About Me

I am Juliet Evans. I am a Streatfield, on my dad’s side and a Howard, on my mum’s side). This is my family – taken a few years ago now!  I live in Bournemouth and you can contact me at  juliet22@btopenworld.com.


I began doing family history research in about 1981; before the internet and when I wrote lots of letters asking lots of questions and sending stamped addressed envelopes!, I decided very early on that I would research families on both sides back to my 4 sets of great grand-parents. After I had my daughter in 1991, I began the same for my husband’s side, beginning with Evans and Bibby. I then added a few extra family lines that I thought were interesting and then began some for friends and family! I now have around 28 family trees all together.

The internet both aided and sped up my research; I definitely owe a lot to both ancestry and familysearch among others. I have also had lots of help along the way from other researchers and I hope I do not forget to thank these people in the relevant pages.

In the last three years, things have slowed up a bit mainly due to me spending time on a photography course, but also due to the fact that I had reached a sticky end with so many family lines.  I am hoping that by making this new website, I can kick start things off again.

I hope you find these pages helpful and of interest.

  • I am very loved for this website. Its an informative subject. It aid me quite much to resolve some problems. Its prospect are so great and doing work type so speedy. I think it might be help all of you. Thanks.

  • Greetings Juliet,

    Having referred to you ‘old’ web site in my researches you may be interested to look at and refer to the site I set up for the Streatfield lineages in consultation with Malcolm Streatfield, Trevor Gibbons and Ron Ellis. However the site and errors are mine of course! As we are in the process of moving it han’t had much attention for the last few months.

    I will be happy to add your new site to the Streatfield one when you have your Streatfield line on this.

    with regards and best wishes

    • Hi Michael,

  • Tim Peers:

    Hi Juliet,
    I am researching purely along the Peers family line, and its origins, which are very close to yours. My three points of reference are all called HENRY PEERS.
    i.e. (1)Henry PEERS, born 18/3/1849 at Brimstage, Wirral
    (2) Henry PEERS , born 28/10/1823 at Brimstage
    (3) Henry PEERS, born 3/10/1790 at Storeton, Wirral.
    I have then come to a huge sticking point. No (3) Henry PEERS is the son of George PEERS and Mary???
    Unfortunately a search of the parish register reveals three marriages very close together, all three are marriages between George PEERS and Mary. I cannot decipher which one is the correct marriage. If your research has reached this point and/or you are able to shed any light, then I would be very grateful for any assistance that you could render. Many thanks, Tim Peers.
    (I now live in Norfolk, but the rest of our line of the PEERS family are scattered around the country)

    Hi, I am a descendant of the Curtis family of South Perrott, Dorset. Recently I had my DNA tested and found I had Curtis relatives in USA? However their tree goes back to a William Curtis of Nazeing Essex. Does anyone know if any of his children’s family moved to South Perrott? I would love to find why I have Curtis in the USA who have DNA matches with me. I did message one lady but she wasn’t able to help. Hoping you can.
    I live in Gympie, Qld, Australia
