Welcome to my Genealogy Web site!

UK Map with Warwickshire highlighted

I am passionately interested in my family history.  My Rawbone family - and it's variants - appears to stem from the lovely English county of Warwickshire.  The 1881 census lists 70 Rawbones in Warwickshire, 26 in Middlesex and 21 in Gloucestershire.

It's most famous son was, arguably, William Shakespeare.  One of my Rawbone relatives maintained that the original family arrived in England with the Huguenots but this is still to be proven.  Even with an unusual surname such as Rawbone, there are hundreds - if not thousands, including it's variants - world wide.  We know the name occurs in America, Australia, France, South Africa and New Zealands.  Currently, there are a few minor overseas links to my family, however one day ....
