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.

The entries on these spreadsheets were transcribed from the Scotlands People website. We currently only have one Scottish Appleby tree on our website - the Applebys of Kirkcaldy - and in fact, this line is known to have originated in Ireland, but the first members of the family seem to have arrived in Scotland shortly before the 1851 census.
However, the early parish records reveal that there were Applebys living in Scotland as early as the 1660s.
If your ancestors were Appleby's from Scotland, please get in touch and tell us more about them!

The information on the following spreadsheets is taken from either the Scotland's People website or from Ancestry - In the majority of cases, I have only examined the actual images for the one Scottish Appleby line that we have on the website. Further details will be added over time.
