About The Osborn/Rawkins Family
My name is Raymond Emery OSBORN.  My father was Alfred Edward OSBORN and my 
mother Evelyn Elizabeth RAWKINS and this Web Site lists and links all those 
individuals located up to the present day who have been found in my paternal 
and maternal ancestry during researches over the past 20 years, plus known, related
descendants of any and all of those ancestors.

NOTE:  I have also included over 5,000 individuals who are likely to be closely related
but are not confirmed as such, and many others who are only linked through siblings
with spousal connections.  They're included to help our joint researches.

       Also you should be aware that as a "work in progress" the information contained
herein is, like most research, subject to frequent addition, deletion and amendment. 
If you are puzzled by any individual or can add or subtract anyone, please let me know.

My own paternal DNA now confirms me to be most probably of Celtic origin and my known
OSBORN pedigree is firmly rooted in the South Hams area of Devon far back 
into the 16th century.

My paternal grandmother's EMERY, WEMYSS & BORTHWICK ancestors were all involved with
the British Army and the East Indian Railways in Bengal, India throughout the 19th and
early 20th centuries.

The EMERY line originated in the area near Plympton St Mary, Devon, the 
BORTHWICK from Midlothian, Scotland and the WEMYSS from Fifeshire, Scotland.

My mother's, paternal, RAWKINS family were located in Plymouth, Devon for the whole of
the 19th and early 20th centuries and were mainly associated with the Royal Navy and
the Royal Marines, though originally from the tiny village of Sedgehill in the SW
corner of Wiltshire near Salisbury.  Her HOCKING ancestors hailed from Falmouth, Cornwall.

Both the OSBORN & RAWKINS surnames are of Norman, originally Norse, origin. OSBORN
signified "a warrior" or "strong man" and RAWKINS derived from the personal name
"Ralph".  But
most such common surnames were adopted rather than inherited after the 11th century.
