Roger Kingdon’s genealogical research


Frederick Buckingham Kingdon’s The Kingdon Family (Stanley Press London 1932) is the essential starting-point for genealogical research into the Kingdon family. The author died in 1944 which means that his copyright on The Kingdon Family has now expired. Accordingly, and in the interests of assisting further private research into the Kingdon family, I am making available my scanned copy of this important document.

Using Microsoft Access 2000 I have created a database which uses a couple of very neat recursive algorithms to output family tree data in a choice of formats.

In 2017 I published The Origin of the Kingdons in which I trace the family history right back to 1066.

My mother’s grandfather was one of the ‘Pawlyn Brothers’ who up to the 1950s were prominent West Country fish merchants, such that their fish barrels and boxes were a common sight on the quays of Cornish fishing villages and the Barbican in Plymouth.
