Peasants to Puddles

My Family History

By Nicky Rowberry

This website is dedicated to my mother Pamela Rowberry (nee James), without whom I would obviously not be here, but nor would I have got very far with my family history. Sadly Mum has now passed away but her kindness, wit and sense of fun will remain with all of us who knew her - things that are well worth passing down the family tree.

Over the years, I have tried to research all my ancestral lines as far as I could, some with more success than others. In this website I am attempting to display as much of my family history as possible, in the hope that it will be of interest to someone else too! More information is being added regularly, so please come back and check it out again sometime.

This website is designed to work on Internet Explorer. My apologies to those using other browsers, for whom some bits of it might not work, but I'm afraid my computer skills aren't up to getting it to work for all browsers yet.
