As of October 2019 I am on hiatus from Wikitree. I may or may not return on any substantial basis in the future.



Grew up in Barrington, Cambridgeshire, attending the Perse School for Boys. Studied Economics at Warwick University and then moved to Birmingham (Hall Green, Yardley, Shirley and finally Solihull) on starting career with Ernst & Young.

Lived in Cleveland, Ohio, USA between 2001 and 2003. Moved to Ireland in 2006, living first in Malahide, Co. Dublin and then the Letterkenny area.


Grandparents are Cottrell, Morris, Croft and Grant. I have entered details for my direct ancestors to complete my 'compact tree' to the extent there is reliable information to date.

I also research my wife's family tree. Her grandparents are Lynch, Cullen, Burke and Bonner.

I have uploaded my wife's family tree as there are elements of this I am missing (largely due to the lack of Irish records in the 1800s).

Wikitree Activities

Apart from maintaining a watchlist of 5,000 profiles I spend time on the following:

Orphan Profiles

As I am at my watchlist limit there is a chance you have come here because you found an orphaned profile I created. These should all be sourced (or marked unsourced) and in order but please contact me if you have any queries on them (like why I created them in the first place!).

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their follwed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any disucssions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you konw that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!

I'm active on and off on Wikitree but certainly not to the extent I was and not in particular doing any cemetery projects as of now.

You can remove me or leave me on your list as you see fit.

Thanks for checking back in with us Jason! I know time is a valuable commodity, but we would be honored to have you as a member of the Project, if you are not active at this time. This just helps us to keep with our WikiTree friends and see where their interests reside within our Project - who knows, you may be the local expert we need in the future!

Stay well!

RE: John Flood - (1841 - 1909) - it seems he was not a member of the 'Irish Patriots', but he was a patriot. Thanks for the correction.

I'll need to at least add him to some other categories.

Hi, the comment posted on my page re: Categories is actually in reference to 'project/groups' I'm a part of and were added as were the descriptions on project details etc, when joined (edit: meant to add was just a typo).

Another Example can be seen here:

Jason, how do I change from Irish Roots to Irish Clan, and I'm not sure that I really understand why I've been asked to do so.
