Hi Taylors! :) I'm in Adelaide, South Australia. I'm obviously not a Taylor, I'm a Pain (but i try not to be :) My family emigrated from in and around Staffordshire, England to Adelaide, Australia in the early 1900s. The second of my father's middle names is Taylor, same for my brother and his first born son. Same was for my grandfather and his father etc etc etc. I'm not sure how far back in history it happened, but somewhere at some stage in UK somewhere there was a marriage of a Pain and a Taylor, and instead of dropping the Taylor name, the bride decided to keep it with the name Pain. So all of the men in my family are Taylor Pains. I really like it. Only thing is, i cant find anything related to a Taylor / Pain marriage and/or the Taylor Pain names being together (still a beginner, but enjoying reading all the history and stories along the way) :)
Hello Taylors, I was born in Leicester uk, now living in Switzerland. I have traced my family back several generations, and have several Taylor relations who died in France during WW1. Nice to share the name with you
Hello Taylor, I was born in Chelmsford and want to know about my family history because the only things i know is that i had 3 granddads that i know of in ww1 and ww2, so where can i trace my name back?
I am a Taylor living in western NC. Most of my family is from Virginia, having come here from Carlisle and Pennington Castle in England, with the first James Taylor. We are direct descendants of Zachary Taylor, his brother Samuel being my great-great-great grandfather. Would be interested in hearing from any Taylors!
I am from Louisiana, I have Family from Caldwell parish and La sale parish and from a few others I can't remember, a lot of us have been in Texas since the mid 60's. Older sister had a book on the history of our family, she had it taken all the way to Scotland, sadly the book burned in a house fire, and I lost my sister a year later, we never had a chance to sit down and go over it all again and get the person back that did the tracking down, that info died with her.
