GREY line family tree charts

The GREY line is headed up by William Adamthwaite (born before 1750) who married Jane DEVIS in Brough under Stainmore in 1769.  We have not yet identified William's birth or baptisms - unfortunately this is a period when there are thought to be a number of missing records, perhaps due to the number of Dissenting Adamthwaites living in this part of Westmorland at that time.  


We know that a number of descendants of this line migrated to Canada and Australia, but there may still be some living in England.


As with all our family tree charts, no information is shown for living individuals. 













NOTES: As these are all very wide charts, they will open as JPEG images - you will need to enlarge the size of the image until the print is legible and then scroll across to the right to view all the details.


Although I maintain records using Legacy Family Tree software, these charts were produced using the Wall Chart feature of RootsMagic and converting the .rmg images to JPGs.  You should be able to download any of the trees from the website by right-clicking the image and selecting 'save' - however most images are too large to be legible when reduced to fit on a standard A4 sheet.  I have had some success taking a CD of these images to a local photocopy shop and getting them printed on A1 paper.


I am currently in the process of  producing new charts for all lines with Legacy Charting.  If you notice any errors or omissions, please contact me and I will make the necessary corrections as I update all the charts.
