The World is our Tortoise


MY LIFE and my Associated Families




Eric Crookes


My web-site describes the histories and family trees of my immediate and extended families.  Included are the families of Crookes, Leary, Gillyatt, Bennett and Darling.

It has been a fascinating genealogical study that has taken the best part of thirty-five years and I used genealogical web-sites such as as well as the records Office at the Sheffield Local Studies library
