This site is a work in progress as a compilation of Maughan, Dummett and related family histories. We welcome any input or insight you may have after having a look around. There are over one hundred family names listed throughout the various pages of the site, so please browse the list on the main surnames history page to see if any might be of interest to you. Thanks for dropping by and we hope you enjoy a browse through the site.


The website has just gone through a complete overhaul moving to a cleaner and more browser-agnostic css base to make the site both easier to read and navigate. There may be some broken links / blank pages that have not crossed over to the new format. The goal is to complete the transition by the end of 2016.

While the site is intended to pass along information, some of the work here has been done by individual contributors and used with permission. Please do not incorporate any of the material on this site into any other work (apart from saving a copy for your files) as that would be a breach of copyright. All of the images on this site are either the property of the site owner, or are rights-free. Thank you for your adherence to this policy.
