Welcome to Cotton Genealogy web site. The Database holds the descendants of Sir Henry Cotton, from about 1200AD. It is extensive and crosses some 20 generations.

You can access the database from the menu on the left

Thank you for visiting my site, I hope it is of use to you.  Feel free to contact me if you are related to any of my Cotton lines, or can tell me where I have made an error which needs correcting.   You can also contact me with any problems that you have found in the operation of the database


Previous visitors will recognise the look of the site which is based upon my previous combined site, however I have completely reorganised it to use the PhpGedView database. The old RetrospectGDS and hard coded html pages have all been replaced. I hope you find the new features of the site useful. The data is much the same, but I have continued in the improvement of the source documentation. Recent changes to the site are listed on the front page of PhpGedView.

Genealogical research is often built on others, I would like to thank Christine Dix, Ross Cotton, and members of my close family, particularly Helen Scott and Christine Young for their contributions to this combined work.
