Ernie Easter

My father was Ernie (Ernest) Easter, and traced the genealogy of our family, and related families, for about forty years. When he started, computers and the internet were unknown, and he and my mother spent many weekends and holidays in graveyards and record offices around the country.

I have been researching for about 15 years, starting on my husband's family tree, and expanding the family history of both trees.

The earliest record we have found of our branch of the Easter family is in Stow-cum-Quy, Cambridgeshire in 1675. They moved to Aldeburgh, Suffolk, in about 1708. The family moved to east London in the 1850s.

An interesting ancestor - Sir William Blackstone

Sir William Blackstone, (July 10, 1723 - February 14, 1780) was an English jurist and professor who produced the historical and analytic treatise on the common law called Commentaries on the Laws of England, first published in four volumes over 1765-1769.

Samuel Carter, Mormon Pioneer

Samuel and his family emigrated from Cheshire, England to Utah in the 1860's under the Perpetual Emigration scheme. They settled in Springville, Utah County, Utah. Samuel's wife was Eleanor Huntingdon, and the Huntingdon name appears frequently in the names of their descendants.

Families descended from them include Parry, Binks, Averett, Wilson, Sutton, Stubs, Francome, Bateson, and Roylance.

William Samuel St John, RN

William Samuel St John was my husband's great-grandfather. He was born in Stoke Damerel (sometimes spelled Deveral), Devonshire on 1 Feb 1854. In 1870 he joined the Royal Navy. This information is from his service records.


I'm storing many of my trees on WikiTree. Unlike many websites, where a person may appear many times in several trees, WikiTree aims to have one entry or profile for each person - more like a yearbook or directory. Each profile is managed by one or two people, and can be updated by those people they deem "Trusted". The interactive trees displayed on this site are updated automatically from my WikiTree, so please click the widget below, or any of the people shown on a tree, to visit my WikiTree.
