SURNAMES of interest in the ELLIOTT family tree;
Below are the SURNAMES that are of interest to me in the ELLIOTT 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.
