and Dales' Family information








This site began as a dedication to the various Spensley families from the Dales. However it's impossible to follow one family without having quite a bit of knowledge of others in the area because of the many links.
The Yorkshire Dales will always be my home. Many other families can also trace their roots back here. I would like to share some of the information I have learned about them and always welcome more. I hope to provide other sources of information for people interested in this area of the Dales, so please check back regularly.
