    Welcome - this is a site devoted to the Uglow name in the UK. It aims to trace the development of the Uglow family since the 16th century. There are over 2500 individuals identified on the database - that is only those with the surname Uglow. Eventually the objective is to enable the 150+ Uglows who live in the UK to track their ancestors back to their roots in north east Cornwall. Much of the credit for the information here must go to John 1921 of Thorverton, Devon, Bill of Lincoln, Tony Rivett of Birmingham and the other researchers mentioned below and less to me, Steve 1947.

July 2019 - apologies but it's been a while since any update. Struggles with the server but also life's events! If there is any information that you'd like to share on this site, please let me know. My major source (Ancestry) doesn't have births, marriages or deaths after 2005 so I'm reliant on you all to keep this up to date!

  • Uglows of Chingford, an independent soft furnishing store, closed after 100 years of trading, in July 2010. 10 years after the shop doors closed in Station Road, Peter Uglow told the story of the family business to the local history society and is available on Youtube.

  • Congratulations to Harry Uglow 1996 - in August 2012, Harry from Botley became the youngest person to row single-handed across the Channel from Folkestone to Sangatte in aid of the Make A Wish Foundation who supported his brother, Ollie. For photos, go to his Facebook page but plenty of press coverage.

    As the research has proceeded, there is more data about living people.  The policy is to display only the basic information in these cases - name, age and place of birth but normally not where people live or work. Some business Uglows are happy to allow more information and that's fine by me - just let me know. But if any person objects to personal information about themselves being displayed, please let me know as soon as possible. It will be removed forthwith.

    The site concentrates on the UK although there is a limited page on emigration which should help other family historians in the USA, Australia or New Zealand. 

    I've now registered the domain name www.uglow.co.uk which will take you to this page. The new domain name means that I am able to be steve@uglow.co.uk. I can probably arrange this email address for any other Uglows that would like their own personalised number plate.
