Many Kettles here

Norfolk, England Kettles/Kiddells/etc. up until about 1750 (28K zipped GEDCOM file) contributed by Bob Leahy
Please keep in mind that many of the entries in the file are speculative -- e.g., if a Joe Kiddle was born in Dingley Dell in 1620, and a Joe Kiddle gets married in Dingley Dell in 1641, I have assumed they are the same Joe. [You will see many "Possibly" and "some "Probably" qualifiers in the entries -- they are a sign of speculation on my part] The file is a finding aid, NOT genealogy. Also, all K* surnames have been "normalized" to Kiddell, so the surname in the source could be any of the many variant spellings. Bob

Other Kettles (152K)
3880 people stored in a zipped Gedcom file. This database is designed as a finding aid, so for example 'Betsy Kettle' will also be listed as 'Elizabeth Kettle', but you should not assume that she was ever called Elizabeth.
Very little of the information has been rechecked; always check back to the original records and please let me know if you find any errors. Information about living individuals is withheld.
More Kettles (89K)
2343 more people, many from Suffolk, England. Zipped GEDCOM file. This is the file mentioned in the February 1999 edition of Suffolk Roots in the article "Kettle Steams Round Suffolk".

Ancient Ketils (18K)
274 people. All of the Ketil, Ulfketils, Anscetels etc in this database date from before the introduction of surnames and most of them are of Viking origin. Particularly interesting people are Ketil Flatnose, ruler of the Hebrides c860 and Ketel the thegn who wrote his will in East Anglia c1052 before leaving on a pilgrimage to Rome. The Ketels who have bit parts in the Viking Sagas should not be considered to be real historical people. Zipped GEDCOM file.
