SURNAMES of interest in the CADZOW family tree;
Below are the SURNAMES that are of interest to me in the CADZOW branch of my family tree, listed alphabetically (for ease of searching). Where I can, I include a brief summery about each family name, or about individuals in that family; where they lived, their occupations, etc.
Clicking on the highlighted SURNAME will link you to any posts on this website that have been “tagged” as relating to that name. If a SURNAME tag appears to be “broken”, it could be that I haven’t (yet) posted anything onto aFamilyHistoryBlog about that family surname. You are welcome to contact me to check. I would appreciate being alerted if any tags/links aren’t working correctly. Thanks.
For a complete list of all SURNAMES of interest to me in all branches of my family, please see the Surnames of Interest page.
Alternative spelling variations will be shown in italics.

Counties are abbreviated using the Chapman codes. All locations should be read as being located within the British Isles, unless another country is clearly stated. I have set the “dates of interest” quite broad, to try and cover one or more generations on either side of those that I already know of.
[i] [ii] [iii] [iv] [v] [vi] [vii] [viii] – represents the generation of my family tree that the person named belongs to, counting backwards. [i] = my Great Grandparents. [v] = my 5x Gt Grandparents.
At the end of each entry is a note about the kinds of sources that I have for that branch family;
- [FP] = Family Papers, original documents, etc. I generally have high confidence in the accuracy of information from such original sources!
- [MI] = Monumental inscriptions, (gravestones, etc.)
- [PCR] = Parish and/or Census Records.
- [PP] = Publications (books, newspapers, non-family websites, etc)
- [TR] = Family Trees from other people (distant relations), on paper, or online.
- [TBC] = To be confirmed – information that I’m cautious about! Records need checking & original sources finding!
* My sources;
WALKER family notes/papers – various notes and records kept within the WALKER family that I’ve been able to look through.
CADZOW tree – from Libby DUNLOP – who I had contact with via the internet/e-mail in June 2005.
CADZOW tree – from Lionel & Janet BENSON – who I had contact with via the internet/e-mail in June 2005.
1881 Census – viewed on CDR. My own search of the 1881 census, via CDRom.
International Genealogical Index (IGI) – My own searches of the index, used mainly to double-check other sources. Not to be fully relied on by itself. Given the chance I like to look at the OPR microfilms (from which the IGI is transcribed), which tend to contain many more details than the IGI.
My apologies if I’ve missed any particular sources or credits that I should have given. I believe that these are my major sources.
