Ten Major Gypsy Families of Wales & The English West & North - as its title implies - brings together the family trees of 10 families, grouped by the region of Britain in which they originated, lived and travelled and – no doubt in some cases – associated with each other and intermarried.

The result is a book that is very different in format to the previous 17 single-surname volumes in the RTFHS’s popular Family Tree series but one that continues to offer family historians the pioneering and in-depth research that Eric Trudgill is well-known for.

The 10 families featured in this book are: Daniel EVANS & Lydia JONES; Abel, Cinamenty & Patience RYALLS; Francis & Fanny HEAPS;
Robert HOLLAND & Ann BRADBURY; George FLORENCE & Ann BAILEY; John SCARROTT & Ann HALL; Thomas SHERRIFF & Mary BUTLER; Edmund CHARLOTTE & Elizabeth JUSTICE; John & Faney WARTON; and Richard, Devit & Margaret HERON.

As far as we are aware, some of these families have never been studied in detail, documented or appeared in print before.

This book is the first in a number of Family Tree books currently in preparation by Eric in this fresh compendium-style, geographically based, format, to be published by the RTFHS in due course.

This is an in-depth genealogical study of one of the most celebrated and prominent families in Britain’s Romany community, the Boswells. It’s essential background reading for anyone with Boswell ancestors but also for those whose relatives intermarried with or travelled with this widespread family, guiding the reader through from the Boswells’ likely origins during the English Civil War to the dawn of the Regency period. This pioneering history is the first volume of a two-volume set but both Part 1 and Part 2 can be read and enjoyed independently. A4 paperback, 138 pages, numerous illustrations in black and white.

This is an extensive database of references for British Romany Boswells such as baptisms, marriages and burials gleaned mainly from parish registers, newspapers, Poor Law Papers and other sources in the period 1650 to 1810. It also features chapters on three other Romany families who were most closely linked with the Boswells in times past: the Blewitts, Scamps and Lovells. This essential reference work is the second volume of a two-volume set but both Part 1 and Part 2 can be read and enjoyed independently. A4 paperback, 178 pages, with illustrations and maps in black and white.

From the 1720s to the early 20th Century from the Southern Counties of England.

The Does are one of the lesser-known but important Romany families of the Southern Counties of England.
Individuals of the name occasionally came to the attention of the Gypsiologists and so appeared from time to time
in the pages of the Journal of the Gypsy Lore Society in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
However, until now, little of their family history and social history has ever been formally and comprehensively researched and documented.
RTFHS member Stephen Doe now puts that to rights with what we believe to be the first study of its kind.

From about 1710 to about 1910, from primarily Hampshire and Berkshire. Compiled by Anne-Marie Ford. A4, 20 pages.

This updated and expanded edition of The Family Trees of Hercules and Peter Stanley reflects finds from the many new family history sources that have become available since its first publication by the RTFHS in 2013. The author Anne-Marie Ford, a widely recognised expert on the Romany Gypsy Stanley family, has been able to add new branches and individuals to the original trees through her continued dedicated research and discoveries both in archives and in online databases, making it a must for anyone tracing the Stanleys and associated families.

Before the author began her pioneering study of the Stanleys, almost all that had been written about the family concentrated on their lives in the USA, following a 19th century exodus from Britain. In this book the author has corrected the imbalance by – quite literally – taking the Stanleys back to their origins in Southern England.

This volume focuses on the Stanleys in their home territories of Berkshire and Hampshire. Also published by the RTFHS and available from GENfair is a companion volume - The Family Trees of Paul & Peter, Richard & Owen Stanley. This follows the family as they move further west into the counties of Dorset, Devon and Somerset.
