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?
Do you have a family tree query that you would like posted here?
All Duroses link up eventually, but sometimes its hard to find out how. If you would like to post a query here to see if someone can help, then mail me using the address on the webmaster page. If there are any replies, all correspondence will go through that e-mail address unless both agree to to be put in direct contact. Also, please don't forget that there is no 'magic bullet' in family tree research, and you should expect that any answers are likley to be the start of something, not the end - you may have to put some work in! Good luck to everyone doing research!
