How to use this Page

  1. Please link any GENI Profiles with links to Somerset to this project.
  2. You can ALSO add the earliest heads of families to the list of Somerset Families on Geni below (don't forget to link their profiles to the project as well). These would usually be male! Please restrict people added to the list to the earliest head of family!

Note People with links to Somerset can be linked to the project but not necessarily added to the list below.

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

Historical and Political people

- accommodated by the project Historical Somerset which covers the History of Somerset and historical/political people. Some of these are also listed in the Famous people category.

Famous or Notable People

Those people of note with connections to the county are listed below. Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown! Please visit Somerset - Famous People and add them to the listing there.

Emigrants

People from Somerset 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 "Somerset families 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.

  • Hugh de Hull 1457-1379)
  • William Hussey (c.1030-1086) from Normandy, died in Somerset. It is presumed that he accompanied William the Conqueror in his invasion of England and participated in the Battle of Hastings in 1066. It is suggested that he held land in Somersetshire, probably Sanford Manor, as his portion of the spoils of conquest. He and his brother, Walter Hussey were listed as residents of Somersetshire in 1080 living in the vicinity of Bath, according to "Doomesday Book".
