The History of Shotton - Deeside & The Atkinson Family History




"Not to know what happened before we were born is to remain perpetually a child.

For what is the worth of a human life unless it is woven into the life of our own ancestors?"

Marcus Tullius Cicero

(Roman Statesman & Orator -106 BC - 43 BC)



I hope you will enjoy browsing through my Genealogical research. Maybe you have arrived at this page because we have a common ancestor. If so, I hope you find something useful to assist your own research, and please do get in touch to let me know by using my Contact Form.


My Research is currently divided into 1. The Swindlehursts and 2. The Atkinsons & Blakeboroughs. These are all significant surnames on the Paternal side of my family tree. Soon I also hope to add some details from the Maternal side.
