Researching my family

My primary focus is on the Nunn male line and Nunn female line which emanate from the sister villages of Chevington and Hargrave near Bury St Edmunds about 45 minutes east of Cambridge in England.

I'm also researching various other paternal and maternal lines including Aldridge of Welwyn, Hertfordshire, Campbell of Glasgow and Stirling, Coker of Stepney, London, Cooper of Somerset and Wales,  Silver of Maryculter, Scotland, and Todd of Peebles, and Castle Douglas, Kircudbrightshire, Scotland.

As well, I'm researching Wallace of Clonmel, Tipperary, Ireland, de la Garde of Weybridge, Surrey, Storey of Westminster, London, and, da Costa of Jamaica, West Indies and Marylebone, London.

The menu structure should be helpful, but if you are looking for a particular surname (Nunn or otherwise), I have a searchable database which you can access here.

My research is also presented in regular html pages.

The tree is also posted on but you will need to subscribe to that service to see my tree there. It starts at my great-great grandfather David Nunn (1827-1900).

For those interested in the Cokers of Tower Hamlets, London, I have compiled a list of baptisms in that borough. Go there now.

There's a lot more to find out ...
