found the said John Tittensor and have traced the family back

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,

| Visitor's Name: Maxwell
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

||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

origins of this surname. My boyfriend (and hopeful husband)
is a BAGNELL. His grandmother pronounced the name as BAG-null.
My boyfriend's mother began saying the name as BAG-nell because
too many people would struggle with the spelling. I wonder
how other Bagnell/Bagnall's prefer to pronounce the name?

||Hello!! I'm still looking for ANY information on William
M. BAGNALL b. Scotland 1820's married to Jane Grant (born
in Glasgow) daughter of John Grant and Christina Fisher. 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

||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

||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.
