Can you help us?

Of the many submissions to the site we have managed to tie in most with the "main"Blackett tree. There are, however, a number of lines where the connection has not been found. These have been added to the tree as separate modules, summarised below, and if you have any further information on them please contact us. Even if your ancestor does not appear in the tree we would still like to hear from you with whatever information you have. Some of the lines previously shown on this page have since been successfully linked to other parts of the tree. If your ancestor no longer appears in the summary below please click on Search in the tree home page to find him or her.

More parish and other records are becoming available online all the time and we do our best to draw on these to provide the link between the various lines of the Blacketts. It is, however, probably a never-ending project, but, as the Blackett family motto puts it, “nous travaillerons en esperance”, which loosely translates from the Norman French as “we will labour in hope”.

Clicking on a link to view a descendancy chart where indicated will open up a notebook-style chart showing 10 generations. If you then wish to increase or reduce the number of generations displayed please select the required number in the Generations box and click View.
