Welcome to the web pages of

"The Heath Family of Staffordshire".

Anyone who now visits the new website will find that some pages have restricted access. This means that you will have to send a request via the "Contact Page" to request a password.

When requesting a password to access the site, you will have to supply information so that we can verify your connection to the Heath family.

Access will only be granted to someone with a bona fide connection to the Heath family.


This site is intended to become a resource for any would be "HEATH" researcher out there who wishes to follow their pedigree by taking advantage of knowledge already fully researched and which has already been looked at by at least a family member with a vested interest in ensuring that it is as accurate as it can be It concentrates mainly on the HEATH's of Horton, near Leek in Staffordshire but there are now relatives throughout the UK and even out in Canada, New Zealand and Australia. There are also some interesting links to Pennsylvania in America.

There are three main contributors of information to this site: Melanie MYATT, Harry BURN and Mark HEATH, all are related through direct blood line or marriage to the Heaths of Horton Parish in Staffordshire. There are many other contributors though and the aim is to counteract some of poor research that has built up over the years on the internet with information that has been verified and known to be correct.

There will eventually be links added to other useful sites. We hope to include the odd pedigree that has been worked upon but not tied in as yet to the Horton clan. Rather than leave these in a cupboard gathering dust, they will be placed on here to encourage information exchange. Please bear with us as the website is developed and extra features etc are added. There is a forum included where you can discuss the family and if anyone has any requests please don't be shy pop it onto the forum.

By George Heath 1844 - 1869



The jokes and the joys of the season,
Its compliments, laughter, and glee,
Its meetings, its kissings and greetings,
With the love of a friend to thee.

May loved ones flock round thee in plenty,
May "Your little Accounts" be scant:
Be thine all the cheer of the season,
With none of its cold and its want.

Be thy sources of pleasure many,
Thy causes for sorrow but few,
May the Old Year drop merrily over
I' the dawn of a happier new.
