In Memory of our Wauchope family members from Wales

Like Ireland and Scotland, Wales has a vibrant, healthy modern music scene based on instruments and music that stretch back hundreds of years.  Today there are over 200 choirs in Wales, several formed in the 1800s, are still active.

Wales has a history of descendants across the globe. Did you know that sixteen of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence in America in 1776 had Welsh roots, including Thomas Jefferson?

 

The first Welsh immigrants to America and Canada were as early as the 1600s. In Patagonia, South America a strong colony of Welsh-speaking ancestors remain today. Many people also migrated to Wales from across the world thanks to the boom of the coal industry. Records show that between 1851 and 1911, around 366,000 people came to the South Wales area to set up home. The migration of people in and out of Wales has left a significant number of Welsh descendants worldwide.
