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
email@example.com 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.
This is yet another family which is very small and whose origins remain speculative. John the Gamekeeper first appears in the 1851 census living in lodgings and it appears that his son William never married, so it looks like this line died out. Aldsworth is a hamlet that lies halfway between Westbourne and Lordington.
