What I would like to know is their first born child was James Henry Holland christened 25 Dec 1846 Nafferton Yorkshire and as he did not come out to New Zealand in 1863 I think he must have died.
I have been told he died in 1850 but am unable to find proof of this.

Is there someone who could look this up for me as I am at a loss.

Their other children were
George William 1849
Mary Jane 1851
Frederick Holland 1854
Charles Henry 1856
Henry Holland 1859.
All were christened in the Driffield Wesleyan Church
Many thanks Diana Holland


Hi Diana
I have many Robsons on my tree and wondered if you could tell me who Ann Robson's parents were please? I now live in Lowthorpe.

Census records (see my previous postings) tell us that Ann Robson was born about 1825 in Brigham. This almost certainly means that she is the Ann Robson who was baptised at Foston on the Wolds (the parish includes Brigham) on 20 Nov 1825, daughter of James and Jane Robson.

Judith,

Ann Robson had at least two siblings, one of whom may connect with your Robson family?

Thanks Ian. My Robsons are mainly from Kirkburn, Lund & Cherry Burton so I may have to go a long way back to try and track a connection with Foston on the Wolds.
