My interest in Family Trees has a long history, however I cannot take credit for the lengthy research that has taken place to bring much of the information on this tree together. Marjorie Drakeford (née Joly) has spent many years researching the Joly Family Tree and has been able to trace the Jolys back as far as 1550. She has made substantive notes that have been included here. Another source has been that of an old torn document from probably the 1920s that has provided additional information about the Hadkinsons and showed where the two families joined. In 1975 while on a visit to the Amat family in Herblay, France, Gordon Charles Joly copied a document kept by the family that detailed the Hadkinson Family Tree.
The site includes photos dating late 19th Century to mid 20th Century of people who I think are part of the Hadkinson family. This family lived in Smyna, Greece, and Egypt. I believe they are more likely to be related to Charles Richard Hadkinson who died in 1942 in Alexandria. Please get in touch if you can help. They can all be found on the media page of an unlinked individual called Unknown Photos Hadkinson or Joly family
I have also carried out some research on the families of Joyce Ivy Baker, which has now been added to the site. Louise Joly, August 1st 2006 (updated January 1 2014)
