SELLONs - Accross the Pond.
Posted by: Andrew Sellon Date: May 06, 1998 at 05:08:02
  of 153

Having posted the odd reply on the forum recently, it is about time that I declared myself and my interests.

For the past three years or so I have been working on my line of SELLONs, getting back to the mid C16th in north Hampshire. I shamelessly make use of the hard work of others. You should be warned that I have not verified every fact, (could not be done in the three years!), but I have a belief in the work I do, and do not think it to be too inaccurate.

There are now two families SELLON in the UK, my brother's and my own. In the N.E. of England there is one GORE-SELLON family, (who do not know why the added name) - connected with Bertie SELLON who founded a Canadian line in C19th.

In addition I have note of a number of 'odd SELLONs' dating from C16th in Kent and along the Seven Valley in Gloucestershire down to Somerset. Amongst the last lot there are SELLENs noted in the same villages.

The name, I am certain, comes from France (where there are a number of families), but I have not any proof.

I give here a listing from my main line of SELLONs at a time when 3 or 4 migrated across the pond; I hope this will lead to links with a number of your projects. I do have (later) additional links across to both Canada and the USA.

There were a number of SELLONs in N.S., who I believe may have come in through New England, but I have little information on them.

I now realise how long a posting this is, I hope not too long.

I am new to the www, e-mail and forums, so please be patient with me. Any apparent discourtesy on my part is unintentional.

Regards to all. Andrew Sellon.
