"A Journey Through the Family Tree of the Hudgell Family"
For almost 20 years I have been compiling a One-Name Study of the surname Hudgell and the variation Hudgill and Hudgel.
I have gathered as much information as possible on all the Hudgells and variations of the name from the past to present day. So far the family history goes back to 1550 with the birth of George Hudswell in the town of Sawbridgeworth in Hertfordshire.
The family spills over from Hertfordshire to Essex, Suffolk and London over the following years, with a few elsewhere. I am recording all births, marriages and deaths hoping to build eventually the whole of the family history of the Hudgell name.
We have quite a diverse selection of Hudgells, including famous old time and current footballers, war hero's, clergymen and doctors.
Of course no family history would be complete without the 'Rogues' and skeletons in the cupboard. In our Rogues Gallery we have thieves, murderers and vagabonds including 2 transported to Australia for their sins.
Quite a few Hudgell ancestors have their own detailed pages here. If you are looking for a specific person the information you are interested in will be there for you. But in many cases I have a lot more information than what appears so if you would like this please ask.
If you think you have found a possible match with a branch or person in your family, or want to suggest updates or corrections to what you've found, please contact me, I am constantly updating this database.
I do tend to think of the names Hudgill, Hudgell, and Hudgel interchangeable, because their spellings have varied depending on the individual family or document, sometimes even within the same document.
My own great grandfather was born Hudgell, married in the name of Hudgell, but all his children are Hudgill and he was buried a Hudgill.
Why not take a look and see if your branch of the Hudgell family are included here and if not please contact me.
All enquiries are welcome and any information, however trivial, is always gratefully received and acknowledged.
Warm regards & again Welcome
