Welcome to my web site, I hope you find my site useful and easy to use.
This web site was designed to give a precis of my family history, which has over 3,500 individuals in the family tree. All of the individuals have been authenticated by proving their birth, marriage and death. My family go back six generations in Kenilworth and lived on the Castle Green for over 100 years. Before that Beausale and surrounding area for 300 years.
I have been recording the local history of my home town of Kenilworth for over 50 years. This includes many of the old houses which the people of Kenilworth have trusted me with their deeds, and let me document the inside and out side of the properties. The restoration of many parts of the castle and in particular the Gatehouse. To try and restore some of the old antiquities of the town such as the Borrowell and Milestone in Warwick Road, a plaque to Betsy Smith's Grave opposite Rouncil Lane, The Pound.
I have been licensed for 35 years as a radio ham, and held a class "A" license since 1997. I have worked all over the world using a satellite, and since 1997 when the conditions are favourable I am able to make contacts with other amateurs all over the world even Antarctica.
In recent years I have written eight books, in May 2015 my eighth book was sold out. Kenilworth in Camera III is a collection of over 220 photographs, the majority of the illustrations have not been published in book form and together show how the Town has changed. The price of the soft backs is £10, (see below).
I Have just acquired 2000 photo's of Warwickshire many on Inns, large family Houses, Churches and Rectories. I hope to produce a book on old Public Houses and Inns of Warwickshire. New slide show added click on the link (Slide Show of Warwickshire.).
