Hi to all who have replied and thank you for your time. Sorry if I have messed the system up by starting the same topic on the different forums and not being clear. What I really need is to find someone with family history relating to 16 Church St, Ilkley. Antony Towers (b.1959) is William Edward's grandson, couldn't find any children from Arthur. Have searched the trees and left messages for the relevant entries for Antony. If no joy will try

As far as can be deduced, you are not related in any way to anyone who lived at the that correct?

And please, in future, stick to one post per topic..............across all boards
