My grandfather was John (known as jack) Atkinson. He was born in Hornsea, E.Yorks.(1894) He married Olive Wrightson and they lived in Withernsea.He had brothers and sisters called Frederick, Alice, Fanny, Edith, Sarah.His parents were James Atkinson and Emily Sherwood.I Would love to hear from any one who might be connected to my family. I have lots of info going back to the late 1870s

Hi Judith, I don't know if we are related but my father and grandfather where also John Atkinson (jack) and born in Hull as far as I have found out so far. Maybe it was a family name?
