Godwin Genealogy



Many thanks to William Housdon for his meticulous research and for his permission to publish his work on my website. The current family tree is William's as mine is still being compiled. Our family line crosses at William Nethersole Godwin who was born in 1814. Beyond that it's the same down the Godwin line, my tree will be on here in the near future.

There are some great free searches you can do online to trace your ancestors, the following are a couple of the best:

England & Wales Birth, Marriage & Deaths Index 1837 to 1893

IGI - International Genealogical Index

You can view mini biographies gleaned from research of some of my Godwin ancestors by clicking the Biographies link on the left.

There are many names within the family tree, I have broken down the generations into separate web pages for ease of viewing. You can download the tree in word format by clicking here. Alternatively, you can download William's gedcom file by clicking here.
