Comments: Well done Stuart!! My grandmother was a Bagnall, coming from Burslem. Her father was Edwin Bagnall and his father was James. However, James then gives HIS father's name at John Tittensor!!

You are from: New Zealand
Comments: Stuart, thank you for your page of Bagnall's and thank you for the Christmas Greeting and Bagnall Hall in winter. We (my wife Sylvia and our 3 boys, then aged about 11, 12, 13) visited Bagnall in 1984. It was the only 'real' English village we saw! (According to imagined our stereotype.) Hope to get back there some day. I still have to scan Bagnall Village photos into my boutique photo library that is behind the URL above. My father, Graham Bagnall, was working on a history of our branch of the NZ Bagnall's when he died in 1984. We had hand set and printed about 20 pages at that time but have unfortunately been unable to finish it, largely because the manuscript was being written as we set and printed! But someday we bring the project to an (incomplete) close. Dorothy Bagnall, in Auckland, has produced a detailed account of the other collection of Bagnalls. Both lines go back to the Black Country and the history on this site. Charles Wellington, NZ

Visitor's Name: Maxwell Owen Andrae
You are from: Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54494
Comments: My Mother's maiden name was Bagnall. I have traced the Bagnall family in Dublin to John Bagnall who died about 1849. He owned two businesses Dublin. We think his Father's name was Robert? My line is directly from one of his sons, George Smyth Bagnall b. 1805 in Dublin, he moved to Frampton, Quebec in about 1835, from thence the Bagnall family, many of them, came to Jacksonport, Wisconsin, Door County. One of George's brother's was "Thomas Bagnall he had a daughter named Ann Bagnall and she married aThomas Prescott in Dublin. I would love to find a living descendant of the Prescott line in Dublin. We were told that the Bagnall family originall came from Stafordshire, but we have no proof. I have had Brian Smith do some research but not much there, excetp the marriage of Ann Bagnall to Thomas Prescott in about 1849. Nice to hear the name Bagnall. thank you so much, Max Andrae

I don't know a lot of my family history other than my grandfather William Bagnall came over to Canada from England. Since my grandfather passed away while I was still quite young, I never got to hear any stories of where he was from. He married Emma Anderson in Saskatchewan, Canada, moved to Thunder Bay Ontario. They had 2 sons, Donald and Lloyd. Donald had 4 children, Richard, Elaine, Sharon and Rory. Lloyd had 2 children, Stuart and Scott. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who may be related, or who can give me direction on how to research my family history. Thanks again.

Comments: well where do i start? On info from my parents, my grandparents originate from Derbyshire/Stoke/Yorkshire area, but it has been researched that, going further back, we partook in the wars between French/Eire as Sir Henry Bagnall, - does that mean anything to anyone?. Apparently we were very "important" in Eire at one point, actually owning a very sizeable chunk of Eire. Believe - typical of my luck - that we had to flee Eire and lost our papers on the crossing over therefore losing our ownership of our land in Eire. Anyone know anything about what i have said?. This was given to me as 2nd hand info many yrs ago when I was young. Another possibility for the fleeing from Eire was that a relative that settled on Stoke-on-Trent area had become pregnant by a squire from Eire - not something that was "done" in those days. Anybody any ideas on this (apparently, over the top, but told as believed true)story

William and Jane had three children Robert Grant, Christina, and William M. The family business seems to have been that of bakers and confectioners. William came to the U.S. in the 1840's and Jane and Robert followed after. The other children were born in the U.S. While in Richmond, VA there were other Bagnalls who worked and lived with William and Jane, but we do not know their connection - John Bagnall,and James Bagnall. ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Comments: Hello fellow Bagnell/Bagnall's. Searching for THOMAS BAGNELL, born around 1821. We know he ended up in Canada and married Jerusha Tapley in 1853. Have just come back from Bagnall in Staffordshire. Very pretty village. Local pub very welcoming and good food,(although the choice of music left something to be desired). Managed to speak to the landlady that had held the Stafford Arms for 25 years, but she was unable to tell us much about the history of Bagnall. All she could say was that a family by the name of Grindon owned a lot of land and had been there for generations. Had a walk around the cemetary, only found 3 headstones with the name Bagnell, but unfortunately not linked to out Thomas. Enough of the rambling, we didn't find what we were looking for. Should anyone know of THOMAS BAGNELL born around 1821 we should love to hear from you.

Comments: Great site. I learned a great deal..... I am a Bagnell by marriage. The line that I now belong to came to Gabrus, Nova Scotia in 1750's with General Wolfe for the second battle of Fort Louiseburg, when the English took the fort from the French. The men that fought were then allowed to claim land to settle. Our people went south of the fort to a inlet now called Gabrus. The family has always lived there until my father-in-law left there at the end of WWII to go to Toronto Ontario. When he was young , he said that all the families on his street were called Bagnells, not all of them were close relastions.........I will be back to your site again.

Interesting and hopefully rewarding site. My mother, nee Lyle Bagnall, b.1892 Cannock, Staffordshire told me in about 1938, that her grdfthr. James, b.1843, Betley, Cheshire, told her that family name was deBagenhal or deBagenholt, traceable to Sir Rafe deBagenhal of Staffordshire. Bagnall family lived in Betley from approx.1400. Name was evolved from deBagenhal or deBagenholt to deBagnall about 1400. I'll be pleased to hear from any "Betley Bagnall's" or others who may be linked.

Hi, married into Bagnall family. South Western Australia. Original families of Bagnalls came out to Australia to farm the land in the South. Sheep etc. Some names I remember mentioned are Grace, Edward(Ted) Walter. Interesting sight so far. Will read more of it shortly.

I am searching for relatives of my father Stephen Richard Bagnall 1897-1961, whose father was also Stephen Richard Baganll 1863-1928. My grandfather arrived in Australia with, I think about 5 siblings probably in early 1870's after the death of his parents in an accident in Dublin, Ireland. A sister of his Elizabeth (born 1855) married John O'Duffy and remained in Dublin Ireland. The family who came to Australia was I think, Thomas, Henry, Jane, Margaret, and Delphina and my grandfather Stephen. I think my great-grand father was Henry Francis Bagnall who was married to Catherine (Kate) Brereton in 1855. Can anyone in the "Bagnall" family connected to any of these names - it would be great to hear from you.
