The Babbs of Gloucestershire, England

ian-henry-babbIt’s Wednesday, so this must be Gloucestershire!

OK, I know Devon comes next alphabetically, but Devon is a beast with 31 of the 74 pedigrees. So, I’ve decided to come back to that at the end of this series.

Sometimes referred to as Gloucester, this county takes in the tip of the Bristol Channel and the delta of the River Severn, which is the largest riven in England.

The county is home to 2 Pedigrees. Once again you will note the close proximity of the two trees, both originating in the town of Bristol. Smart readers may note that Bristol is both a city that is also a county these days. It has become one of Southern England’s 2nd largest city. But that wasn’t always the case. It lies on the border of both Somerset and Gloucestershire Counties having been included in records for both at various times. Ian and I have chosen to show them in their historical county, to help reduce confusion. But realize they are very likely related to the Somerset Babbs (more on them later).

The Babbs of Cornwall, England

ian-henry-babbContinuing my series about the Babbs throughout England, we now come to the county of Cornwall, which is the very South West tip of England. Cornwall borders Devon, which is where the lion share of Babbs in the country originate. So, it is an important component to understand the big picture.

Here we find an even dozen Pedigrees (4 large trees and 8 minor ones), which are lettered instead of numbered, like the large ones are. Ian left no descriptions of his exact reasoning in how he named and numbered them, but it doesn’t matter. He was very thorough! Note that once again these trees are very likely to eventually be united as the locations are tightly clustered with only St. Dominick (sometimes Dominic) being only 14 miles (22 KM) away from the rest. All of the locations are close to the Devon border.

The Babbs of Buckinghamshire, England

ian-henry-babbAlong with the extensive collection of Ian Babb’s papers, was a USB Pen Drive that included what appears to be 74 English Pedigrees that he outlined prior to his death. They were the culmination of his lifetime of research and a key to understanding the remainder of his work.

Each Pedigree is sorted into the corresponding county where it originates. Many of these disparate trees are no doubt connected, but the paper trail didn’t exist for him to link them together. So, he tracked them separately to make sure he covered virtually every Babb in England somewhere in these files. He was not able to add source information to these files before his passing, but the structure of the family units and key dates are included.

Technology has come a long way in the 7 years since he worked on these and source information is far easier to connect than it used to be. So, I’ve been working hard to get those included before I release them to the public. Some files are large and some are just fragments that he wanted to keep track of. I’ve taken the added step of normalizing the place names, so they can be searched across and I’ve also dropped a header entry for each line that discusses the lines name, origination date and location.

Somewhere in these 74 Pedigrees lays the cousins and ancestors of each of our lines in the US. Having this big picture will allow us through process of elimination to match them up and transform our search.

Once we have the pedigrees updated and imported into the Master File, we will be able to start looking for commonality. We hope to reunite many of these lineages using a combination of old fashioned research, social media & DNA testing to prove these lines out and prove our theories.

So with that, let me introduce you to the first 3 Pedigrees which make up the Babb Families of Buckinghamshire, England. Buckinghamshire is just to the North and West of London and is often loosely referred to as Bucks or Buckingham. Follow the links below to review the Descendants of each line:

You will notice that these families are likely related. The early cities mentioned are a mere 8 miles (13 Kilometers) apart and very close to Heathrow Airport. Proving them out is the long term goal of this project.

Watch for additional posts like this one for other counties as I have them completed.

Announcement: Ian Babb & Jean A. Sargent- Papers now available online

I’m so pleased to present to you the collected papers of Ian Babb. Which are now available online. The 5683 page collection represents the lifetime of research conducted by Ian on the Babb Families of England. For those of you who aren’t familiar with his work, he is the English equivalent of Jean A. Sargent, who researched the English Babbs of America. Ian researched the Babb’s in England and it is my goal to unite their work using the power of DNA research that will finally bring answers on how to connect the 74 known pedigrees of Babbs of English origin that have now spread across the world.

As a bonus, you will also have access to the 17,583 pages of Jean Sargent’s work, which we previously digitized in 2014.

We have made each file searchable and provided Job Aids that will help you navigate this immense collection, which is 23,266 pages in all!

babb-family-collectionThe world of technology has changed immensely over the last few years allowing you to have something that neither Jean nor Ian had…which was access to each other’s work. We have deemed this compilation, the Babb Family Collection.

We are excited to offer this to you this complete online collection for just $75 USD (60 GBP). For the first time we have secured an online payment option for you via PayPal at http://paypal.me/babbunabridged.

 

Note: Access to the collection will be secured via your Microsoft Account. For Windows 10 users, this is the same ID you use to login to Windows. Also anyone with an Outlook.com or Hotmail.com address already has one of these. If you don’t already have a Microsoft account, instructions on how to create one are below:

The DNA Waiting Game brings a new season

Good News! A new test kit has been received from one of the Somerset England Babbs. So we start back up on our most popular game show. This time, I’ve taken the time and trouble to map out the connection I expect to see before having the test conducted. So, hopefully we will get the result we are expecting.

We won’t know the results until just before the Christmas holiday, so keep your fingers crossed for a special Christmas gift that will unite one of the largest lineage of Babb’s in England!

The Document Dump

I’ve been busily at work since my return from England and am nearing the home stretch on the digitization of the collected papers of Ian Babb (pictured). There is a technique used by corporations and politicians alike to dump a large number of documents about an unsavory situation, just before the weekend in hopes that the general public won’t pick up on it. This is just the opposite, but I can’t help but think of the term due to the mammoth size of this collection spanning 5683 Pages.

I wanted to ian-henry-babbput some shape to the collection for you, so have included a draft copy of the finding aid that will be employed to help others understand what is available and how to leverage it. I’m moving into a feedback period before finalizing the list and publishing the work.  So, please let me know if you see something that appears to be amiss. You will notice from the beginning how vast the collection is. There is actually more. We also found a disk containing 71 pedigree trees assembled by Ian that I hope will provide a foundation for our next steps in reunifying the US and English Babbs. More about that later.

As soon as I complete the feedback cycle, I’ll move towards finalization of the list below and publication. The world of Genealogy has been turned upside down over the last ten years due to the price and availability of technology that puts projects like this within reach of the common man. I plan to bring you something that Ian himself would be proud of! So without further delay, here is a draft copy of the index to Ian Babb’s Papers.

DRAFT: Babb Family Association Collection

Ian Babb – Papers

SCOPE AND CONTENT: Genealogical materials compiled by Ian Henry Babb on the Babb Families in England. Full Copyright has been granted to the Babb Family Association. Mr. Babb passed away 20 November 2014. There are 11 Boxes and 31 Binders in the collection containing 5683 pages in all. Numbering started with Box 101 and Binder 101, to eliminate confusion with the collected papers of Jean A. Sargent whose research was primarily based in the United States. This inventory was last updated 16 November 2016. Each of the files has been made into a searchable PDF and a handy finding aid is provided below.

The Babb Family Association has funded the digitization of the collection. Not every folder was digitized due to copyright issues with some materials. These files will be searchable PDFs except for hand written items and photos, which will not be searchable.

As of the date of issue, the point of contact for the Association is Mr. Daniel Greig Babb, c/o The Babb Family Association, 3723 Northview Lane, Dallas, Texas 75229. He also maintains http://babbunabridged.com   and the Facebook Group “Babb Family Association.”

BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL: The Babb family has roots in England and in Bavaria. It has not been determined how the two lines are connected. This collection focuses on the English Babbs whose roots are found throughout England. Pedigrees that Ian believed could be connected to others are represented by letters, while core Pedigrees are represented by numbers. They are identified by their county of origin as follows:

  • Buckinghamshire (Pedigrees 1-3)
  • Cornwall (Pedigrees 1-4 and A-H)
  • Devon (Pedigrees 1-31)
  • Gloucestershire (Pedigrees 1-2)
  • Hampshire (Pedigree 1)
  • Leicestershire (Pedigree 1)
  • London (Pedigrees 1-4 and A-C)
  • West Midlands (Pedigrees 1-4)
  • Somerset (Pedigrees 1-4)
  • Staffordshire (Pedigrees 1-6)

 

 

CITE AS: Babb Family Association Collection, Ian Henry Babb – Papers, Babb Family Association, Dallas, TX. USA 75229.

ORGANIZATION:

Folders in each box have been assigned a number. In some instances, there are subfolders within a folder in the boxes. The collection was not broken down and organized throughout into subfolders, so in many instances there will only be the main subject folder. Numbers after names correspond with the numerology of the Babb lines listed above. The numbering follows the system established by Ian Henry Babb. Folders/Binders not specifically called out to a county should be considered to contain documents from a variety of counties. The entire collection is roughly 5683 pages and the scanning is a monumental task, so we appreciate your understanding about the limitations.

Some of the material in particular folders was NOT digitized due to ownership/copyright issues. Any works that were previously copyrighted by other authors will continue along the schedule established by their author, though most have passed into the public domain.

1000 Pages Deep

I’ve now made it to Birmingham, England and spent my jet lagged day working with Cherida to get assess the collected papers of her late brother Ian and to start the work needed to begin digitalization. Having done a few test runs and with a little trial and error we are now 1000 pages into the project. Our initial scans are mostly oversized documents which require special handling. There are roughly 2000 more pages of these and almost 100 binders with an array of documents in them. The binders should go more quickly as they are A4 Paper (similar to Letter size) and will fit easily into the scanner.

It’s a race against time, with only 3 days left to work on completing this task. I’m off to bed to get an early start tomorrow!

Cheers!
