Hello and welcome to this study dedicated to the family name Backhouse and its variants. This study came about, like many others, from my own efforts to trace my family tree. I have always been aware that the name was not very common and research has shown only a few thousand examples of the name have existed at any one time. In fact during my research the numbers pointed to a possible single ancestor around the 13th century which is around the time surnames began to be used. Also images of individuals bearing the Backhouse name seemed to have a particular look, giving a little more credence to a possible single ancestor.

Tracing a family tree can be difficult but with a little help is made so much easier. So I thought why not share what I have found to help others with the same name. Also by presenting all the information I have collected it might prompt others to contribute too, so helping even more. In particular there is a frequently asked question, where can I find the descendants of John Backhouse, Yeoman of Moss Side, so that's where I started. I hope that you enjoy my website.
