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

  • genealogy and family history research, specialising 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.

I have been awarded an IHGS Diploma in Genealogy and am a Member of AGRA.

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.
