The Rowntree Family
The task of documenting the lives of the Rowntree Family as a whole would be immense. This Website centres on one branch of the Rowntrees of Risborough that has Frederick Rowntree as the Patriarch. There are pages relevant to Fred's siblings and other members of the Family and references and links to others more distantly related and those drawn in by marriage.
The Introduction and many of the early family trees are taken from the latest edition of the book Rowntrees of Risborough by Charles Brightwen Rowntree and subsequently his niece E.Margaret Sessions.
By virtue of the nature of Quakerism in the eighteen and ninety centuries is is observable that quaker families group and intermarried. It will be noticed that the articles relating to Fred Rowntree and his offspring tend to involved other large and significant Quaker families, Grays and Cruikshanks of Scotland and the Thorps of Leeds. This issue is drawn out in the article The Bootham Connection
