About Our Family Research

I know that my family are originally from Ballyclare in Northern Ireland. My grandfather moved to England in 1956, along with two brothers, one of which moved to Newbury.

My great-grandfather had 14 siblings, including one who emigrated to Australia, and one to New Zealand.

As far as I know, there are no records of my family in Ireland, owing to a family feud in the 19th century.

I have also learnt that I have relatives in the USA, on my mother's side of the family. My mother's family are from all over England, including Anlaby, Scarborough, Malton, Bursleton and Knedlington.

I understand that I am descended from both the Celts (the name 'McKnight' is Celtic) and the Vikings (my mother's maiden name is Thorley, derived from the Scandinavian 'Thorleifr').
