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.

Samuel Appleby wheelwright

Samuel Appleby, wheelwright was originally from Northamptonshire, but later later settled in St Pancras with his young family. 


I started gathering information about Samuel Appleby after finding him working in St Pancras as a wheelwright in the early London censuses, in case there was a link with my own Joseph Appleby (who was supposed to be the son of a wheelwright).  However, I soon discovered that Samuel Appleby had originally come from Northamptonshire - and members of his brother Francis (a carpenter)'s family also migrated to London.


[Note: the information on this chart has been drawn from census as well as London parish records - but the relationship between Samuel, his brother Francis and their siblings is a bit speculative and is based on information from IGI - if anyone can confirm or correct this data I would be most grateful]
