I first started researching my Family Tree in the early seventies.
After a long gap I took it up again in 1996 when I joined the Rugby Family History Group, for which I am now Webmaster and Projects Co-ordinator.
Although I am still interested in my other ancestral families, BURRELL, KNIGHTS, EVERARD as well as HANCOCK and FLETCHER, I became more involved with my paternal MADDER ancestors.
In 2009 I joined the Guild of One-Name Studies and registered the official Madder One-Name Study.
I am also a member of Rugby Local History Research Group.
Apart from family and local history, my main interests are gardens – my own and visiting others and painting.
When I can find the time I enjoy reading – mostly historical fiction.
I am married with two sons and one grandson
