Sedgefield is a parish in the south east of Durham County, about 15 miles north of Stockton. The parish registers begin in 1580, but it isn't until the mid-18th century that the Conn family appear in the parish. George and Elizabeth Conn appeared in Sedgefield in 1742 with the birth of their first child, and Francis Conn in 1746 with the birth of Eliza, his only daughter. It is assumed that George and Francis are brothers. Their origin is unknown, although it has been suggested that they came either from Scotland or Ireland.
This is a very extensive family, mainly because George and Elizabeth had seven sons, although two of the sons, Richard and Thomas, only appear as baptisms. In subsequent generations the family move into nearby parishes such as Wingate and Penshaw, and by the mid 1900s they had spread more widely across the country.Only the early members of the family are given here, but if anyone wants to follow any of the family lines the author may be able to help.
