Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Place name not found

The Parish Registers of Kirkburton Vol 2, p lxxvii mentions a survey of Almondbury 1584, the estate of a Thomas Lockwood.
His land included Dudmanstone (Deadmanstone), a house called Bridgroyd, one house and garden called Dodgeroyd and one house and garden in ye tenure of Uxor Shaw. It also mentions land at Sturley (Stirley).

From this it sounds like Berry Brow to me and having looked at the maps I see a Dodd's Royd near Armitage Bridge, opposite Station Lane.

If you press the ALT + SPACE keys together it should bring up the systems box which has the option to maximise the screen you are looking at. Hopefully clicking maximise will restore your screen to full size.


Denbighshire / Re: Wrono Punterling of Bodfari

I have since found that William de Punterleya made a charter in 1093 in which he granted the manor of Bodfari to the monks of St Werburgh in Chester. From this I also think that the name was probably Norman in origin.

The Calderdale From Weaver to Web site has this book, here is a link:

Richard Peck of Southowram 3rd March 1439. It starts on page 12 of the reader (page 8 in the book) and continues onto the next page.

I would have thought that there is likely to be a family connection if he was left property in a will

It is confusing.Not helped by there being three Shibden Halls. There is the one near Stump Cross then there are or were Upper and Lower Shibden Halls near to Catherine Slack. I think that Upper Shibden Hall may also be known as Old Shibden Hall.

I can recommend Malcolm Bull's Calderdale Companion website which may help

You could also try the Yorkshire Surname List


If your video looks ok but theirs doesn't are you sure that the problem isn't at their end? Is the problem with only one other person's videos or with several?
