Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788433474, Paperback)

This book represents more than twenty years of research on an ancient Shropshire, England, family that has never before received close scrutiny. It should interest both English and American genealogists and family historians. The history follows the Salter line from its proven beginnings in Shropshire, England, in the late sixteenth century to the present. It traces the lives of the first three generations in a relatively unchanging agrarian setting, moves through the period of transition to modest geographic and social mobility experienced by the next three generations, continues with the bifurcation and reunification of the line in the nineteenth century, and finally arrives at the widespread geographic settlement and social diversity that mark the twentieth century family in England and the United States. Ten generations of the Salter family are discussed. Collateral families included in the history include notably Edwards, Evans, Feast, Gough, Jackson, Kyffin, Langford, Linley, Lyth, Owen, Shaw, Simon (England and Wales), Harward (Ireland), Cooper, Hewins, Horton, Lockwood, Pistole, Thayer, Webster, and Wogenstahl (United States). A full-name plus subject index, a separate index to Salter names, and an appendix with a modified register listing the English and American descendants of the author's great-grandparents, James and Mary Salter, complete this work.
