JACKIE, there are 185 horners, most of them around BURNSALL - had a look on the map, its near appletreewick, approx 16/20 miles from halifax. do you know james mums maiden name, and have you got any one called lister horner, from 1604 there are loads of mentions of the surname, just look to be one gen away. if you can connect them to burnsall, e mail me, sue.

Thanks Sue -John Horner is as far as I've got. They were weavers (as I suppose most of Halifax was, which is no help to you whatsoever!) Son James married Margaret Rhodes. Any help? This marriage may have been Leeds, Wortley as this is where their children were born. Sorry, have nothing else to try and identify the right ones. Thanks for looking all the same. Jackie xx

Hi Sue, Would it be possible that you have the records for Bradford and Pontefract? I am looking for my Great great grandmother Mary Ann Close's family. Her Mother Elizabeth Rushforth was born in Bradford in 1833, daughter of John and Hannah. I believe Hannah was born in Pontefract, although I do not have her Maiden Name. Thanks if cou can, and never mind if you can't, Jim

Hello Sue, If you can find time, could you look for the following for me please (all around Doncaster area): Birth of JOHN CAMPSAL (spelling my vary) abt 1739 in Sykehouse. If possible I would like to know who he married and when. I have found his daughter MARY CAMPSAL born abt 1774 in Fishlake. She married GEORGE ROWBOTTOM abt 1793 (in Armthorpe I think). Many thanks in advance. Jenny
