It is not obvious from the slightly confusing title that this is a genealogical history of the Gloucestershire family with the surname Organ. (The derivation of the name has never been definitively established, but the most likely is probably an Anglicisation of the Irish surname O’Regan). As can be seen from the size and weight of the book, it is the result of a vast amount of detailed research.
Berkeley is a small town close to the Severn estuary roughly half-way between Bristol and Gloucester, and North Nibley is five miles to the south-east. The main overseas branches of the family are in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland in Australia, Canada and the south of the USA.
The book is still available from the author at £23.80 (including UK postage).
