The Lighter Side / Re: Strange coincidences in family history
« on: Wednesday 23 May 18 18:50 BST (UK)  »
When my maternal grandmother died back in 2000 mum found a handwritten note among her belongings listing the birth dates of her father and all her paternal aunts and uncles.  This began my interest (obsession) with family history.  I happily waded my way through census records and parish records and took the family back to the 1700's.

A couple of years later mum's paternal cousin mentioned he'd inherited a family bible from his mother.  She made him get it out of his attic and I went to have a look.  Laid out on the pages were 5 generations of my grandfather's family with dates of all births, marriages and deaths but what was at the top of the tree shocked me and I had to double check the records.  It turned out that my grandfather's 4 x grandfather was also my grandmother's 3xgrandfather, something they would never have known.

Hi,

I've been meaning to go to the British Library for years to read George's memoirs but easier if it's online.  I'd be very grateful if you could please send me the link and I'll have a read.  I've already got info on George's brothers and sisters and some of their children etc (if you need anything let me know) but you never know, it might provide some more useful links.

They are all a blinking nightmare - hopping from one place to another - but we'll catch them eventually!!!

I think I can see Margery Flintoft's birth but can't figure out if her dad is from Hawnby or not.  I know that there is a Flintoft link to land in Ampleforth but that's as far as I've got.  Will have another look at my records and see if I can spot anything.

The friend James Flintoft you can see in George's Will - as far as I know he's the nephew of his wife.

Hi EmmaLydia,

OK, I see it in the Will.   Do you have a death for Jane Cussons as I can see who I think could be her buried in Kirkdale but from Harome (near Helmsley)

Hi,

I have an original Will of George Cussons which is where I got the information.  Would be interested in how William Edwards grandson of William and Jane links to the William Edwards in Deptford

Kind regards

Hi,

Can't help with the children but I have a note of a grandson William Edwards who died before 1819, though his wife was still alive then
