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.

Henry Appleby of

Kirkby Malzeard

This is such a large line that it has been broken into sections:

  • CHART 1 - shows the descendants of Henry Appleby and and Mary Lister

  • CHART 2 - shows the descendants of John Appleby and Susannah Hicks

  • CHART 3 - shows the descendants of George Appleby and Elizabeth Smith

 (source Wikipedia)

We were already aware that James Appleby of Hurworth on Tees and Thomas Appleby of Neasham belong to this line of Applebys that originated in Kirkby Malzeard, but we have now discovered through our DNA test programme that at least two other lines are also descended from this line: that of Thomas Appleby of Leeds and also the line of Robert Appleby of Eryholme.  It looks very likely that the Durham line of William Appleby of Framwellgate ALSO belongs to this group, but the DNA results from that line were taken with another DNA test company, so we should probably have them rerun to be absolutely certain.

 

We now need to undertake some further research on the documentary records to try to establish where the connections line between the different lines.
