|Genealogy of the Simpson Family|
In recent years I have become increasingly interested in the history of both my own and Helen's families. (My Uncle Donald, who provided a wealth of information about the Simpson side, described it as a sure sign of growing old!).
Some of the principal names and locations in our ancestry are:
|Simpson and Gordon||Banf and Strathdon areas of Scotland|
|Sutton and Mortimer||West Riding of Yorkshire|
|Harold||Liverpool and West Indies|
|Goodall and Cottrell||Liverpool, Birkenhead & Knaresborough|
|Parsons, Eeley and Freeborn||Oxfordshire|
There are several ways to view the Simpson Family Tree:
|A Dynamic Pedigree View - Created by RootsMagic (Updated 2015-01-07)|
Displays the complete tree. Dates and other details have been excluded for people still living. This
is the preferred way to view the tree and is the only version which will be regularly updated as I discover
more about the family. So this is the place to come for the most up-to-date information.
|Various Alternative Views|
|As plain HTML pages - Created by GED2HTML
(Data last updated 2008-05-29)
|As a Java Applet - Created by DftCom2
(Data last updated 2008-12-01)
Part of our family tree can be viewed in detail starting from the list
of SURNAMES or the index of PERSONS included here.
This is only about a fifth of the family members in our database and just includes Judith's direct ancestors and their immediate family. As with the other trees, dates and other details have been excluded for people still living. This is not a very elegant format to view but it has the enormous advantage over the other trees, that the names and dates are all visible to web search engines. So people searching for a particular name and date will find it here. This has resulted in many contacts over the years from distant family members, of whose presence I was previously unaware.
Alternatively if your browser supports Java, click
HERE to load a Dynamic Family Tree.
This was my original preferred way of viewing the complete tree. Sadly the security shambles into which Java has degenerated, means that very few browsers are now configured to display Java applets from web sites. If you do have such a browser you may well like to give this version of the tree a try. It contains the complete database but again dates and other details have been excluded for people still living. I am unlikely to keep this tree up to date.

N.B. The tree will open in a new browser window, or a new tab if your browser supports tabbed browsing. Close this window or tab when you have finished viewing the tree, to return here.
Like the HTML pages, this tree includes only about a fifth
of the family members in our database and just includes Judith's direct ancestors and
their immediate family. Dates and other details
have been excluded for people still living.
Some of our more interesting ancestors are:
|William Capernicus Harold||St Vincent in the West Indies|
|Walter & Ellen Freeborn||Butcher in St.Clements, Oxford|

We are always interested in sharing information with anyone else having links to any of these families.
