This website includes information about my forthcoming book Tracing Your Pre-Victorian Ancestors, together with an account of my personal research into the ancestry of William Davenport, an ancestor of Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge.

After many years of personal family history research and ten years practising as a professional genealogist, I have now retired from carrying out genealogical research for clients in person. However, in response to the suggestion from several people who read drafts of Tracing Your Pre-Victorian Ancestors that I should continue to make my professional knowledge and expertise available to a wider audience, I now offer a consultancy and mentoring service for people carrying out their own research who would like one-to-one advice and assistance. To reflect this change of focus, John Wintrip Genealogy Services has become John Wintrip: Genealogy Specialist.
