My Family Tree

Other Moorcroft Trees

Welcome, I have been an avid family history researcher for over 10 years, with breaks here and there. I have begun the Moorcroft Tree so many times, but I always get stuck and go off and find an easy piece of research to do. On New Years Eve 2010, a friend showed me my Grandad's butchers shop in Burton-upon-Trent and thats it I was hooked again. All the websites have made it so much easier and quicker, however, I am still foxed in the same places. To get to the bottom of it once and for all, I started to put together a spreadsheet of all Moorcroft data I can find,  to link in the BMD, with the Census and some IGI family search results and other information I have found, like wills. To date this spreadsheet contains 1074 Births, covering mainly the Midlands but also some of the Lancashire Moorcrofts and some from the South. I will continue to add to this database over time, but for now I am still loading in Census information from Derby.

The spreadsheet earliest record is Wyllyam Morecraft who married Maragryt Smyth on 20th September 1578 in Church Broughton, Derbyshire with the records including up to 1915.
