About the Book

I have been doing my family tree for well over thirty years; it is quite vast. It got to the stage when revising its content, I realized it was all names and dates basically, probably quite boring especially to the younger generations. Therefore I went back to the beginning and started to research individuals and their times and events, then adding them to the tree. I then found it was like reading a book and was quite interesting, with the result that I wrote a completely separate story from the tree. I then added photos that were also of interest to the content. The book starts in the mid-1600s, tracing a fishing family right up to 1947, including hardships, disasters, tragedies, WWI, and WWII. But the story can equally apply to anybody with fishing roots (just change the names). I think it is a heritage to be recorded and should not be lost.
