This book traces the history of the Fitzhugh Family of Bedfordshire, England from the first Hugh and his wife Joyce, who were living in 1223 and from whom the family name derives, down to William Fitzhugh the Immigrant (1651-1701) who founded the Fitzhugh Family of Virginia. For the first four centuries it draws upon the work of the late Terrick V. H. FitzHugh, a noted genealogist. The latter pages of the book continue from William's son John in an unbroken line to the present author. There are 509 pages, 152,000 words, 778 footnotes and endnotes, a synoptic summary, 21 pages of family trees, 14 maps, 16 illustrations, and 47 photographs. A total of eleven Appendices discuss subjects such as the correct Coat of Arms of the Family, the Fitzhugh China Pattern, family sites in Bedfordshire, and the relationship of our Family to the Barons FitzHugh, the Magna Carta, and other Fitzhugh families. A full index is provided.
