English Origins & Scottish Forebears.

The information on this web page derives from the Family Tree as compiled by many Badgers over the years and the book "David Badger - Preacher, Pioneer, Patriach" written by my father Donald Gibson Badger. Work on both of these endeavours appeared to happen concurrently. My father was a deeply religious man and he may have resarched the family tree as a background to the book or it may have dovetailed into the work that Colin Badger was doing on the family tree. To this day I am not sure if earlier information on the Hornchurch, Essex history was unavailable or if Dad was broken-hearted at finding out he was a sassenach. The main thrust of the web-page is the descendants of David Badger but should more properly be on the Haddington Badger line which was started by John Badger.
