley.
My research is still ongoing and as more ancestors and
verification of data from indexes is confirmed the database will be
updated., and information included on the What`s New page.
