Welcome

 

THIS WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY NOT BEING UPDATED - SEE FURTHER DETAILS BELOW (12 JUNE 2018)

 

Gordon MARTIN created this family history site which is primarily dedicated to my direct paternal MARTIN ancestor who originally settled in Frome, Somerset, England in 1815 and his descendants. 

 

Charles William MARTIN born Magdeburg, Prussia served on the British Navy's ship Achille at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805. Said to be '... a man of colour boorn in upper germany ...'  The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) programme Black and British: A Forgotten History (Part 2) commemorated the black sailors who fought at Nelson's side.  

 

Our paternal ancestry is said to be Native American according to Y-DNA testing whereas photographic (unable to share here due to Broadmoor copyright) and written evidence c1870 suggests we are '... i expect of african descent...' Member of Family Tree DNA's Y-DNA, MARTIN, Q-M242 Y-DNA and American Indian Projects. Additionally a participant of genealogy and DNA groups on Facebook.

 

Acknowledgement: Berkshire Record Office, Reading who are custodians of the Broadmoor Asylum records and the source of quotations made to Charles William MARTIN (above) and for providing a copy of the photograph of his son Charles Alfred MARTIN (1824-1913) aka Carlos MARTINI.
