WHITEHEAD - Essex & Yorkshire - Any Known Connection?
« on: Wednesday 24 July 13 10:56 BST (UK) »
On my Paternal line, I have WHITEHEAD's that come from the Finchingfield area of Essex and I've managed to trace them back to about 1775.
The earliest 2 gens I have in this line are
John WHITEHEAD (c1775 - ?) who in 1794 married Ann CLAYDEN (? - ?)
--- John (1795-1866) & George (1800 - ?)
John WHITEHEAD (1775-1866) married in 1819 Susannah GLASCOCK (1798-1853)
--- William, John, Maria, Samuel, Ann, George, Eliza, Charles, Alfred, Emma (births between 1818 & 1838)

On my Maternal line though, I have WHITEHEAD's from the Arkengarthdale area of Yorkshire, but I'm only back to the early 1800's there.
The earliest 2 gens of that line I have are
Matthias WHITEHEAD (listed as age 35 in 1841, not present in 1851) who in 1825 married Catherine WILKINSON (c1806 - c1868)
---John, Ann, Obediah*, William, Catherine, Edward, Deborah, Matthias (children born between 1826 and 1840)
Obediah* WHITEHEAD (c1831-1890) who in 1851 married Mary RAISBECK (c1832-1922)
--- Catherine, Robert, Elizabeth, Mary Jane, Margaret, Matthias, Jonathan, John (children born between 1851 & 1866)

Is anyone familiar with these two WHITEHEAD lineages and know if they join up back up the tree somewhere, or of I'm missing children (which I probably am)
for example, is Matthias of Arkengarthdale the son of John & Ann of Essex?
