A summary of my research to date can be found on my Profile page at the Guild of One Name Studies.
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 – November 2017
New YOXALL branch, Elizabeth YOXALL born 8 May 1805, daur of Abraham YOXALL & Sarah SCRAGG
For those related to Benjamin YOXALL b.c.1620/1640 and his wife Mary, there is a new branch for this unknown descendant. A USA researcher contacted has found a Prayer Book belonging to her grandmother, dated 1803. The book records not just the births of Elizabeth but other siblings.
New Biography – The history of the Eckhardt – Yoxall family has been included by kind permission of the author, Roger Eckhardt. Due to the sheer size of this amazing family history, Part 1, before 1911 and Part 2, 1911-1930, has had to be split into several sections. For those related to Kansas YOXALL line of George Eaton YOXALL & Elizabeth Tirza FARR, or the line of Moses YOXALL & Elizabeth LEWIS, it is a must read history. Packed with historical information and many photos, the time to load each section is worth the short wait. Enjoy.
Dozens of new Photos and data added to the Kansas YOXALL line
Dozens of new photos and data added to the YOXALL/ MASON/OXLEY lines
More than 1,000 new sources added or updated
[With the exception of the new Eckhardt-Yoxall biography, all the new material can be found within the Genealogy database.]
