About HEATH of Staffs
Welcome to this revised family-tree which was previously known as 'Horton Heath's'. The  previous one crashed for no apparent reason in May 2014 which has led to this replacement. It is the culmination of decades of hard work, not just by myself but many other HEATH researchers  around the world. Concentrating in Staffordshire in particular, this site is run with the help of Mrs Mel MYATT &  Mr Harry BURN. To these & many other people, I can only offer my deepest gratitude. Lately, Mrs Donna Tunsion OVADIA (DTO) has filled in a lot of information about our USA cousins over in Hunterdon Co. New Jersey & other areas.

This site is/was never intended to be  used for profit or publication but started from a chance comment by Donald HEATH, (my father's  cousin), who stated of the HEATH's: "You'll never sort them out, too complicated & too many". he was  right of course, but we are making progress...I was pleased to say Don saw the results of our work  before he sadly died in Feb 2015 at 92yrs.

One thing to bear in mind when looking at the Birth dates - these are invariably also the Baptism dates which I know isn't correct, but with this many folk; dates can sometimes be the only  way of separating people with identical names. In a similar vein - the dates for the Birth/Marriages; if only the month is given - this invariably means that 'Quarter', starting  with that month for the given year.
 Some of this work is more of the Hit & Hope variety & can only be corrected after liasing with  a direct relative who has first hand knowledge, my thoughts are that unless it is written down  in the first place; you can't begin to unravel the many family connections which is why I've  sometimes had to set out complete generations of a family in order to understand just a single  marriage & its consequences further down the line where cousins have intermarried as  well...hence that is why you get several different HEATH= nee HEATH's on this tree. Some of the very, very early HEATH lines are also arguable & subject to discussion, hence where uncertainty lies;  this is hopefully made clear.

There are also some 'Stray' HEATH's on here, for which I'd worked a part pedigree out & then realised that although probably buried in & around the area, weren't actually connected to the 'Horton' line. Hopefully this may be rectified in the future. There are also some local gentry to Leek & surrounding area's, whose names kept cropping up on  my travels...

You can also see more pics / info on Harry BURN's excellent site:  http://heathfamilystaffordshire.co.uk/ which is well worth a visit & runs in tandem with this database.

19th Oct 2016 - Following consultation with my fellow researchers mentioned above; From today  all 'Living' relatives will no longer be visible, even to 'Full' members of this site because of  security/privacy concerns. For further info re these & other matters please contact Admin. 
5th Jun 2018 - following a further discussion with my fellow researchers, this tree is now available to view for guests only - all others can contact me for permission as above procedure. Mark HEATH.
