As I update the Duggleby Family Tree this is the page where I will make the latest version available.
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):
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). At a later stage I hope we will be able to resurrect the Duggleby DNA testing project to further build on our knowledge base (more on this in a future article).
If you have additional information relating to the Duggleby family please let me know. You can contact me using the comments box at the bottom of each page on this site and if you do not wish for your comments to be published please add the word ‘confidential‘ at the top of your communication.
When I publish updates of the tree these will be available via the link (in orange) at the bottom of this page. 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). An updated version is now available (from 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. If you are one of these people and you would like to see your information published in the tree published on this site please confirm this to me via the comments box. When you do this please also let me know:
- Who you are
- Which page in the tree you believe you should be part of
- What information you would like me to include about yourself e.g.
- Date of birth
- Full name
- General location, like the town or county
- How (if) you would like to describe your occupation
- Any children or marital relationships we should mention
If you head your comments ‘Confidential’ I will make sure the comments box itself does not get published (I screen all comments coming into this site and I use an automatic ‘Viagra filter‘ – I gets loads of spam!). I will then publish the information you have provided about yourself in the next update of the tree.
