This is a very greatly simplified version, really only an introduction, of the Family Tree which will not download on this website, It shows the first Yonges we know of and who are common to all Family members then the offshoots leading to the main branches existing today, as defined by geography. Many side branches are excluded and no details are given for anyone born after 1816.

In time further trees going forward in time, will appear below for these various branches referred to below but only showing lines which continue to this day. Lines which have died out will not be shown.

Anyone interested in tracing their past ancestors in detail, should contact me for further information or
