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 would usually be male! Anyone else with links to Cheshire can be linked to the project but not added to the list below - please restrict people added to the list to the earliest head of family!

People connected to Cheshire can also be linked to the following projects.

Historical and Political people

These are accommodated by the project Historical 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


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 family 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
