Site Last Updated 28th Dec 2012

My name is Paul Magnall (born 29th January 1960) and I have been researching the Magnall and Mangnall family history since 1996. If you want to see the pictures of me as a child I now have a page all about me! I have been concentrating on the Ma(n)gnall surname whilst my father, Peter, has been reseaching Scott and Vahey/Fahey (his mother's family) and Hargreaves (his paternal grandmother's family). My Aunt (my mother's sister) is researching my maternal ancestors which start with Bigwood. Hopefully we will get some of this information on the net soon! If you want to find out more about my father try the Appsnet page

Although I live in West Yorkshire, UK, the majority of Ma(n)gnall records seem centred around Bury and Burnley in Lancashire with off shoots into Southern California, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. I am interested in any information or stories that involve Ma(n)gnalls, I may eventually develop my research into a One Name Study, so if you have any information or stories do please contact me at Paul Magnall

In 1765 the Armorial Bearings shown on all my pages (except this one!) were granted to a Thomas Magnall. I don't know if I am a direct decendant or not but I have used the coat of arms as a logo on my pages - if you click on it you will be returned to this page. For more information on the Arms click here.

If you have any problems viewing these pages then please let me know.

The website is in the process of being moved from my previous ISP - please accept my apologies for any broken links.
