If you own a copy of Bryan I’Anson’s book, or if you know of the whereabouts of any other copies, we would like to keep a record.

In the inside of the back of the book there is a large fold out family tree of the family from John of Hauxwell. It largely follows the family lines that he mentions in the book and over the last few years we have been able to add in many people that have been in touch with us. We have 1000’s of names in our growing database and if you send in your details we’ll see if we can link you in!

In the meantime- for the first time, we can make this tree available as a pdf I’Anson book tree pdf. Let us know what you think- and now there is no need to own a book, as we have the whole book on pdf below;
