Foord Bowes and Tophams

Post by whitelion58 » Fri Jan 20, 2006 5:35 pm

Hi
I am looking for any information about Edward Topham. He lived at Wold Cottage, Thwing and died in 1820. His daughter Juliet married Reverend Timothy Fysh Foord-Bowes. ANY information about these familes would be much appreciated, I descend from Edward.
Thanks in advance
Tim Hunter (born in Leeds)

You can contact the current occupants of Wold Cottage (now a B&B), as they seemed to know a good bit about the history of the place when I was there in September: http://www.woldcottage.co.uk/
