to our family website. Like many families in the British Isles we have a
bond with the ancient people of these islands. It has been clearly
proven through the wonders of genetic research, that 80% of the British
people are directly descended from those who settled in these lands after the
last ice age, some 10,000 years ago and the Bronze Age 'Beaker People',
whose culture was represented across Western Europe.
We may these
days be separated by a modern veneer of cultural difference, accent and
language, but we all have those same ancient people as our progenitors.
I would imagine there are not many
people in the British Isles today who do not have forebears from all the
nations that now make up these beautiful islands, which until around
8,000 years ago were still joined to continental Europe by a land
trace our more recent roots to Northumberland, Suffolk, the Scottish Borders, the
of Scotland, and Ireland.
