I started family history in the 1990s after a family funeral, mainly with youngest brother. Recently took it up again, and digitized all those paper notes and primary source references into a Gedcom 5.5.1 file and started importing in WikiTree.

We researched our paternal line very solidly back to William Little, Dormansteads, Stapleton, Cumberland, UK, 1676 to 1763-03-27. We hit a bit of a brick wall, so we hope that the Little One Name Study, its Cumberland and Stapleton Parish sub-projects, and the Little Y-DNA project will help link further back perhaps to pre-1600. As Stapleton is only a few miles from Scotland, the Dumfriesshire, Scotland, Little sub-project may be helpful too.

Other names of interest in that time and place are Kennedy, Robson, Phillips and Agnes McQuin who is a particular ‘brick wall’.

Our maternal line goes back to farming stock in County Durham, NE England, UK. Family names of interest are Revell, Sayer, Bainbridge and Coatsworth. Annie Robinson and her father are a .brick wall’ too.

Living relatives are scattered around the world (Australia, Canada, India, Middle East, Spain, Thailand and USA).

Followed Tags
Chris is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
Very convenient, but consistency of approach across projects would be nice.
Excellent project for catching those typos. Trained touch typists still have an error rate of 2 or 3 mistypes per 100 characters!
Frustrated by the non-interoperability of Gedcoms, and having 1700+ new people
Currently, an iPad is my most convenient hardware, but various wrinkles need to be understood.
My paternal family name for at least 10 generations, from Cumberland in NW England and perhaps SW Scotland.
Little, in particular Cumbria, England and eventually SW Scotland
I keep encountering Quakers in Cumbria, so thought I should get more involved.

Hi Chris,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Hi Chris - thank you for sorting out the Lutwidge/Lutridge/Lulwidge Little triplication issue. It's so good to have it fixed so easily and quickly.

Hi Chris,

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

Susie :-)

Yes Chris, John Sayer did marry Margaret Bousfield on 5 Jun 1716. My 6th great uncle. Sorry I didn't realise I had not entered Margaret as his spouse so will do it now.
