The Catley Database

This database relies on contributed submissions. If you have or find any information which is not already in the database in parish registers, poor law records, trade directories, memorial inscriptions, wills, immigration and shipping records, etc., please submit it. These will enable the database to become a major resource for everyone interested in researching their Cat[t]ley roots.

Please note that the database contents represent the efforts of a large number of collaborators and that requests for further information about a particular items should be addressed to the submitters of those items and not to the database administrator.

The data is displayed in date order with the Forename highlighted and the Surname spelling recorded as it appears in the source document. Standard Chapman codes have been used for County or Country abbreviations.
