I began researching my branch of the RENN family some years ago after being contacted by Frank Renn of Robertsbridge in Sussex to see where I fitted into his researches. So far I have traced ancestors with certainty back to a marriage in 1790 in London.


My wife and I spent a good deal of time in the Family Record Centre (FRC) in London extracting RENN Births, Deaths and Marriage from the ENGLISH archive which starts in 1837. I have placed these on Excel spreadsheets for ease of reference. My family members are shown in bold type.


This data is registration information, 1837 - 2004 and should allow you to obtain certificates.

I have also included some IGI records on RENNS but cannot vouch for their accuracy.


I would be grateful for any information readers may be able to supply me on the Renn family. Especially my grandfather, Thomas William Renn, born 28th December 1883 in Southsea, Hants. who went missing in 1922.

His last known address was care of Thomas Cook and co. London so he probably went abroad?.
