Cheecky Face,

To send me a personal message click on my user name (cjl) which appears on the left hand side of the screen.

You will then see my personal profile and near the bottom of the page is the option to send a personal message, click on that and you should then be able to view the screen which enables you to type a personal message to me.

Have not as yet made a connection to Harry Petts born in Bradford.  My line of the Petts family went from Derbyshire to Wakefield.

Best Wishes

I have hit the same brick wall

Have you made any progress since posting this message that you can share with me ?

I have a guess as to George's ancestors - but no proof.

Hi Spendlove

Thank you - I found the article from the Derby Mercury 25-04-1821 very useful.

On the marriage certificate of Daneil Petts to Mary Fox, his father George Petts occupation is "Gamekeeper".

I consider this Daniel to be the brother to George Petts of 1819...

DebbieG provided a link to George Petts and his brothers William and Daniel

Their baptisms can also be found on familysearch.org under IGI-C046801 but William is Pett - George is Potts and Daniel is Petts.

I think I also found them with this site

You may find it useful for other family members in Derbyshire

Hi Cheecky Face,

I think we have been in touch before.  I am afraid that I haven't made any further progress with breaking down my brick wall regarding the parents of George Petts.

Carnival Carol has also contacted me and we are looking at this together.  Possibly between the three of us we can finally break down this brick wall.

I would welcome any information which you are kind enough to share with me.

Best Wishes

Hi - I've just started researching my family tree & am new to this forum & how it works. My father was an Edward Petts and his family lived around the Barnsley/Wakefield area. My mother is still alive and has furnished me with a certain amount of information going back as far as she can remember. I must admit I'm struggling and have some anomolies. Could we open up a dialogue and maybe we can help each other?

Kind regards.
