This tree details the Needham's from High Needham in Derbyshire who are pedigreed back to the 12th century and are the ancestors of the Earls of Kilmorey. The oldest person in the tree is Old Father de Nedeham; he was the first recorded Needham in England. The question that needs to be answered is; do all Needham's descend from here? A number do including those in Hertfordshire, the Derbyshire villages and Sheffield.
