Overview

--- A historical and genealogical book that covers more than a millennium of time with many spellings of the Bell family along with a pattern of their European, English, Scottish and Irish migration movements to North America and the West Indies colonies. --- Compiled from the author's repository of computer notes and facts of over one hundred thousand pages covering over fourteen thousand Bells of many spellings. -- They are descendants of Flemish/Normans who became Nobles, Clan Chiefs, Members of Parliament, Members of Congress, Governors, Bishops, Clergymen, Great Merchants, Worshipful Merchants, and Indentured Servants. -- Bell's were active as powerful Speaker of The House of Commons, Lord Chief Baron of the Exchequer to the Queen, Virginia Company of London Charter Signers, Fierce Border Reivers, Explorers, Inventors, Colony Settlers, Plantation Owners, Headrights, Soldiers, Military Officers, American Patriots, Transported Undesirables, Slave Owners, and a Presidential Candidate. -- They were ancestors of the present day English Crown. --- This is an attractive and scholarly book whose authors have compiled a timeline of several Bell bloodlines, their many Coat of Arms and other family events from ca. 820 AD to ca. 1800. -- Today many family researchers can often trace their ancestors to ca. 1800, this book may help them to find earlier kinship. --- The unique style of compiling, sequencing, writing and cramming thousands of orderly facts is a first for established family archivists and researchers, yet is easy for beginners to follow. -- Hundreds of other books that list related Bell families after 1800 are referenced. -- The index of about 7000 other than Bell surnames, often related, may be of interest to non Bell researchers. --- CLICK BACK COVER FOR SELECTED READER COMMENTS.

    Being an amateur to the field of genealogy, I purchased this boo

    Being an amateur to the field of genealogy, I purchased this book with a mote of trepidation. James and Frances Bell's prior book, Sir Robert Bell and His Early Virginia Colony Descendants, while highly informative and very detailed, was not a tome for the faint of heart. The sheer volume of information was almost overwhelming. Their latest creation, Bell Roots, is a much more digestible effort.
    Anyone interested in Bell Genealogy will find this book fascinating. This effort takes the reader back to England and Scotland (among other places), where the Bell clan originated. Detailed maps of the region make it easy for the reader to reference the geography as information is gleaned from the pages, a much appreciated feature.
    The authors also include chapters on Coats of Arms and Crests of the Bell family. Being a person prone to visual stimulus, I found this section of particular delight. Understanding the history of these symbols helped me piece together a mental image of my forebearers.
    The section I most appreciated was called Merry Passages and Jests, a chapter that compiles actual correspondence of Bell forefathers. Both informative and witty, this section puts a human face onto the many, many, many people who made the Bell gene pool what it is today. It helped me to humanize the charts and numbers that can sometimes overwhelm the field of genealogy.
    James and Frances Bell have once again completed meticulous research to complete another volume to add to your Bell history library. The t's have been crossed and the i's have been dotted on this book. I can wholeheartedly recommend this Bell resource to anyone interested in the Bell history
