Collection of miscellaneous documents and ephemera
relating to our family but excluding Rawes.


I have created this section on the website as a repository for a mass of miscellaneous material on various branches of the family that has been accumulated over many years of casual research. I tended to concentrate on a one-name study of the name 'Rawes', found elsewhere on this site while my late father Bernard Rawes dealt mostly on extending our knowledge of other branches of the family. The collection includes material such as pedigrees, wills, photographs, letters, histories, along with hundreds of notes on scraps of paper.

Additions to this section will be sporadic and occasional, as the varied material is processed in a form whereby it can be accepted by the website, only then can it be uploaded and thereby made available to a wider audience.

Roope & Martin: Roopes are divided between the earlier Roopes while the later Roopes (name assumed by deed pole) who are descended from Roope Harris later to be known as Roope Harris Roope. He was a descendant of the earlier Roopes and designated by Margaret Deeble to be her heir as long as he assumed the name of Roope. There are two families of Martin: ancestors of Roope Harris Roope and Martins related to the earlier Roopes.
