About Our Family Research
So this is our Family Tree and, on 1st July 2003, it became my first attempt at publishing anything on the Internet, updates have been uploaded regularly since then and It will continue to be very much a "Work in Progress" project as new information is unearthed but, after 18 months spent on research, I thought I'd better show something for my efforts.
The core revolves around our main family lines: Tindall, Pain, Evans, and Potter; Gibson, Jebb, Ackers and Thompson; although we have persued other "interesting" lines such as the Pilkington's and the Melling's.
Old records have revealed a number of alternative spellings for Tindall-Tynedale-Tyndall-Tindle-Tindal and Pain-Paine-Payne. I have even found official records with different spellings for the same person at different stages of their life, Including three variations of Pain within the children of one set of parents! Inconsistency was due to the high level of illiteracy prior to the 20th Century.
If you can help extend our research or clarify any errors, we would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
