Hi Sue. You found me some ancestors a couple of weeks ago. Could I ask you for another look-up please. I'm after some Harris's in Arnold in Nottinghamshire. I've been given info on Daniel Harris christened there in 1809 to James and Mary. Thanks Helen

Hello Sue, Have u anything for Knottingley, West Yorks? In particular the Wright family - Gamaliel d 1785 m Elizabeth d 1772; their son John b 1755 m Margaret d 1810; their son Joseph b 1776 m Mary; and finally their son Joshua b 1795 who committed the hanging offence of moving to Lancashire ;) Fingers crossed, Gordon Fairbairn

hi katherine, there are 389 entries for proctor spread through yorkshire, have you any dates or names, sue.


Gordon Report 6 Jun 2004 19:16

Goodness, I wouldn't have a clue Sue! Main church in Knottingley seems to be St Botolph's, and Knottingley is often linked to Pontefract I gather. Is that any help?? Thanks - Gordon


Gordon Report 6 Jun 2004 20:05

Thanks for trying Sue - Regards - Gordon

Hi Sue, please could you check Rotherham for me and see if there is a William Milner b 1832/3? Thank you, Marian

Sue Lambrini Smith

Sue Lambrini Smith Report 8 Jun 2004 00:13

mab Report 8 Jun 2004 10:34

Ronald Report 10 Jun 2004 16:22

Hello Sue Dont know if your records cover nottingham, but if they do, could you have a look for Joseph Freeston. Born c1822 at Hyson Green, Nottingham. Many thanks Ron

Sue Lambrini Smith

Sue Lambrini Smith Report 11 Jun 2004 19:03

hi ronald. although this isnt the name you asked for, there is only one entry for the 'freeston' surname on ALL of the disc. it must have been quite an unusual name, so it might turn out to be some use to you later. st mary's, nottinghamshire.-marriages. john freeston <M> sarah ogden. 2 sept 1799. hope this helps at some point, sue.


Ronald Report 12 Jun 2004 01:35

Many thanks Sue Iam sure it will be of use . there will be a connection if Iget back far enough


Hannah Report 12 Jun 2004 11:59

Hello Sue, I would be grateful if you could find any information on a Christopher Waller Faraday christened in Ingleton around 1792 (particularly birth/marriage), and James Faraday born around 1756, Ingleton - if your records cover Ingleton of course! Faraday is often spelt Farraday/Farady/Farrady or with one or two 'e's instead of 'a's. Any help would be very welcome - I've got stuck on this one. Hannah
