Family History Research
On this page you will find a family tree; this page does not have any photos yet.

If you would like photos of your own Catchlove ancestors to be published on this website
(not living family members for reasons of privacy) please email them to
enquiries@catchlove-research.org with a clear indication of where they fit in the trees.

Alternatively, if you have a photo of a Catchlove ancestor and you don’t know who it is, I’d be happy to publish it in the hope that someone else will recognise them.
Edmund the Wheelwright & William the Chairmaker  

I have combined these two families because while trying to find out what happened to William’s elder brother Edmund, I realised he was Edmund the Wheelwright from what I had previously seen as a separate family, based on census records alone.  As I have found no record yet of any descendants for Edmund the Wheelwright  I have left him where he belongs, as part of the family of Edmund & Ann.  More recently, I realised that Francis bap.1750 was the progenitor of Family 2 (Edmund the Woodman).

Not identified in any other records.
The Fittleworth parish registers 
show the burial of a William LEMMON parishioner of Compton in 1742 and his wife Jane in 1736.  Was Emma Lemmon CATCHLOVE named after maternal ancestors?  It was once common to take a maternal surname as
a middle name.
Doris tells us that the
sailors of the Royal Yacht
were found to have smallpox at that time and as her great grandmother and her husband kept a pub, she most
likely caught smallpox from them.
Her death certificate clearly states that she had previously been vaccinated.

As a ship-wright,
