It is interesting to look at information not merely by lists of places,
but with a spatial context and by timeframe too.|
Mapping allows the pictorial representation.
Clearly the difficulty lies in choosing which events to represent and how. Too much information leads
to an inability to see patterns; too little information and relationships cannot be seen.
I have taken the approach of only selecting Birth (or Baptism), Marriage and Death (or Burial)
events, and selecting the people for inclusion in any single study based upon a relationship criterion.
Thus so far I have looked at :
Clearly it will be necessary from time-to-time to revisit and include new people and events discovered since this was compiled.
- My direct ancestors (Maternal and Paternal)
- The blood descendants of some earliest-known ancestors (only UK events included here)
- John Chantler a father by 1728
My 8 times great-grandfather, whose line was Surrey based with one member stating a new branch in Suffolk
- Edward Linfield a father by 1543
My 11 times great-grandfather, whose line virtually remained Sussex until the 20th Century
- Joseph Milford a father by 1675
My 8 times great-grandfather, based in rural Devon
- Joseph Puttock married 1760
My 5 times great-grandfather, Sussex based but spreading faster than other family groups
- Thomas Roberts married 1564
My 10 times great-grandfather, Sussex based but spreading over South Eastern England rapidly
And ten years down the line, I have indeed revisited some of these mapping pages and updated them.
