I am an experienced professional genealogist based in Taunton, Somerset, and offer a range of services including:

  • genealogy and family history research in archives in Devon, Somerset, and other counties in southwest England

  • transcription and abstracting of old handwritten documents

  • tracing living people, particularly for family history purposes

  • providing advice on genealogy and family history problems for people who prefer to carry out their own research.

My services are aimed at clients who need specialist help in the above categories. I do not offer family tree 'packages'  and if you are looking for a professional genealogist to research your family tree from scratch there are many other AGRA Members and Associates who carry out such work.

I was awarded an IHGS Diploma in Genealogy in 2008 and have been a Member of AGRA since 2009.

AGRA Member

AGRA (the Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives) is the organisation for professional genealogists in England and Wales. Only AGRA Members, who have undergone a formal assessment of their competence, are permitted to use the AGRA logo (there is also an Associate grade).

As well as details of my services as a professional genealogist, there is also information on this website about my research into the ancestry of William Davenport, an ancestor of Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge.
