This interesting book – Notes on a Line of the Galloway Family – is “parked” here temporarily for a friend until he is

able to move it across to his own website.

The book, which runs to about 180 pages, is the result of many years’ research into the ancestors of Geoffrey Lewis

Galloway (1908-1992).  In addition to four generations of the Galloway family itself, there is a great deal of information

on connected families, including Jenkins, Hutchinson, Wyatt, Daunt, Coffin, Mawby, Clossy and others.

Please respect this work (i.e. do not copy large chunks of it without fair acknowledgement), but otherwise feel free to
