Marchant Family Tree
My Marchant family originates from Luppitt, a small village about 4 miles north of Honiton in Devon, England. Early spelling alternated from Marchant to Merchant.
My grandfather, Tom Marchant moved from Devon to London in the 1890's and married my grandmother, Ellen Hooker from Dogmersfield, Hampshire.
I have traced the Marchants back to the early 1700's and all descendents from the earliest Merchant/Marchant can be found from the surname link in panel on the left. Similarly, I have traced the Hookers back the early 1800's in Hampshire.
I then began tracing my mother's parents with the surnames Desborough and Webb and when I could get no further began on my four great-grandmothers' maiden names, Impey Merridon, Newman and Ham.
My great-grandmother Jane Newman re-married on the death of her first husband into the Crumplin family.
With a number of other earlier links into the Crumplin family I have also researched that surname as well.
The Crumplin family originates in Hampshire and with a good number of the parish records surviving and the surname being fairly rare, most Crumplins in the UK can be linked to this tree.
Descendents from the earliest Crumplin number in excess of a thousand.
While I have tried to be as accurate as possible I am sure there will be errors on the linked pages.
