Re: wilson, farmers at Wetwang, Fimber, and Kirby Grindyth

Wilson is a very common name in East Yorkshire. I have many Wilsons in my family tree – including some 18 named Robert. So it’s really difficult to pin down a particular family without some idea of dates and places of birth, marriage and death, etc. I’ve had a quick look in the available census reco...

Re: John HOPE & Elizabeth (nee STONE(s)) in Kirkburn

In case it helps, there are numerous user-posted family trees on Ancestry which include William Hope and Jane Jefferson. Like you, most of them have William's parents as John Hope (1744) and Elizabeth Stone (1743). It would appear that John Hope was baptised on 23 Apr 1744 at Weaverthorpe, son of a ...

Re: chapman/waites from lund & Fenby families

Thanks Peter. I think I may have the details you posted but I'll cross check them just to be sure. I've realised that the "View unread posts" function doesn't highlight edits to previously viewed posts. Perhaps "Mr Admin" needs to add a new function? NB: I've spotted a small error. On the William Mi...

Re: chapman/waites from lund & Fenby families

Hi Peter.

Unless I've made a mistake, Lydia Pearcy Waites's brother George Frederick Waites (1854-1928) is a grandfather of Tremal's Sydney Richard Waites (1919-1993).

Re: chapman/waites from lund & Fenby families

Do you have Sydney Waites, 21.1.1919 from Lund in your tree? Mother might have been a Wrigglesworth? I am connected to the Waites family of Lund by marriage via the Grubb and Chapman families. I have just added the branch containing George Richard Waites and his wife Margaret Ruth Wrigglesworth and...

Re: Tomlinson

Sean, Thomas Waites Tomlinson (1853-1931) and Mary Jane Bentley (1859-1921) married in 1880 and had, I believe, 15 children. NB: The 1911 census gives this number as 14, which can probably be explained by leaving out Mary’s illegitimate son Thomas (1876). They are => Thomas Bentley Tomlinson (1876 H...
