WELCOME TO THE BAYLISS LINE. This blog has been created for my family. By "my family" I mean all those who are related to the Bayliss family either by blood, marriage or even relationship. There are, of course, other Bayliss families not related to us but this blog has at its heart a very specific family who had their origins in Gloucestershire. I am connected to that family because my mother was a Bayliss and it was her curiosity that started my research back in the early 1990's. So, what are you likely to see on this blog? Well, as it is a blog, I want it to be as entertaining as possible rather that a dry listing of facts (that is for Ancestry.com). I will, hopefully, be posting entries on our ancestors and relatives, on the places where they lived, and the historical times they lived through. I have an extensive collection of photographs of people and places which I will, of course, be sharing.

I'd like to ask anybody who reads this blog to give me some feedback. I'd really like this to be a two way thing. It sometimes unearths new information and, to be honest, it gives me encouragement. There will be two ways of providing feedback - either through the comment button (you will need a Google account for this) or via the e-mail address which appears on this page - alternatively, ring me. Now scroll down to read the latest entries.....and, of course, via Facebook.

Dogs have always been favourite pets in our family and I'm sure many of us have fond memories of our canine friends. Here's a lovely picture of the latest family pooch. His name is Teddy and he is a Little stray who was taken in by cousin Treena's daughter Tabitha (thanks for the great picture!). Tabitha tried to find him a new home without success - not realising that there was no way Teddy would be going anywhere but where he was!  Teddy is now a member of the family and can be seen sleeping off 14 pints and a curry with Tabitha's daughter Verity.  If you have a favourite pet picture let me have a copy for the blog.
