Thank you very much, Libby9 for posting information about further Derenzy/ De Renzy names in Yorkshire. Sorry I became sidetracked from West Yorkshire to North Yorkshire. They moved about quite a lot! I have made a note of these indviduals for further research. Good to hear that they have a presence in Scarborough.

I have seen the name as a middle name in New Zealand.

Thanks, Hurworth. Yes, I have seen De Renzy in New Zealand. Since my last post here, I found further De Renzy Robinsons in the censuses but I haven't yet been able to place those individuals in my Robinson tree yet. They are somehow related. The De Renzy name is being used as a middle name in branches quite obscurely related to each other on the tree so far researched.

Hello Stephen,

It is now well over two years since you posted this message, but I have just joined into Rootschat and found your trail of messages regarding the name de Renzy. I am a direct descendant of Rev George de Renzy and maybe able to fill in some of the gaps in the de renzy history. Posted 1 January 2018.

Hello, I have an unusual name in my Robinson family tree - De Renzy. The individual is my great grandfather, William Alford Robinson's brother, Hugh De Renzy Robinson (1891-1917). Hugh died of his wounds in a hospital during WW1. Having extensively researched the family back to the eighteenth century (they appear to have come from Scarborough, North Yorkshire), I find no other person with this name, De Renzy. The Robinsons moved to Leeds from Scarborough in about the 1820s. Many baptisms and marriages at Leeds St Peter, etc. Professions: weaver, taylor, draper, brick maker, letterpress printer, etc. I have looked up the De Renzy name and found at Leeds (chaplain of the gaol), Reverend George Binks De Renzi, born in Ireland. I have no idea if he is related but would be interested in contacting any of this name or variation, who have Robinson as a surname in their tree. Posted 21 May 2015.
