Origins of Needham's in Castleton
In the origins section we focused on the derivation of the name and examined the two main places the Needham's are most likely to have come from; mainly Needham in Norfolk and High Needham in Derbyshire, It is clear that like those in the 21st century, children leave home. Thus over time the Needham's spread their wings and left the place they originated and moved around the country; see the distribution page.
Now we examine how the Needham's arrived in Castleton. If you read the section you will find that one line can be linked back to the Needham's originating from High Needham. But not all the Needham's are as fortunate hence the reason for the number of trees. This page must be looked at as work in progress and as more information becomes available the page will be updated
