This is a work in progress and will be continually revised as I get more info. I've started with a series of KELLY families from the 1911 census and will try to connect them while adding in the 1901 census, marriages, gravestones, etc. Many thanks to Lena McVea & Brian Ellison who have spent many hours studying this jigsaw! Brian Ellison also provided most of the information taken from the Glastry registers.FAMILY GROUP A
