Light GREEN line family tree chart

This line is headed by a John Adamthwaite and Margaret Hunter - who ran a school in Bowes for a number of years.  When John died in 1817, his memorial stone recorded that he was 'a native of Ravenstonedale' - however we have been unable to find a likely baptisms amongst the Ravenstonedale registers in around 1776 when he would have been born (according to his age at death).  This line seems to have 'daughtered out' in the 1860s - but we would be delighted to hear from any descendants who can tell us otherwise!


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.
