Ivan Hurst's exploration of Genealogy

Tithe Apportionment - Whiteparish

Tithe Apportionment - Parish of Whiteparish, Wiltshire

There is a possibility that some of my ancestors lived there and migrated from there.

That requires further investigations.

This is part of those investigations. There are three main streams, one is via ESRI ArcGIS StoryMap and another other a spreadsheet based database. The third is the normal family tree, both in Ancestry and TNG. The TNG list of the people of Whiteparish currently starts with Elizabeth born in 1565.

 A child with the surname Hurst was born in 1564, and Edith Hurst was born in 1566, both in Whiteparish. The question of are these people related remains un-answered at the moment.

The StoryMap is below, and the spreadsheet full of interesting records below that. The Story Map Tithe Apportionment Parish of Whiteparish can also be open in a new window by clicking on the link. 

Depending on your computer and your internet connection you may have to be a little patient and allow the StoryMap time to load the maps and images.
