Hurley and Skidmore Family History


These pages are the product of my research into many branches of my Hurley/Box ancestors and my Skidmore/Rogers ancestors. The information collected will be of most relevance to descendants of Leo (Horace Leopold) and Marie Hurley, and Valdis and John Skidmore, however those more distantly connected or just interested in family histories, may also find it enjoyable and informative.

Over many years I have been collecting information from a variety of sources resulting in these stories covering many branches of my family history. I have discovered roots in Australia back to 1820 and links to all parts of Britain: from rural Devon and Hampshire villages, to gentry in Galloway and Staffordshire colliers, as well as many Londoners and a few Irish and Welsh. As all family historians know, there is always more to discover.
