Durham / Any Family Link between Miss HOOD of Selby & DICKINSON of Darlington?
« on: Thursday 12 July 18 19:12 BST (UK)  »

Any family link between Miss HOOD of Selby & the DICKINSON family of Darlington, showing up on holiday together in 1885 and 1889 please?

English Lakes Visitor, 15 August 1885
Hall Mrs, Abbottsleigh House
Peddie Mrs & fam          Manchester
Dickinson Mr & fam  Darlington
Hood Miss                       Selby

Llandudno Register and Herald, 18 July 1889
Address Mrs Evans, Shrewsbury ho, Church Walks, Llandudno
Mr, Ms and Miss Barber,            Bangor
Mr, Mrs and Master Smith,        New Brighton
Mr, Mrs & Master Dickinson, Darlington
Miss Hood,                                    Selby

Now, I have just found a second earlier holiday entry 4 years earlier. DICKINSON of Darlington obviously know Miss HOOD of Selby, perhaps DICKINSON is related to another HOOD (currently unknown), please?

I'm afraid I have a brick-wall with my George HOOD of Selby (born about 1785 to 1787) before a marriage of 1815 at Selby.

There was a Jno Dickinson (Church Official) Witness to the George HOOD = Sarah RUSSELL July 1815, Selby Marriage.

Thanks, Mark


Found the following in a book under 1812:-

In London, Mr H. Waldrow Hood, Surgeon, son of the late Rev. Robert Hood of Holbeach, to Miss Matilda Rosetta Meynoyo, youngest daughter of Mr. Ralph Meynoyo, merchant of London, and a commissary-general at Cadiz.

I had never heard of H. Waldrow Hood and be interested in anything further about the Marriage or the couple, especially H. Waldrow HOOD?

ADDED: This appears to be his death
27 July 1821. On Tuesday last, aged 33, Mr H. W. Hood, surgeon and apothecary, of Holbeach.

There is a link to the transcript of the PCC 1811 Will of the Rev. Robert Hood, Clerk of Holbeach (at the bottom of the page in the link)

Thank you, Mark


I am wondering how Rebecca RUSSELL, was Niece in the DUNHILL Household in 1851, please?

Rebecca RUSSELL,  Niece, Unmarr, 14,                    born Selby, Yorkshire.


Some general research on DUNHILL (spelt Dunnill)

My Selby Transcriptions ...

Wm son of Wm Dunnill of Thorne, Innkeeper by Winifred his wife dau of Richd Pretious of Carleton, Farmer. Mary dau of Thos Heald of Carcroft, Austen Parish, Butcher by Dorothy his wife.

1851 Admon record for Richard Russell, record says he was a widower and reference to Wm Dunhill.

8th April 1824
The sloop Wake, Dunhill, from Selby for London, was towed into Harwich with the loss of the boom and mainsail.

Leeds Intelligencer, 11th January 1827
A few days ago, at Selby, aged 58, Mr. Wm. Dunhill, of the Duke of York Inn, in that place.

Also found this:-
Hull Packet, 6 September 1833 ...

Extract of a paragraph regarding Mr. Gutteridge Ship-builder at Selby:-
 ... another, a large brig for the Messrs. Standering and Co., the extensive ship owners of Selby ; and the other, a fine schooner for Wm. Dunhill, Esq., of Barlby Bank, near Selby. The building of ships is productive of great good in the town of Selby, employing as it does so great a number of men and boys a great wages.

Thank you.



Any information at all please? Census, Masters Certificate / Service information?

Quite a few places surrounding Selby on navigable River Ouse / Selby Canal, some being Brayton, Barlow, Barlby, Wistow, Hemingborough, etc.

Capt. Richard RUSSELL married Mary TURNER at Selby Abbey Church 7th July 1835 by Banns
Witnesses: John Midwood & Hannah Eraser (neither witness seems to be a church official)

Thanks Mark


George Wrayton GRUBB (Mother TURNER, from GRO Index), Birth Registration District of Hull March Qtr 1860
George Railton GRUBB, Death Registration District of Hull March Qtr 1861
the Same Person?

I have a suspicion they might be the same person and very important to prove with any baptism / burial document that they are, please?

Thanks Mark


John Hood & M. Slipper were each occupying a part of a House divided into two Tenements at Mill Gate, Selby in 1786 and John Hood later in 1802 (transcribed below).

The same House at Selby, divided into two Tenements changed owners in 1790. I am wondering if any of those Surnames named in the 1790 property transfer had any links to a HOOD please:-

Thomas EADON of Selby, Gentleman (looked at before).
William RIMINGTON of Pontefract, Yeoman.
Joseph TATE of Wistow, Yeoman.
John TODD of Selby, Tanner.
John TURNER of Selby, Tallow Chandler, Grocer, a Book Keeper a few years later.
John SPENCER of Selby, Grocer. (later a Gent.)
Morley WHARREY of Selby, Gentleman.

Jno Todd
Witnessed by Jno Dodsworth and John Myers.


Fragmenta Genealogica, Volume 12, by Frederick Arthur Crisp, page 93, has information about Morley Wharrey, the Wharrey family of Selby; Gainsborough and a Granddaughter Jane Jowitt of Pheobe Morley dying 13th of 2nd Mo. 1848 and her remains buried at Pontefract on the 18th.

The dating arrangement in the book for this Wharrey family has adopted the Quaker system, where the names of the months are not used.


Later Transfer of Same Property

Spencer to Hembrough Indenture of Lease and Release 8 & 9th Days of October 1802.

Between John Spencer of Selby in the County of York Gentleman of the one part and Thomas Hembrough of the same place Yeoman of the other part ...

Very Summary Notes of the Will of John Spencer of Selby, January 1810

Some RABY, MIDDLETON Summary Notes, at Selby (of interest to me)

1743 Robt RABY married Jane MIDDLETON.
1777 Christopher OBEE married Mary RABY, ages given, (a Mary OBEE died 1779).
1794 William ARMSTRONG married Margaret RABY (one wit. was Hannah PEARSON).
1794 William RABY married Eliz GARTHWAIT (Wm was of Manchester), Grocer, (one wit. was Jno SPENCER), ages given.

1779 & 1781 RABY baptisms give descent to MIDDLETON.


One Deed Memorial Registration (Reference)

The property of John Spencer of Selby Gentleman at Millgate, Selby, changed hands in 1802/1803 from John Spencer, Gent., to the new owner Thomas Hembrough of Selby, Yeoman, still had John HOOD as occupier. (Registered Wakefield 1803, Vol. EN, page 314, No.423).

[This property occupied by John HOOD & Mr HOOD appears to have been owned by John Turner, prior to John Spencer, Gent., per Selby Land Tax]



Found the following on a Google capture, whilst searching for the QUAKER place called SUMMERCROFT (alias Summercroft Farm) at Drax, another source says Summercroft was at Long Drax, near Selby.

"Francis Cook was born in the pub in Asselby in 1801 He left Asselby to become a farmer at Drax The information I have is quite vague. I know that in the 1501 census he lived at Summercroft where he" ...

Looking at where the Grandson, aged 0 years was born "Long Drax".

However, is the Census residence SUMMERCROFT please?

Family Search only gave me the Registration District of Selby
1851 Census
Francis COOK, Head, Marr, 50, Agricultural Lab., born Asselby [abt 1801]
Elizabeth COOK, Wife, Marr, 48,                               born LONG DRAX, Yorkshire [abt 1803]
Ann EASTWOOD, Dau, Marr, 24, Visitor Waterman's Wife, born Asselby.
John COOK, Son, 23, Unmarr, Agricultural Labourer, born Asselby.
Mary COOK, Dau, 21, Daur, Daughter on a Visit, born Asselby.
James Eastwood, Grandson, 0 yrs, born LONG DRAX.

Keeping my fingers crossed that the residence will be SUMMERCROFT, or they will be living in a tied property on the Summercroft Farm?

SUMMERCROFT FARM about 123 acres (when offered for sale early 20th Century), also had a Quaker Burial Ground (according to newspapers) and in 1835 Thos Marshall lived there.

A Borthwick (York University) online pdf, says the burials at Summercroft have had to be made up from the Quaker Meeting Minutes (sounds like the original Registers of the Quaker Farm were lost?)
