1851/1861 West Riding Lookup - Giggleswick, Parker
« on: Tuesday 08 February 05 19:22 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I'd really appreciate an 1851 &/ 1861 census lookup for my g.g.g grandfather Edward Parker, as I'd like to find him with his family.  I have him on all the subsequent censuses: he was born about 1842/3 in Giggleswick, West Riding.

In 1871 he is working as a farm servant at Farm House, Stainforth (which came under the parish of Giggleswick) - he may be here in 1861 as he would have been of working age by then.  On all the later censuses he is a farmer at Rome Farm in Giggleswick.  I'm wondering if his family lived here and it was left to him between 1871 and 1881 (there is a rumour to this effect in our family, but I'm very suspicious of these ;D).  In 1871 there are also two Parker families of the right age to be Edward's family at Bell(e) Hill in Giggleswick.   Sorry I can't be more specific with an address  :(

Many thanks to anyone who can help,

Hannah

I have just seen your look-up request for Edward Parker, Rome farm, Giggleswick. 

My husband descends from Rebecca Parker b.1837 d/o Joseph and Ellen (Wilson). Rebecca married John Brown and had Joseph. she died at Lodge 25th Jan.1861 age 24 and is buried at St.Alkelda`s Church. Giggleswick with her brother William who died at Rome 27th Apr.1838 age 3. Also buried there, Ellen Parker d.Rome 27th Mar.1876 age 67 and Joseph Parker d.2nd Apr.1908 age 69, John Parker of Nelson formerly of this parish d.10th Mar.1904 age 72.

Joseph Parker b.1806 was buried at Settle 1893. age 87.

You may already have this info. but I just had to make contact as we are obviously researching the same family.

Hi Richard,

I haven't yet identified the owners of Rome Farm.  The Parkers were tenant farmers there for over 100 years until 1906, when they were given notice to quit.  It may be that the farm was either sold at that point or started to be farmed by the owner's family, although I haven't any further information yet.

Best wishes,

Hannah
