Old Woking High Street
Woking Family Tree Project
The Family History of Woking is an "in progress" work which started in 2012 and aimed to conduct a "One-Place Study" of St Johns, Woking but soon expanded to include the whole of Woking Parish. We are creating new transcriptions of the original documents available showing the Families who lived in the area constituting the Ancient Parish of Woking and tracing the family relationships. In 2016 it became apparent that, although Horsell was not connected to Woking in the study period and in fact was in a different Hundred and Registration District, the proximity of the village to the area around Woking Railway station was going to cause gaps in the family histories, so the Transcription area was increased, whilst family members who only appear in the surrounding Parishes are also displayed here.
The primary focus of the project will be on the period between 1813 and the 1911 Census although families have been extended to the return of the British Expeditionary Forces in 1921/22 in the cases where members were lost in the Great War.
As the Web site is still a "Work in Progress" after 7 years any data extracted should be checked against original Sources, and some changes to the published information is inevitable as the Registers for the period between 1813 and 1837 did not always provide sufficient evidence.
The Transcribed Data is entered into my main Research Database and wherever possible Family Trees created, the Folks who lived in the Woking/Horsell area are then extracted and presented here.
