Family History

These pages exist to tell the story of some members of the Vincent Family

Some were written by the people themselves and some have been pieced together from other documentation.

This branch of the Vincents originates from Dorset – word of mouth history within the family was that we descended from French Huguenots. I’ve not researched back that far but we have a past history of protestantism and non-conformism that would support that theory.

Of course there are many other surnames within my family but, for now, I’m keeping to Vincent.
