Family History

Family History is an interest of mine. I have traced my family back through seven generations to the middle of the 18th century.
This is the gravestone of my 3rd Great Grandparents. they are buried in Staindop, a small village in County Durham.

Staindrop is situated to the east of Barnard Castle, close to Raby Castle the seat of Lord Barnard.

The village has one of the long greens typical of County Durham. The mediaeval church is impressive and contains fine effigies of the Neville family.
