Hello and welcome to the Naylor One-Name Study, which I started in December 2019.

I decided to begin my research in the places where my Naylor families lived, and eventually work towards a worldwide study. My paternal Naylor’s lived in and around Durham, England, and my maternal Naylor’s worked in the Nailer factories in Dudley, Staffordshire, England. My aim is to find out whether there was a link between the two families over a hundred years ago.

This is an ongoing study, so please contact me with any feedback or information you might have. 

I would love to hear from anyone with an interest in the Naylor surname and would appreciate any assistance in making this website bigger and better. Any information that is included in the site will, of course, be credited to the originator.

This study is dedicated to my father, John Joseph Naylor 1930-2017.
