Biography

This profile is part of the Wilkins Name Study.

I was born in the summer of 1974 in Burton on Trent, Staffordshire[1] and lived in South Derbyshire with my parents and younger brother. I'm not religious, but was baptised and confirmed in the village church.

I went to university at Bangor in North Wales in 1992 to read Electronic Engineering, and was there for 4 years.

After graduation, I moved to Oxfordshire to work as a radio / electronics engineer. I've since changed jobs (several times!) but still live in the area. I have also studied for degrees in Science and History with the Open University and a Graduate Certificate in Transport History with the University of York (just for fun!).

Family history is one of my many hobbies which include collecting books, collecting stamps, amateur radio (M3KSH & G8KSH), fishing (sea & course), playing keyboard fairly well and drums very badly.

In 2018 I passed my fireman's exams and volunteer on the footplate at a heritage railway centre: https://bucksrailcentre.org/

I also have a love of owls ... they are said to be old and wise - one day I would like to be both.

I've just started the Wilkins name project, please join me!

Hi Alison,

I am 35 degrees from you, congrats on all your badges.

Hi cousin looks like our lines got twisted. I had no idea that there was an Andover-Essex-Massachusetts. Strange to lead back to UK.

I was confused at first because my son married an Alison Watkins Geoff - Australia

Hi Alison,

I noticed you earned the Club 1000 badge for June. That's awesome - congratulations! Thanks for all your efforts, it seems like you have a lot to contribute :)

PS. I think it's very cool that you took a Steam Engineman's Course!

Hi Alison. I just awarded you the European Aristocrats member badge. Those profiles you've been working on look amazing! I think members of this project sometimes get so caught up in merging and cleaning up GEDCOM messes that we don't take enough time to actually write nice biographies, so it's great to see someone doing that. :)

The only Hardwick in our family tree is Joseph and this is through my wife's Kershaw family connection.

I have no other information on Joseph, his parents or siblings.
