Most of the research in these pages, has been done by my mother, Cynthia, as the 'family history bug' appears to be hereditary!
She was born in 1941, Heston Hounslow to Charles HARVEY and Winifred TRANTER, at that time, the family and extended family had all been born and bred, for at least 3 generations, in the same areas of Kensington, Fulham and Hammersmith.
Over the years, almost all of them have left the London area, mostly to other parts of the country, but some as far afield as Canada and Australia.
As research has progressed we have discovered that the majority of the branches had moved into London during the 1800's. (From Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Norfolk), aswell as have some lines that have been in the area for much longer.
As we live a fair distance from London and people moved about, it has been quite difficult to investigate some lines easily, but as more information becomes available on the internet, especially with the adding of BMD, investigation becomes easier, and more accessible but as with all family history research, there is still so much to discover, so many little tales to hear about, and of course the story will never be finished!
