Cheshire - Family Heads

People Connected to Cheshire

People connected to Cheshire can be placed in the following groups.

Historical and Political people


These are accommodated by the project Historic Cheshire which covers the History of Cheshire and historical/political people. Some of these are also listed in the Famous people category.

Famous or Notable People Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown. Those people of note with connections to the county are to be listed in. Cheshire - Famous People

See Monumental Inscriptions and Graveyards of Cheshire

Emigrants

People from Cheshire who went to the "New world" and were early progenitors in those countries. Where the earliest ancestor is known please add them to the list of "Cheshire famiiy heads" on GENi" below if that was their roots, or to the appropriate county project.

Where the earliest known ancestor is the emigrant add them to the list below. In some cases if there is a project that covers them in detail please link the project - there is no point in duplicating the list.

Families with their roots in Cheshire Please add the earliest head of the family to the list of Cheshire Families on Geni below and link their profiles to the project. These should be male! Adding anyone with a Cheshire birthplace to the project would cause the project to be a little cluttered, so please restrict this to the earliest head of family!

Names with Bold links are to Geni profiles. Non-bold links take you to other biographical web pages.
