Staffordshire / harrison - Old Hill
« on: Saturday 11 August 07 19:47 BST (UK)  »
looking for harrison family who until 1880 resided in Old Hill. Benjamin Harrison married sarah hill in Dudley in 1876. they had 6 children who survived
Beatrice (beatt)
George Albert

They moved to Staveley Derbys in 1880.

Beatt and Sarah never married.
Ruth married someone called Davies
George Albert married a widow called Mrs Steele
Ethel married Ernest Hardy from Stavely, Derbys.

can anyone help any further back
Benjamins father was also Benjamin and could have been a miner.

Was told possibly could have been gypsy's as they were in the area at the time. That would take care of the gob like a foghorn, aserbic comments and the wonder lust.

hope I got the right county as I know the line between worcestershire/ staffordshire and Shropshire is fine and moveable line.

Derbyshire / Hardy
« on: Saturday 11 August 07 19:36 BST (UK)  »
I know all my Hardy family back to 1708 come from the same few villages of Sandiacre, Long Eaton and Sawley. Does anyone out there know where the Hardy family orginated from. Could this be a scots name or is it definitely a Derbyshire name/ English name.


Lanarkshire / hardy's
« on: Friday 07 April 06 13:39 BST (UK)  »
my distant relative got married in Derbyshire. His name was William Hardy and married Mary Bott in 1703. He called his children William, Anne and David. Unusual for English children of the time but not unusual for Scotts children to be called after Stuart monarchs. Can anyone help and let me know how I find out if he was Scottish or if he was English with a passion for Scotland before civil registration. Thanks

I have the onerous task of doing my father in law's family tree (he's 85!).
Arthur thornton was Ivor, Louie and Noel's father. He was censused in 1901 aged 15 at 83 Cowcliffe Road in Huddersfield. His father was Alfred and his mother was Eliza (nee armitage?) I can't get back any further as yet. Does anyone else have any information on him or his siblings. Sorry don't have census info on me at present. Arthur married Emma Cooper. see separate item on ons.

Any information would be helpful.

Yorkshire (North Riding) / schuberts in Whitby

A friend has a relations who was called Franz Schubert and had a shop in Whitby. During ww1 he had his windows smashed because he was German. Does anyone have any information on him, his shop, the incident or his descendants.

It is possible he was headed for America but landed in Middlesborough/ whitby/ scarborough as a stopping off point before travelleing to Liverpool to get accross the Atlantic.

Is is possible that he was Jewish and trying to evade the clearences in Eastern Europe.
