Nevills of Hampshire and Berkshire

As part of my family history research, I have traced my male line of Nevills back to Edward Neavel who was married to Elizabeth Allright at Mapledurwell, Hampshire, on 15 November 1725. As yet I have found no baptism or his likely parents.

My search has covered (or should I say is covering because one never stops) likely parishes in Hampshire and Berkshire. During the research, many references to Nevill (all spellings) 'events' have been identified and a name index of 6,000+ created. While many are in Hampshire a growing number are in Berkshire and therefore may interest your members.

In addition to the proven Nevill family tree centred on Odiham, Hampshire, I have a series of conjectured trees based on parishes in northeast Hampshire and southeast Berkshire. Some have been verified by other family historians, in particular much of the Stratfield Turgis tree by Pat Sloan and Jill Lincoln, both of whom I am indebted to for additional information.

If your members are seeking a Nevill and think I may be able to help then I would be pleased to assist. Similarly if anyone can throw light on the missing Edward I would be pleased to hear from them.
