Descendancy Research

Descendancy Research

Descendancy Research is defined by Familysearch as:

the process of finding all the descendants (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and so on) of one of your ancestors.

and the purpose of descendancy research is:

a great way to identify and connect with distant cousins, locate family documents and photos, share stories, and collaborate on research projects.

Familysearch recommends that you choose an ancestral couple who lived in the early to mid-1800s and then research all of their children and all of their descendants.

For the Evison family, the ancestral couple would be William St. Thomas Evison and Lucy Frost.  William St. Thomas and Lucy Frost Evison are my great, great, great grandparents.

William and Lucy had 4 children: Harriet (b: 1832), John (b: 1834), Francis (b: 1836) and William (b: 1839).  All of the children were born in Hogsthorpe, Lincolnshire, England.

Sadly, Harriet and John both died in 1841.  Harriet was 9 years old and John was 7.  And for the past few months, the focus of my blogs has been to document the descendants of William, my great, great grandfather.

So the only other surviving child of William and Lucy Evison was their son, Francis.

For the next month or so, I will be writing about Francis Evison (my great, great uncle) and his descendants.
