Trying to find the parents of John, he was born in Horsforth, Yorkshire, parents probably born in Lincolnshire and father may have been a stonemason or similar. Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks one and all for your efforts with John Poucher 1853 - 1912. He is certainly the John Poucher married firstly to Jane Hannah Wright 1860-92 and secondly to Eliza Wall 1867-1922, but it is still a puzzle as to the father. I have no known siblings for him.

from Rodney


We now know his marriage cert shows his father to be another John Poucher, dec'd stone masons labourer. Some of the family believe he may have come from Lincolnshire. It is him I am after but have drawn blanks so far. Any suggestions? Thanks
