Welcome to the YOXALL One-Name Study. My study evolved rather than started at a particular time. More by good luck I came across four people, Joan Gallagher, Peter Byford, David Perkins and Graham Caddick, all with extensive knowledge of the YOXALL surname. It soon became clear how localised the surname was. At this time the 1881 census was digitally available and I soon proved there were barely a dozen core YOXALL families. And so the One-Name study began, my role being the facilitator, one which I have continued after completion of my 1881 project thanks to these four people. Much of their original research was at County Offices and Local Libraries, not sat in front of a computer as we lucky people are today.
Person ID number
Every person in my Genealogy has their own unique number, a feature I have used to track and trace people across my website. The slide show in the sidebar includes a reference such as (id908). Selecting ‘Genealogy/Advanced Search/ Person ID’ and entering only the number 908, you will find details of George and any family.
For more details on using Person ID see ‘How to use this website’.
Also note that no personal details of living people, or those less than 100 years old and not known to be deceased, are shown on my website.
What’s new October 2018
Alice YOXALL, daur of Benjamin YOXALL, bapt 10 Apr 1748 Church Minshull, spouse of Samuel GILL.
A YOXALL researcher has made a breakthrough to link the above Alice YOXALL to Elizabeth WALTON, spouse of Thomas YOXALL, grandson of Moses YOXALL & Elizabeth LEWIS. Scores of descendants of Samuel GILL & Alice YOXALL. Are any related to you? Can you help fill any of the gaps in this YOXALL line?
At this time, parents for Moses YOXALL are still not known, one suggestion being that he was the son of Benjamin YOXALL & Joannah LAW, who are currently the best suggestion for parents of the above Alice YOXALL. Can anyone make the missing link for parents of Moses?
Descendants of William YOXALL & Mary KEEN
There is a major update for this YOXALL line, which is now much better proven from many original sources, new people and new photos. I am aware that some YOXALL researchers have parents for William YOXALL as Thomas YOXALL & Ann SCARR, a link that is unproven for two reasons:
1 – William YOXALL, son of Thomas YOXALL & Ann SCARR was baptised 11 Mar 1787, Feckenham, Worcestershire and William YOXALL married Mary KEEN 25 Oct 1802, Northfield, Worcestershire. William, son of Thomas & Ann, would therefore be only age 15/16 years old if he was the William who married Mary KEEN.
2 – When William YOXALL married Mary KEEN, both he and Mary were widower and widow respectively, suggesting William was much born much earlier than William bapt 11 Mar 1787.
Almost 1,500 new sources, 800 new people and dozens more photos added. Check out if any of these updates are your YOXALL interest, as there are far too many to mention individually.
