All things Durose
Durose is a surname that may easily be traced to Bramshall in North Staffordshire, England, in the 16th Century. This site is inspired by curiosity as to the deeper origins of the name, and by a geneological group that meets once a year in Bramshall Church Hall.
Welcome to the Durose Surname Site! Our aim is to provide an on-line resource for those interested in the Durose name, family and extended family.
Here you will find information about the possible origins of the name, and a collection of family trees. Since the Duroses appeared to emerge from Staffordshire there's also a section on Durose Places both there and beyond. As with other family names, there have been waves of emigration, and our Places extend overseas. You may read about our family histories and notables, such as they are. For those intent on further geneological research, there are Resources and Photos sections, not least so you need not duplicate what has been done already. Where Duroses appear on the web, you may find them in our Links page. Last but not least, why not join us for the annual Durose Gathering in Bramshall?
Durose Gathering 2013
This year's Gathering was held in July at Bramshall and was a great success. Details for next year's will be posted here in the late spring.
