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.

John Appleby trimming maker of Bethnal Green

When I first constructed this tree, it contained the family of John Appleby, a weaver/ trimming maker and his wife Ann (Pluck) who lived in Bethnal Green.  Since receiving further details from no less than FIVE descendants of this line it has grown considerably.  And although many of the descendants did live in Bethnal Green, they also had branches in other parts of London (Fulham, Camberwell) and in Cambridgeshire and Essex as well as in the USA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can read the story of one branch of the family (Samuel Appleby and his wife Emma Lambert, along with their son Walter Appleby of the tassel factory), written by Elaine here.

 

We now know that John the trimming maker was a son of John Appleby and Susannah (Hanson), John was born in Coventry in 1774 and he died in Littleport, Cambridgeshire in 1848: in the 1841 census he is listed as a grocer.

 

John and Susannah had at least five children, and trees showing the descendants of three of their sons are shown on this site:

  • Samuel Appleby and his wife Rebecca (Pickard) - Samuel's various occupations are recorded as weaver, gold lace manufacturer, draper, grocer and he lived at various times in Bethnal Green, the City of London and Cambridgeshire.  A number of Samuel's descendants remained in the grocery business

  • John Appleby and his wife Ann (Pluck) - John's occupations are known to have been weaver and trimming maker - although he seems to have spent most of his life in Bethnal Green, we believe that one or two of his children were born in Essex, where Ann Pluck's family lived.  Some of their descendants stayed in the same trade, notably the family of Walter Appleby who had a 'tassell factory', but others followed the Pluck family trade and became bootmakers, while others were grocers, licensed victuallers and tin plate workers. Five of their sons married and had families - each of which is shown on a separate chart below.

  • Thomas William Appleby and his wife Phoebe (Davis) - in 1841, Thomas was a lace weaver in Bethnal Green, but around 1850 Thomas and Phoebe and two sons John and Alfred emigrated to America, settling in Wisconsin where they became farmers.

The descendancy charts for this family contain so many individuals that I have divided them up into smaller sections for ease of viewing:

  • CHART 1 - Descendants of John and Susannah

  • CHART 2 - Descendants of Samuel and Rebecca

  • CHART 3 - descendants of John and Ann (Pluck) - this group is VERY large so has been subdivided into five separate charts:

  • CHART 3a - Descendants of Samuel and Emma

  • CHART 3b - Descendants of John and Mary Ann

  • CHART 3c - Descendants of William and Hannah

  • CHART 3d - Descendants of George and Martha

  • CHART 3e - Descendants of James and Emily

  • CHART 4 - Descendants of Thomas and Phoebe

if you click on the map, you can download an 1848 map of Bethnal Green from the Victorian London website, where you can also read Hector Gavin's Sanitary Ramblings'

If you also belong to this very large line of Applebys, we would love to hear from you - and if you would like to add your story to appear alongside Elaine's that would be great.  Any photos or additional information would also be most welcome.

 

We now have two set of yDNA results that match in 35/37 markers, for descendants two of John Appleby (b. 1774) and Susannah Hanson's sons, confirming the accuracy of these major lines of the reconstructed tree:

line one - John Appleby (1798-1838) and Ann Pluck

line two - Thomas Wm Appleby (1804-1879) and Phoebe Davis

This photo of Gales Gardens in Bethnal Green (where Samuel and Emma Appleby lived for a time) is included thanks to Ken Russell whose brilliant website contains loads of old photos of this part of London - if you have any old photos of Bethnal Green, why not send them to him for inclusion on his site?.
