Family Trees

Welcome to the family trees section. Most of the family trees have been constructed using the Parish records for Longhope and other documents we have transcribed over the years including wills, churchyard inscriptions and visitation records.

This project has only just started and is expected to take many months or even years. If you have found that your family tree links to Longhope we would love to hear from you so we can expand our trees here. Note that here we don't constrain overselves to people who were born and lived in Longhope - you may also find people from nearby parishes and villages here too.

An example of an entry in the Fowle family tree is shown below.

317: C 04/09/1766 D 08/09/1766 John Fowle

The baptism date is coloured green and preceded by the letter C. Baptism dates are not always given. A entry in the baptism register may record a child's parents' names but the parents may not be from Longhope so they are included with no date. The burial date is coloured blue and preceded by the letter D. If marriage information is available then it is coloured red and the date is preceded by the letter M. Clicking on any name in the tree shows you detailed information about the entry.

To begin, click the search button on the left and select the tree you wish to view. Note that we work forwards through the records, not backwards as is customary when researching your family tree and, hence, earlier records are being added first.


We quote all original sources for each entry made in the tree. These could be from the parish records, visitation records or wills. Most of this information is obtained from the Gloucestershire Records Office (i.e. original sources) and not from transcripts that may be available elsewhere on the Internet. When such a record is used, it starts with the letters "GRO" followed by the document number. Common document numbers are: MF571 (bishop's transcripts for the parish of Longhope) and D3436/1 and PFC206 (registers of baptisms, marriages and burials for All Saints' Church, Longhope).
