The current banner shows Alnwick Castle, in Northumberland - a county in the far north east of England, bordering Scotland.  This region is home to a number of Appleby lines - and our DNA project has confirmed genetic connections between several of these, which also match lines in Canada, USA and Ireland.

Applebys of Alnwick, Northumberland

This Appleby line begins with Thomas Appleby, an inkeeper who married Mary Trotter in 1785, at Warkworth, Northumberland.  Given, the location, this line may well be connected to the Applebys of Acklington.


All of the branches seem to have stayed in Northumberland, with one person moving to Glasgow.


If you have any further information about this line, please get in touch via this link.


Alnwick Castle, home of the Dukes of Northumberland.
