I have spent the past 5 years researching our DOEL family tree, the majority are from Hampshire in the UK, mainly Alresford/Owlesbury and Southampton. The earliest descendant that I have proved so far is Nathaniel DOEL who originated from Westbury in Wiltshire in 1718.
Being on the South Coast of England, seafaring played a big part in the life of many of the DOEL's born after 1880 - Many of the menfolk worked on the great liners including the tragic "Titanic" which claimed the life of one of the step brothers (Charles OLIVE) and spared the life of another (Frederick DOEL), other cousins were also caught up in the tradegy.
Other family descendants linking into the DOEL's include:
Any further information on any of these family names would be greatly received.
I have compiled this data from various resources. Original sources should always be checked for accuracy.
