People from Staffordshire 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 "Staffordshire 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 - there is no point in duplicating the list.
Families with their roots in Staffordshire.Please add the earliest head of the family to the list of Staffordshire Families on Geni below and link their profiles to the project. These should be male! Adding anyone with a Staffordshire 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.
