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 access to the website or help with your Heath family tree you will need to supply as much information as you can so that we can verify your connection to the Heath family. Most requests contain very little information, we need as many names, dates and locations as you can provide in order to help you. Almost all the requests for help contain little or no information, a typical example would be,

"Hi I am doing my family tree and I can't find any info on David J Bloore who married my grandmother in leek. In 1947. I can't find any more information on him on ancestry. Com. I would be very grateful for any information).

If you don't supply the required information I'm sorry but it will unfortunately keep us from helping you.

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.

Spring by George Heath

Beautiful Spring! Beautiful Spring!
Coming again on the wandering wing,
Sunshine and beauty and pleasure to bring,
Gladly we welcome thee, beautiful Spring!

Virgin of purity, rapture is thine,
Bright is thy brow, as the lore of the mine,
Fair is thy cheek, as the flush of the rose,
Sweet is thy smile, as an infant's repose.

Robed with a mantle of gorgeous array,
Girded with tendrils of amaranths gay,
Jewelled with flowerets of every hue,
Frescoed with sunbeams and spangled with dew;

Hollow-cheeked sorrow and sadness and gloom
Vanish away to their wintry tomb;
Grief bows her fennel-crowned head to thy sway,
Time like a phantom glides swiftly away.
