Welcome to
The Lines-Davies family website

Mark and Michèle and their children, Katie and Richard, welcome you to this website.

What's New

...in January 2015.

Richard is studying at the Royal College of Music, having gained his A-levels at Chetham's Music School in Manchester.

The Lines-Davies Family Tree now dates back to 1532. The latest additions to the tree are on the Dodd side of the family, including new Etock ancestors from Church Minshull in Cheshire.

Family Tree

We have an on-line icon Family Tree, and are also building up versions for Mark's sisters' families.

We also have a Genealogy Page.


A number of pages on this website use Silverlight. This is a browser plug-in which is available from Microsoft, if you haven't already got it installed on your computer.

If you are an IT contractor you know how time-consuming replying to recruiter emails can be.

Mark has added Outlook Add-In downloads to make sending an updated CV easier.

Source code is provided too, for which you will need Visual Studio 2010. The Add-in is written in C# and WPF, using MVVM.


This site has been built using HTML and CSS, and displays as intended in Internet Explorer, Firefox and most modern browsers.

There were issues with some of our pages when viewed using Safari or Chrome, but we think these have now been fixed. If you find any problems, please let us know.
