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.

Highgate Hill

I'm pleased to announce a new feature on the blog.  If you look in the right hand column you will see: RESIDENTS OF UPPER HOLLOWAY.  Click on those words and it will take you to a list of streets and flats in Upper Holloway together with the names of known relatives who lived in them. For the sake of completeness I have added a few important streets from adjacent postal areas. The list is, of course, nowhere near complete and will be added to when I get the time or when new information becomes available.  This feature will probably be temporary on THE BAYLISS LINE as I intend it to be the basis of a new family project which will have its own blog, but more of that in the future.
