Welcome to my Family History Home page.  The main names that I am researching into at the moment are Cadman,(originating from Bulkington, Warwickshire), Smedley, (Leicestershire and Derbyshire), Payne (Leicestershire, Yorkshire and Derbyshire) and Udall - you will also find several other names on the pages. I look forward to E-Mails from anyone who would like to share or talk about our family history.

The latest “Our Family History” DVD  is now in production.  There are many developments, updates, corrections and new items of interest this year.  If you would like copies please send me an E-Mail to let me know at:

Health Warning

Family History Starts as an Interest

Becomes a hobby

Continues as a vocation

Takes over as an Obsession

And in the latest stages

Is an incurable disease !
