Thank you for visiting the Ryals-Ancestry website.
Our earliest ancestor to date is John Ryals born in 1753. Also having roots in County Clare in Ireland where the Foley family originate from and various counties up and down the UK including Shropshire where the Corbett family started out and subsequently settled in Derbyshire and Yorkshire. Other members come from around the South Shields Durham area and also Oldham in Lancashire.
My interest in family history prompted me to build this website to make contact with relatives further afield than the United Kingdom. We currently have one family member who settled in the USA.
This website is intended to be a resource for the beginning genealogists of our lineage. At some point we may ask ourselves where do I come from and the answer to that question can be diificult as we often drift apart from our families or fail to keep in touch and there's always a possibility that someone knows what happened to the family members whom we seek. The main aim for me is to provide a starting point for visitors to build on in hope they may find what they need. The database currently holds 551 names and steadily grows as more ancestors are traced.
For surname origins please look at the left side of the homepage where you will find links to surnames that are on the website again these will added to as and when available to the site.
