The format of the Family Trees
is being updated to full colour as individual pages are refreshed
These pages attempt to show
the descendants of the Beales family in St Osyth.
The Beales name was extensive in the community from the mid 1800`s
until the 1970`s.
For example , in the 1881 census there were 28 names registered
By the 1901 census, this increased to 41 some 20 years later.
My own family lived in Chestnut
Cottage in Spring Rd. I cannot be sure when my parents moved in,
but it must have been before 1934, we finally vacated the premises
I have attempted on this web
site to document the Beales and Bell ( my mothers side) back as
far as records currently take us.
The Bell family together with the Clampins lived in the Gas
House which was located opposite the Kings Arms. This supplied
Gas to the Priory.

The Beales were also related to the Ramplings,
and the Last families.
Consequently, I have also attempted to document the links between
My father Ernest Alfred Beales married Ivy Emily Bell.
The Beales were long standing residents of St Osyth, whilst the Bell family
moved into the village from Sproughton, near Ipswich.
The Beales was also related to the Ramplings, Bareham, Clampin and the Last
Consequently, I have also documented links between these families.
I have purposefully not used family tree software, as this method allows me
to add various notes when new information is submitted. The downside being it
may be difficult to follow.
Later updates have no B - ie 1818 means born on that date
M or m = marriage date
D or d =death date
SO = St Osyth
Notes with additional information
Published by Alan Beales, formerly
of St Osyth
This work has been the culmination of many years research.
Small portions of this tree ahave already been published on "Ancestry
and Genes Re-united".
Unfortunately they contain a multitude of errors which seem to stem from conjecture
on the part of the authors,
here we hope to correct some of those errors.
If you have any further information that can be added to these descendants,
then use this contact form.
I look forward to hearing from you
