Morris / Dowdeswell Family History

Welcome to my family history site. It covers many surnames including Attwood, Bayton, Brown, Davies, Dowdeswell, Evans, Gilmore, Hale, Harris, Hewlwtt, Hobbs, Howell, Hughes, James, Jenkin, Jones (of course), Lakings, Morris, Owen, Parfitt, Philips, Pim, Rees, Stack, Stowell, Stride, Thomas, Vaughan, White, William, Wookey and Wynne.

Most come from Wales or the South West of England but also includes Ireland.


There is much more to the site than just this. There are old photographs, history, description of places, stories, free certificates and so on.


If you are looking for a particular person a good way to start is by clicking on "Surnames” in the block below.

A block of links appears at the bottom of most pages. 


You may find the stories - about individuals, couples, their work and the places they lived - of interest as they give much more detail of the way of life at the time.


This version of the new website was published on 29th March 2023. It is under construction so much is missing and you may find that some of the links are not yet operating. Please return from time to time as more and more will be added.
