Welcome to "Scarisbrick - on the Internet"… and a special "Hello" to those of us just known as "Scaz/Skaz" or "Scazzer/Skazzer". I have created this website for the information of all members of the Scarisbrick family and for anyone researching (or just having an interest in) the Scarisbrick name. Whilst researching my family tree I entered "scarisbrick" into the Google search engine and was surprised to see that there were nearly 11,000 responses (there are now 136,000!) On closer investigation I noticed that there were several repeat entries and so, after many hours of filtering and sorting, I have compiled the lists you can now see on this site. I hope that it will significantly reduce the time spent trawling through all those pages of the internet. Most of the information shown on the site has been collated from websites and web pages readily accessible on the internet, using various internet search engines. The UK Electoral Roll information was found on the 192.com website and on UK-Info Disks. I do not, in any way, wish to cause any offence, so if anyone has an objection to their details being shown on this site, please let me know, as soon as possible, via my email address. There are probably many duplicate entries but, until a link has been found between them, I have entered each name, or item, separately. The majority of the information shown on the site was found on the internet during July and August of 2003 but I am reviewing and updating the information as regularly as possible, so please keep returning to the site to check for new or amended entries. If you see any errors please email me directly with details. If you would like to share information with other Scarisbricks or make any comments about the site, please sign the Guestbook or if you are not listed on the site but would like to be, click here. I hope you find the site interesting. Enjoy!
