Notes on genealogical research

The John Hampden Society has received many enquiries over the years from people tracing their family histories or simply researching genealogical connections. Whilst we endeavour to answer all the enquiries that the Society receives we cannot claim to provide a comprehensive professional service.

We hope that the newly created Family Tree section of this website will be of some assistance. We will be adding more material to it as time allows. If you have any comments or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact us via the secretary .  To see more of the “family tree” than is displayed on the opening screen you must click on the “tree icon” within the boxes for individuals. However not all “tree icons” have further information behind them.

Some researchers may wish to consult our transcription of the Hampden entries in The Great Hampden Parish Register .

The following website links may be of further assistance Bucks Family History Society and Bucks Genealogical Group

There are papers relating to the Hampden family at the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies in Aylesbury.

Bucks Civil War petitions/pensions can be found at including information from other counties/nations.
