LATEST : 1 May 2020 - "The Railway Children" revised and updated
The site contains family history information relating to my and my wife's ancestors plus some stuff related to my other interests.   I've also included various articles I have prepared relating  mainly to Calvert families in the Great Harwood area.

My interest in family history is relatively recent although my sister, Barbara, did quite a bit of research back using parish records in the 1960's. This was lost, however, with her death in 1984.

The Calverts are centred around Great Harwood in East Lancashire. (although one branch seems to have spent time in Ireland and others emigrated to USA and Tasmania ). There are links here to Barons, Hindles, Hargreaves and Shaw families.  
The Browns are my mother's family and are from Sheffield/Lincolnshire.
The Churchhouses (my wife's family) lived in Preston, although one branch lived on a canal boat and travelled the Lancaster canal between Preston and Kendal.
The Yeates (my wife's maternal family) latterly lived around Preston, although they came from Gloucestershire via a circuitous route (read The Railway Children on the Yeates pages for the story).

The Heywood and Kitching tree, my cousin's maternal ancestors, have now been removed to
