The family tree you access from this page has details of all the following contained within it:
My personal ancestors both ESSERYs and others - so far we have traced our family tree back up to ten generations;
The ESSERYs who are listed in the UK Censuses for Devon in 1851, North Devon for 1861, 1871 & 1891 and all of the UK for 1881;
The ESSERYs who appear in the UK section of the IGI
You can see the same data in one of three forms:
In Family Tree form with three generations of ancestors shown along with spouse, children and critical events - the standard output form from GED2HTML - Follow these links to see the data in this form: PERSON INDEX or SURNAME INDEX
In GED2WWW form - basic information in smaller units making for faster browsing
In Dynamic Family Tree Compiler form - click the button to open a new window and access the tree - when finished close the Dynamic Family Tree window to return to this page.
In all three formats presented above, the basic underlying data is the same. It contains 1619 people in 488 families. The most common surnames in addition to ESSERY are BAKER, BRIDGMAN, JOLLER, PRICE and SCOTCHER. For some individuals you will also find various linked Notes about them.
I would be very interested in people's views on which of the above three methods of presenting the data have been found the most usable. If you have views please mail me
If you are interested in the tools we used to produce the above pages, we record the family history in a package called Family Tree Maker (www.familytreemaker.com), output it in GEDCOM format, remove all living individuals with GEDClean and then convert it to HTML with GED2HTML, GED2WWW or Dynamic Family Tree Compiler
