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

Historical and Political people

- accommodated by the project Historic Monmouthshire (Link to follow) which covers the History of Monmouthshire 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 Monmouthshire - Famous People and add them to the listing there.

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.
