CONSTABLE

Historically, Surrey has one of the highest concentrations in the UK of people named Constable, and this website is concerned with a small subset of those, together with other relatives by marriage. The tree (below, left) shows the single paternal line for the four siblings at its foot. Until an expanded tree is produced here, showing greater detail for this line and the maternal line of each of the four, feel free to contact me* if you have an interest in, or connection with, any of the names listed (below, right) in order of decreasing presence in the eventual tree.
