Index of Data Pages*:

*These new pages are PDF (Portable Document Format) files converting certain parts of my GEDCOM file into webpages with more in-depth genealogical data for research purposes.  The Family Pages are more "skeletal" whereas these "data" pages will offer more complete information about ancestors, such as dates and places of birth and death, as well as marriage information.  Source information is also able to be conveyed.

Since privacy is a concern, these pages should NOT contain information about individuals known to still be living.  If you do find a living individual, please notify me so these can be modified.  I have tried NOT to include anyone living in these data pages, but it is possible a person or two may have slipped through owing to error.

I list these pages here as an index, and the appropriate Data Page will (eventually) be linked to the appropriate Family Page.  These pages require Adobe Acrobat reader, which your computer probably already has, but if not, click the link above to download.  These are listed in alphabetic order by surname.  Most pages are Register Reports, breaking down descendants by generation, and listing information in a logical manner.  Some files may be other types of data pages, such as Outline Descendancy Trees, etc.

I am the List Administrator for the London Surname Listserv on Rootsweb.
Research on this surname is difficult because the city of London, England is often found during searches, so I created this Listserv (London-Surname-L) to allow discussion of STRICTLY the surname of London.  Please see my London page for instructions on how to join.

*Special Notes:

This research/data is by no means flawless.  Some is speculation, some is more sure.  Always do your own research to confirm your suspicions, and hopefully you'll find what you're looking for...I'm always adding new things, but remember that my GEDCOM files will always reflect the latest changes.  The main GEDCOM is located at this link.

I receive numerous Email inquiries about my genealogy research, and although I'm happy to entertain questions, I sometimes don't have a specific answer.  One of the reasons is that some of the names in my GEDCOM got there because I would find a relative or branch in a large file that another researcher had created, and simply assimilate that file into my own, rather than "picking out" my direct line. (**Although I have decreased the size the online files to include only those more closely related, there are many lines that are tangential for me, and thus I am bound to know little about these lines.  My larger file with more unrelated folks has been retired, though I still possess a copy.) 

There are therefore a few  people/surnames that got attached to my large compilation file who I have no relation to (other than by marriage, or another unusual connection) and who I know nothing about.  It was simply easier to merge these files rather than pick apart just those "closely related".  Therefore, I tend to stay within the confines of the specific names listed above as to who I actively research, and therefore I will be unlikely to know about people without these specific surnames.

The Turnbo line (and offshoots) is especially rich in my file, and although I know a good deal about the Turnbo (Turnbough, Turnbow, etc.) line farther back (say before 1815), the fact that my latest Turnbo relative was Jane Turnbo(w), a female born in 1815 (thus her descendants didn't carry the Turnbo surname into my line) makes this family later on "tangential lines" for the most part for me.  Therefore, I'm not apt to know as much about lines in later times because they don't lead to my direct family.  In addition, many of the queries I receive are from researchers of surnames who married into the Turnbo line further down the chain (Cosper and Gates are prime examples.)   Fortunately, much of this has been worked out by other researchers, and should be available via the links on my Turnbough page above.

In addition, I receive queries about people with surnames that I do research, but who don't appear in my file.  Most likely if the person isn't able to be located via my GEDCOM, then I won't have any information.

Thank you very much for visiting, and please feel free to Email me if you have any questions or concerns that you believe I may be of assistance in helping with!  Also, don't forget I'm always open to learning more from those out there who KNOW more than I do!  Truth be known, most of the research herein is derived from others' hard work, and I have simply compiled it into a website. 

Happy Hunting!
