Christmas Genealogy


Direct Ancestors of Walter Henry Crabb

The Crabb family married into the Christmas family in 1901 when Alfred Crabb married Eleanor Eliza Christmas.  The Christmas family has been researched separately and the result of that research, dating back to William Christmas born circa 1757, is presented here.

The Christmas family history has been compiled by Henry Christmas of Shrewsbury. Information also provided by Brian Christmas of Maidstone and his one name study researched from Parish Records, Mormon IGI, St. Catherine's House birth, marriage, deaths, wills and census returns etc.

In addition, valuable information comes from the personal family trees kindly provided by Frank William Christmas of NSW., Australia, Terry Christmas of NSW, Australia and Maurice Walter Crabb of West Sussex.
