Latest News and Updates

05 December 2018 - Today I have uploaded the latest version of my website as there have been three major changes:-

1. TNG has been updated to version 12.0.2.
2. All data now comes from my New Desktop Genealogy Software.
3. Approximately a further 2500 people have been added.

The changeover from the Old Desktop Software has been a bit more time consuming than I first thought and there are still some changes pending but hopefully most of the obvious problems have been eliminated. If you should notice any problems then please let me know.

I would like to wish everyone A Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year.

28 June 2018 - Just an update to say that the transfer etc is going fine but a little slower than anticipated especially as it has included the update of TNG to version 12. Please bear with me.

Welcome to the Website

This started out as a record of my Hooley Family of Cheshire, where most of the family lived in the Macclesfield and Stockport area. But like many families of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries branches were established throughout the UK and in Australia, South Africa and USA to mention a few.

The main line for My Family is built on my parents Fred Hooley (1906-1987) and Gertrude (Trudie) May Baxter (1913-1996). Unfortunately I've hit a "brick wall" with Fred's Grandfather James Hooley (1827-1918) as to who his actual parents were. As I progressed in trying to break down this wall by researching more Hooley's from Cheshire, more and more Hooley's and associated lines appeared. So this site has now developed into a Cheshire wide research project. No doubt some of these lines will move across to my family tree once connections are found.

At the moment there are two trees, the Hooley-Baxter Tree which is my Family Tree and the Research Tree which picks up the other Hooley's and associated lines. It is the intention that these other lines will eventually be allocated to their own discrete trees. It will be seen that through the ages the surnames Hooley/Hulley/Howley are freely interchangeable and in many cases even within a single family. As I do not reside in the UK any help with this research would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I wish to give special thanks to Ray Hulley for without his help this research would not have advanced so far. I would also like to thank my second cousin Frank Hooley, and also Frances Goddard and Ron Hooley for their invaluable help on the Australian side.
