"All the knowledge in the world is of no use to fools"
Scope of this website
All entries since 1783 have at least two verifications even if they are not stated on the records here. All records between 1664 and 1783 have one verification which is usually a marriage or christening.
Family tree research is often devious and convoluted in its machinations due simply to the amount of tree branching which occurs over the years. This site is unfortunately no exception but to minimize this and trace direct lines of ancestry the following parameters have been applied:
1. On the main JENNINGS lineage only direct ancestry has been included, albeit with a limited amount of side tree branching - even so over 660 individuals are recorded so far, Jennings is sometimes rarely spelt using the variation Jenings
Earliest POTENTIAL Entries: , The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Roger Jonyng, which was dated 1296, in the Subsidy Rolls of the county of Sussex, during the reign of King Edward 1, known as "The Hammer of the Scots", 1272 - 1307.Walter Jannes and Richard Janyns in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire of 1327, and Thomas Jenyn, in the charter rolls of 1428
Some very recent research ( December 2018) is just bringing to light a connection with the POUNTNEY family based in alverley,shropshire around 1560-1590
William Jennings christened on 3rd April 1664 in Malpas St.Oswald,? ( but he must have had parents! ) plus John Jennings, born in 1680* verified ..This is still an ongoing research area
ST. CHADS, WYBUNBURY
2. On the CRAMER-THORNTON lineage a great deal of research was undertaken by relatives other than the cousins who collated this main site. We have attempted to doubly verify all reproduced data and have omitted a vast amount of unverified data. This section is incomplete until we receive an updated Thornton ancestry
3. Names of towns and counties are as shown in the records consulted. This can vary as - for example, South Cheshire and North Shropshire are only separated by fields in many areas - some fields even cross the boundary which itself has moved over the years. Some villages and townships have frequently been redesignated.
4. Names have often been anglicized. The CRAMER-THORNTON lineage is extremely mixed with ancestors from at least six different countries (Germany, France, Ireland, Scotland, England, U.S.A.) So Kramer=Creamer=Cramer=Kremer and Clapper=Klapper
5. All descendants of Donald Jennings ( 1924 - 1993 )have been temporarily redacted
6. To prevent abuses of our data many extant Canadian members have not been listed
The individuals of the named families connected in the Jennings current tree are numbered in parenthesis. Data on many living individuals has been restricted or omitted
