Hello Peter

I too am related to the Irelands fron Weaverthorpe/Wold Newton and have found your info. very usefull already. Could you tell me how you know the name of the pub that Richard Ireland 1732 had in Wold Newton. I have found local records with Richard and his family and that he was a liciencee but wondered how you knew the name of the Inn.

I live in the East Riding of Yorkshire, just down the road from these villages. I havr traced my family back to George Hunter Ireland 1820 from Wold Newton ( My 3rd great grandfather)

Hope this reaches someone!!!

I am researching my branch of the Ireland family from Yorkshire. Richard Ireland born Weaverthorpe 1732 owned the Red Lion Pub in Wold Newton from the mid to late 1700's. One of his son's Michael also had a son Michael who went to Canada in 1819 with his brothers. Michael's eldest son George went to Australia from Canada for the Gold Rush of the 1850's. This was the start of a large branch of the Ireland family in Australia.

I am interested in exchanging any information about the Ireland family from Weaverthorpe.

Has you can see from previous postings on this thread I am also related to the Ireland family.

George Hunter Ireland born in 1821 was also my great, great, great grandfather.

Would you be interested in comparing research?

A belated welcome to Driffield Online.

Which member of the Ireland family would you like to begin comparing our research on?

It made my day yesterday to discover a possible distant relative.

Thank you CJL

After an afternoon at beverley archives researching the Irelands from Wold Newton and then making contact with you it turned out to be a very productive day!

I have been digging for info since last summer, although as I work full time and have 3 young boys my time is limited! Myself and my parents share a family tree on ancestry.com. If you are able you could log on there to see where we have got to, it is free at the library too. Our tree comes under 'charlesireland5'. I also recieved the 'Who do you think you are' computer software for Christmas which I am busily filling in, trying to be as accurate as possible. We tended to rush in a little with the ancestry website and we did make a few mistakes along the way!

I am facinated by the story of the Red lion pub in Wold Newton and only yesterday found parish records dating back to 1730s with Richard Ireland calling himself liciencee on his childrens baptism records. I wondered how you knew the name of this pub? I did ask for any possible liciencee records at the archieves but there seems to be none. I ran out of time yesterday so will be returning to go through the school records for Wold Newton/Weaverthorpe and more parish records to fill in the details for John Ireland 1783 and his father John Ireland 1763 and families.



Best Wishes

You certainly did have a very productive day yesterday.

Thank you for your e mail address. Although if I were you I would now delete your e mail address from your post, you don't want to open yourself up to tons of unsolicited junk mail.

I also have a tree on the ancestry web site. I will e mail you early this evening if that is okay and we can begin to compare information.


Best Wishes

Hello Gill

Small world indeed! Great minds must think alike!
I think our lines must cross, the area is definately right. I wonder is your Ann Ireland born 1722 is a sister of my Richard Ireland born 1732 in Weaverthorpe? Do you know Ann's parents?

I will keep looking

Best wishes

Karen

Hello Jason,

Mary Ireland was my great grandmother, daughter of George Hunter Ireland, a farm labourer from Wold Newton, and Elizabeth( nee Staveley)who was born in Reighton in about 1823 and died at Bempton in 1893. Mary and Thomas had 8 children, 7 of them born in Driffield
George Robert was born about 1872 at Demming, near Burton Agnes. He lived in Beverley as an adult.I believe his younger brother,Andrew, moved there too.
Hannah, my grandmother, born 1875, married James Foster who worked at Station Mills, Nafferton.
Julia, born about 1878, married Joseph Grimshaw from Bridlington and stayed in Driffield.
Jack Cooper was a joiner like his father. Thomas and Harry, his brothers, may have followed the same trade.
Mary Cooper, born about 1887, married John Belt. I think they went to live in Peterborough.
I don't remember any of my great aunts and uncles but I have more information if you need it.

Phoebe Newton
