I became interested in Awbrey family history in the 1960s when an aunt and some cousins held several family reunions.

My interest in Awbrey family history became active again in 2014. For several years I had been interested in my wife's research on her Martin and Dooley family genealogy. This included visits to various locations in the U.S. and to Gien, France where her great-great grandfather lived while a member of the French General Assembly.

While planning a trip to Bristol, England in 2014 for more Martin family research we decided to visit Brecon, Wales to do Awbrey family research.

That visit was revealing. I visited Awbrey related sites at Abercynrig Estate, St. Ellwy's Church at Llanelieu, Christ College and Brecon Cathedral. There was much I did not know at that time.

In 2016, a second visit to Brecon and surrounding areas were much more productive due to research that had been done. Visits to additional sites and buildings related to the family were made.

My Awbrey family research has been greatly assisted by books self-published by cousins:

Aubrey/Awbrey published by Mildred Awbrey in 1966.
Aubrey-Awbrey of Virginia and Kentucky published by Walton L. Aubrey in 1987.
Awbrey-Aubrey Family Heritage and History published by Jack C. Awbrey in 1991.
Aubrey/Awbrey - Dominion and Decline published by Jon A. Awbrey in 2007.
and a pedigree chart of pre-1600s ancestors prepared by Darrell Wolcott of The Center for the Study of Ancient Wales.

On site research has been done at:

The National Archives, Kew, London
National Portrait Gallery, London
Family Search center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Online research has been very productive with general searches on Google and specific online searches of the National Archives and the National Library of Wales.

Research never stops. What an addiction!

Hi Stuart. Can you or someone from the Wales project setup the higher category for Welsh Immigrants to Canada so that I may split off in to the different provinces for the Western Canada Project? Thank you!

Hi, Stuart -- Finally found the new URL for Henry Awbrey's page. Being stubbon helps.

Stewart, I'm copying this from Henry Awbrey's page: "Re: Link no longer working -- it probably never will, thanks to Ancestry. They were supposed to maintain the archives for Rootsweb, but had a couple of major computer crashes. Some of the archived messages are back, but this one seems to have been not recovered. There was a lot of really good information that got lost when Ancestry didn't take care of those sites."

Hi Stewart, Thank you fow the work you have done. I don't think Langhee was the profile I thinks it was a Sanford or Samford. To get a better response when wanting the location changed to a colony, you might mention that instead of the year. TY Jenny

Hi Stuart, Did you change the birthdate? If not 1694 seems okay do you have additional information that indicates it should be different?

Thank you
