Massy-Dawson and Poore Pedigrees

Published in 1937 for Private Circulation

There is a copy in the British Library, Integrated Catalogue, Humanities Collection, Shelfmark 9920.d.2, 178 pp

Extracted here are entries relating to the marriage of Robert Bomford and Maria Massy-Dawson (15.5), her forbears and their descendents.

The book contains some 22 family trees, and alphabetically organised text entries for each person in the trees.  Only six of the trees have been used in producing the pedigrees below, so there is information in the book on many more people than is given here.  In the book, entries for married women are under their married name, which makes them difficult to trace unless you have the trees.  Names have been changed here to maiden names.

Entries stop with publication of the book in 1937, so no death date is given for people who were alive then.

The text has been scanned from photocopies and may contain transcription errors.
