Further details


The Scaife Study Group (SSG) is run by volunteers as a non-profit making association. The membership is made up of those people with a Scaife connection who are interested in looking into the origins of the name and also investigating their own family history. Where connections become apparent, there will be an opportunity to contact other researchers.

The Journal

The Scaife Sentinel (series 1 and 2) is available on this website in electronic format. Anything contributing to research into the Scaife surname and its variations (over thirty exist, the most common being Skaife and Scafe) was considered to be a suitable theme for this publication. We are now producing occasional publications on the website (at least two per annum) and inviting active use of the online forums and the large quantity of Scaife-related material which is hosted here.


The subscription fee is 8.00 pounds sterling per annum.

The membership year runs from 1st May. If joining after January, your membership will expire on 30th April in the following year. You will receive online access to copies of the SSG's regular publication for the term of your membership. Online access for new members will start within 7 days of receipt of payment and end no less than 1 calendar year later. We regret that print subscriptions are now unavailable.
