Family History

About Us
WWI Project
Family History

Members and villagers are happy to help where they can with requests from people researching family history. They are unable to conduct research, but those who remember family connections related to enquiries are happy to share what they know. Please contact us via the email given below if you think we can help.

We have been able to assist people living in Edinburgh, Bristol, Hull, Melbourne, Canada and other areas. We have also advised a number of people whose ancestors' connections were with Laxton, Northants or Laxton, Humberside. Requests are published, with permission, in the parish magazine, 'Open Field' - see .

We have contacts with people outside the village who have researched the following families:

Hewerdine, Merrills, Moody, Rose, Ward, Weatherall, Bennett, Coupe, Sampson

If you are researching any other family and would welcome being linked with anyone who contacts us, please get in touch.

Researchers planning to visit are very welcome to get in touch before they come. We will help them plan to get the most from their visit to the village, including arranging a guided tour if required. There are links to Laxton Visitor Centre and local B&B accommodation on our 'Links' page.

We can suggest public resources where information may be found and can provide information from current residents, but are unable to undertake research.
