An introduction to my




You might think why is this site called and not


Well my maiden name was Hudgill.


My father was born and bought up in Epping in Essex from where our variation of the name first originated, our variation on the Hudgell name only changed from the main line of the Hudgell family about 150 years back when Thomas Hudgell was baptised in the name of Hudgell and married in the name of Hudgill and my line was created read more..........

Our surname is not a common one but the name has spread worldwide and is now found in Australia - Canada - New Zealand and South Africa, all of us having the same common ancestor.


Also in America the name seems to have quite a few variations, I have not found the connection to the US Hudgell's yet, but I will!!!!

According to The Office of National Statistics database there were

378 Hudgell's in the UK in 2002

and only 7 Hudgill's

  Genealogy has become my passion.  I find the researching and finding information that is relevant to my search very interesting. 

  In the beginning I wasn't sure of my capabilities in researching my tree.  But thanks to the many people, most of them at first strangers who have now become firm friends and from whom I have been given personal information help and many family photographs to add to the site it now makes it far more interesting for anyone looking to find more about their Hudgell family history.
