About CuriousFox

CuriousFox was created to allow people to post messages about genealogy and local history without exposing their email address to spammers or compromising their privacy. We take privacy very seriously. CuriousFox never releases email addresses for marketing purposes, and only sends out the minimum number of emails for the correct functioning of the site.

We also take online payment security very seriously. Online payments are handled by both PayPal, and Stripe. We never see any credit card information and are only told your name and email address.

We wanted to help people researching common surnames like Smith and Davis. Finding the correct Smith family becomes a lot easier if you can search at a village or hamlet level. But at the same time, families often lived in a small cluster of villages so we geocoded the whole site so users can search for a surname within a specified number of miles around any location. You can also search by traditional county, or throughout the whole of UK and Ireland.

Over the years we have built a huge database of place names including many obscure and forgotten villages and hamlets. Many people find CuriousFox and invaluable research tool just for finding places. If you can't find a place, we are always happy to do a bit of research and see if we can help locate it.

CuriousFox is a semi-hobby business set up and run by a husband and wife team from their home in North Cornwall.

CuriousFox lives at Jacobstow, Cornwall, UK
