Hants Hampshire England

Welcome to Knightroots a website on the Knight family and an online Hampshire genealogical resource. We are Linda and Tony Knight and we live near Southampton, United Kingdom.
We have been interested in our family history for some time now and have over 5000 names on our joint family tree. Our research interests include Hampshire, Dorset, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Sussex, Staffordshire and the Isle of Wight as well as Scotland,
Ireland, Wales, Massachusetts and India.

One of the main features of this site is the online transcription section that is located in the Hampshire OPC section, designed to help other people searching for names in their family tree. We hope that you find this useful. Records are being added from our own resources, as a result of Record Office visits and transcriptions from other volunteers.. Please note that while some of the the transcriptions on this website are only partial transcriptions, there are some registers have been completely transcribed.

Viewing this data cannot ever replace checking the original data from either a verification point of view and researchers should ALWAYS endeavour to view original registers whenever and wherever possible. There is no overall index to the data and if you are unsure as to which Parish your ancestors may have come from, you may be helped by the baptism, marriage and burial indexes produced on cd by the Hampshire Genealogical Society

In addition over 500 of our own photographs of many Hampshire historical locations
