Boggitt Family Relations

Welcome to the Boggitt Family Relations genealogy website. Browse around and if you have any information from your research relating to the families listed, please contact me.

Background
The site was originally intended to record information on the Boggitt (Yorkshire), Hankinson (Cheshire) and Rushby (Lincolnshire/Yorkshire) families, but rapidly grew to include other lines as well.

The research has been particularly exhilarating - especially when one breaks down the proverbial brick wall - as well as time consuming. I know what I'll be doing when I retire!

Descendents of all the families listed on this site eventually found their way to Canada and the U.S.

Using this Site
Click on the links on the left side of the web page to get to the family you're interested in.

Just a few notes regarding what the abbreviations mean on the site.

b. = birth (i.e. from a census or Free BMD)
c. = christening (from IGI or parish record entries)
IGI = International Genealogical Index from the FamilySearch International Genealogical Service website
Free BMD = Free Birth Marriages and Deaths website

Acknowledgements
First, I must acknowledge my brother who started Boggitt-hunting some 20 years ago. This was well before the Internet and all lookups had to be done in person at the local library of the Latter Day Saints. His work started this whole process and gave me the 'bug' to hunt.

The following people helped with the Rushby side of the family: Peter and Marie.

Thanks to Amanda for clarifying some dates regarding the Leemans. Take a look at her website.

Thanks to my mom for the history gene.

Plus numerous people from the RootsWeb bulletin boards who provided information, guidance in searching, opinions and advice.
