About me

I first became interested in my family tree in 2000. Since then I've enjoyed discovering and getting to know my ancestors and their nearest and dearest. Here are a few of the more interesting characters...

  • Isabella Johnson, a Scottish “herring lassie” who followed the fleet to the East Anglian coast where she gutted and packed fish, met a Lowestoft fisherman and stayed there.
  • Lucy Howard, who was without her parents in the workhouse by the age of 9, went on to give birth to three illegitimate children in three different workhouses, who eventually married –only to die in the 1918 flu pandemic.
  • Mary Fuller (sister of my great-great-great grandfather), who married a Parisian chef who served in Queen Victoria’s household. (Mary was already married to someone else, but let's not dwell on that…)
  • Dinah (or Diana) Gibson gave birth to my great-great-great grandfather Thomas, a “natural child”, but left him in Yorkshire when she emigrated to Quebec.
  • Despite my mother’s doubts, her grandfather James Smart really was captured by the Germans in World War I and survived (though his dad sold James’ piano while he was away).
  • Theodosius Jarlan, the Protestant minister who fled France with his family after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, and became an Anglican priest in Colchester.
  • George Coggrave, a labourer who became a railway goods foreman and union man, died aged 70 in 1922 – when he was said to be the oldest man in the port town of Goole.
  • When James Smart Senior’s wife Maria died, he married her sister Mary (which was illegal at that time).
  • My great-great-great-great-grandfather, George Atkinson, was punched in a pub in Hull in 1844 by my boyfriend's great-great-great-great-grandfather, Thomas Lazenby!
  • When I did a month's temping at the Dr Martens factory, I unwittingly represented the sixth generation of Fullers to work in the Northamptonshire shoe industry.
  • I'm descended from a hairdresser, some builders, a higgler, a family of innkeepers and blacksmiths, a fleet of fishermen, a field of agricultural labourers, a whole factory’s worth of shoemakers, and many, many hardworking housewives.

Good day, Katie!

i'd like to add this Category [Category:Norfolk, England, Fuller Name Study] to WikiTree profile Fuller-10093. Could you, or the responsible person for the Fuller England Category, kindly add this sub-category? Thank you! Albertus

Hi K Fuller,

Thank you for self-certifying for the Pre-1700 badge! Participation in a Pre-1700 Project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles. Collaboration is essential because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants.

It looks like the England Project would be a good fit with the tag you entered. Adding the tag England will help you get updates about activity for that project.

Do you have any questions? Let me know. I'm happy to help! :-)
