Ten Major Gypsy Families of Wales & The English West & North


Ten Major Gypsy Families of Wales & The English West & North - as its title implies - brings together the family trees of 10 families, grouped by the region of Britain in which they originated, lived and travelled and – no doubt in some cases – associated with each other and intermarried.

The result is a book that is very different in format to the previous 17 single-surname volumes in the RTFHS’s popular Family Tree series but one that continues to offer family historians the pioneering and in-depth research that Eric Trudgill is well-known for.

The 10 families featured in this book are: Daniel EVANS & Lydia JONES; Abel, Cinamenty & Patience RYALLS; Francis & Fanny HEAPS;
Robert HOLLAND & Ann BRADBURY; George FLORENCE & Ann BAILEY; John SCARROTT & Ann HALL; Thomas SHERRIFF & Mary BUTLER; Edmund CHARLOTTE & Elizabeth JUSTICE; John & Faney WARTON; and Richard, Devit & Margaret HERON.

As far as we are aware, some of these families have never been studied in detail, documented or appeared in print before.

This book is the first in a number of Family Tree books currently in preparation by Eric in this fresh compendium-style, geographically based, format, to be published by the RTFHS in due course.
