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.
