Hello. My name is Eric Rowland. I live in Luton, Bedfordshire, and have spent several years researching the origins of the Artus family name and how it became established in the Manchester area. During this time, I became a member of the Society of Genealogists and made many, many visits to the Gloucestershire Records Office, the Public Records Office at Kew, and numerous other places. My research also brought me into contact with many members of the extended Artus family, worldwide, and I must express my gratitude to those people who assisted and encouraged me, particularly Pam Daw, who supplied the photograph of John Artus with his son Alfred, documentation on the imprisonment of John and William Artus Jr., and the copies of William Artus's will and inventory.

Also, my indebtedness to my nephew, Mark Murray, of Downpatrick, without whose curiosity and prompting this project would never have been undertaken.
It has been great fun, and the result is this site, a collection of documents and pictures which hopefully explains and - at the same time - entertains.

The aim of this project is to take some of the hard work out of researching and locating ancestors and relatives with the Artus surname. There is still a long way to go, but hopefully the objective will eventually be achieved.

If you think you are connected to this branch of the Artus family, or if you have any information, photographs, etc. regarding the Artus name, I would be delighted to hear from you.

If you have any details concerning births, marriages or deaths not shown on the site, I would be pleased to include them in the current lists.
