Welcome to

Tracing the history, ancestry and descendants of the Close surname from Grinton in Swaledale, Yorkshire into Durham, Lancashire and Westmorland. From there families spread to America, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Thousands of census, map and Close family images.

Oh yeah, and we now have hundreds of Peacock’s, Graham’s and Craddock’s just for interest.
