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).
