Welcome to my genealogy web site.

My name is Jim King and I created and maintain this site.

I have researched the information here over a good few years, mainly via websites like and It ends up being quite a lot of detective work and some records are not yet as complete as I would like them.

There are over 1,000 individuals identified on this site and where possible I have tried to verify that the data shown is accurate, though I would be naive in saying it is 100%, there will be erroneous information but will be based on best investigation of researched information. Often data has been retrieved from other users trees, and therefore I am reliant on their validation for accuracy.

Tools like the "Bonkers Report" above show where possible inconsistencies may occur and I may well find other error reporting tools along the way and I will publish their results.

Snippets of information can be intriguing and amusing for example my great grandfather William King was a plumber and lived at number 50 Flood Street in London! Great great grandfather William Lewis, the local inn keeper, was mugged and killed and there is a Lewis Lane named after him in the village of Appleshaw in Hants. There is a record of a Harriet Hines marrying a John Beane, could this have been the origin of Heinz beans? :-).

If you have any information, corrections, updates or photos I would love to hear from you.

I hope you find it useful and enjoy exploring...
