Here is the link to the latest version (2014) of the global Duggleby Familly Tree:
140112 DP Dugglebys 11th to 21st Century Family Tree linked to Chris Duggleby
As with the development of every family tree this is an ‘on-going’ process. With the global Duggleby Family we are in the fortunate position of probably having descended from a handful of people (or possibly just one person) living in the village of Duggleby. This village is in the English county of Yorkshire which was featured under its old name of Difgelibi in the Domesday Book in 1086 (you can find out more about this on the Duggleby History page by clicking here).
Clearly when we go back beyond 500 years it is difficult to find a trail of indisputable written records to confirm the births, deaths and marriages of our forebears. Therefore considerable amateur detective work has been necessary together with some careful subjective judgement. Great thanks and acknowledgements are due here to Ellen Reid, Vincent Duggleby and other helpers around the globe like Bonny McLeod. Some of the old documents used in the quest for ancient family knowledge are described in the following blogs (just click on the titles below):
The Duggleby Family Tree – First 500 years after the Domesday Book of 1086
Duggleby Family Archives – more interesting historical documents
12th and 13th Century Genealogy Research from Records of Ecclesiastical Land Transactions and Chancery Inquisitions
Although we can not be one hundred percent sure about every link in the chain there is a pretty good chance that if you, or your forebears, bear the name ‘Duggleby’ or one of its variants (e.g. Dugleby, Dugelbi or Duggelby) you are probably derived from the Dugglebys listed near the top of the family tree (namely Sir Henry Duggleby and his close family).
Since the first partial version was published (9th June 2013) I have received lots of additional information and some corrections (big thanks to everyone who has contributed). The version in the link above is the updated version (available since 25th January 2014) which is much more comprehensive than the earlier version. I have also included a link at the bottom of this page to the blog where I first published this new version – this explains more about the tree.
One important thing to note is that I have taken the precaution of protecting the information about living Dugglebys to ensure compliance with International Data Protection/Data Privacy laws.

I mentioned Ellen Reid above . Ellen’s data formed the basis for my PDF file of the Duggleby family tree. She is currently populating a GenoPro website with data which I am sure will be a useful reference for many people investigating Duggleby genealogy. If this is you…here is the link to Ellen’s site (currently contains Worldwide data from about 1560 to present )… DUGGLEBY family history – includes family trees
Happy ancestor hunting!

This is fascinating; what an extensive listing of Dugglebys and surprisingly easy to find the family branch I was looking for. My husband is the son of Lilian Mary Duggleby (pg. 79), who married Leslie Thomas Kerrin in 1939.
These people are long gone, but they are revived just through seeing their names. And the names live on – we have a 2 year old granddaughter named Lilian Mary now.
Thank you for this work, and for sharing it.
Many thanks for the feedback Rosemary, it is great to hear the charts were of help. Have a great 2023.
All the best,
Hi Chris, What an amazing amount of work and fab tree. My interest comes from a relative who joined the Duggleby’s in the 1930s. My Great Aunt was Edith Alice Horsley. I have a photo of her taken in the 1920’s which may be of interest to you.
Many thanks Guy, always interested in historical pics. you may want to look up the “I’m a Duggleby and proud of it!” site on Facebook – this is where many of the global Duggleby clan share photos and info regarding families, genealogy etc. All the best,
