Abbreviations, Definitions and Notes in the Family Tree
3 March 2015 - 21:32:16

Where I have in the Date eg Dec 1878 this means the birth, marriage or death was registered in that qtr. 
In the notes I put census information and other details. In the female notes you may also find witnesses names at the time of the marriage.
To protect from identity theft, you will be unable to see details of people who are less than 99 years old where I do not have an actual death date.


I subscribe to Ancestry and Findmypast, documents include birth, marriage, death certificates and wills and I have access to information from the British Library India records and Gale Newspaper Archives. I also visit local record offices and lots of churchyards. Plus lots of details sent to me by descendants of families listed on the website.

Blott and Brimson Family History

The Blott and Brimson family into which I was adopted in 1947 was all the family I knew until 2000. When I decided to look into the family tree on my natural side, an uncle said that he had done some work on his grandmother's side a few years before but had lost interest, would I like to carry it forward. He gave me scraps of paper, photos and some documents, so from this the current tree has developed. The Blott family originally came from the Huntingdonshire/Cambridge area before migrating to London.

My Gt Grandmother was a Sandford from Elsenham in Essex. The Blott family in early to mid 1800s were bakers by trade and the daughters seemed to carry on the tradition by marrying bakers. The Blott family later diversified into metal work and clerical occupations.

The Brimson family were agricultural labourers in and around Tiverton, Devon. Finally some of the sons moved in the 1860s to London and 1890s to Cardiff. My grandfather was a London bus driver ‎(picture in the gallery)‎ and other Brimsons became butchers and decorators.

The family tree traces the Blott name back to 17th century and the Brimson to early 18th.

I have researched lots of other names that have married into both families.The Bailey family from Etwall in Derbyshire is the latest line of investigation. It appears that this family of chemists, invented some marvellous medical appliances which can be viewed on the gallery. Francis Bailey emigrated to New Zealand about 1880 and started the Bailey tree there. I am still expanding the Bailey tree with the help of my New Zealand cousin Marie.

One of the Lewis family emigrated to Australia, circa 1900.

I still have masses to find with regard to this family, but I hope you find the information useful and the pictures entertaining.
