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 April 2018
BMD spreadsheets and sources – on Sources tab
BMDs links updated to March 2018. 95% + of all BMDs from 1837 to March 2018 now linked to a living YOXALL descendant. Can you link any of those few without parents or spouses?
All YOXALL lines – on Yoxall Name tab
Statistics aren’t the easiest way to explain how concentrated the YOXALL surname is the various YOXALL lines. All the figures are there, but if you click on the pie chart in the right hand margin, the reality may surprise you.
Photology – add to Miscellaneous tab?
Ok, so there is no such word, and it is a bunch of photos with genealogical data. But let’s be honest, it looks a lot more interesting than a chart. It displays your research better than any other method. Have a look at 3 examples
Ghost trees – add to Miscellaneous tab?
Many of us have found clusters of ancestors that, timewise, appear then disappear. Several families live in an area where there is a start and finish date for all these ancestors. I have 2 such trees. But where did they come from and go to?
Moses YOXALL and Elizabeth LEWIS line – see Genealogy tab
Major update to many female YOXALL lines. More than 300 descendants added. Check out if any are your ancestors. Tell me if you haven’t found your deceased YOXALL ancestor.
More than 1,000 new sources and more than 800 people added or updated. Is your YOXALL ancestor included in my update? If not, let me know.
