I cannot attach a photograph to a PM but can attach one to a posting. This is the photograph of Joseph Holmes, Mary Teall, Horatio Thomas Holmes etc taken behind The Barrel at Walkington. Horatio Thomas is my great grandfather and went on to be the publican at the Moulders Arms and the Dog and Duck in Beverley.

Glad you like it - I wondered about the man in the bushes too !
I have sent a Personal Message and would be interested in any info you have about this branch of the Holmes family.

Hello, I too have a link to Francis & Ann Holmes of Beverly, England.. settling in Wethersfield, Conn. USA in 1648  ... John son of Francis born in England came to Stamford in 1660.. He was married to a Rachel Waterbury in England prior to coming to the US.  They had a son David in 1668 and I am a direct descendant.  I would love to know more about the family.
Cheers,
Len

Hi I am related to Horatio Thomas Holmes, he was my Grandma's Brother. My Grandma was Ida May Holmes. I live in Beverley and have often been in The Barrel Pub in Walkington. I have never seen that photo before.
Holmes, Radley,

Hi Bagpuss,
I am descended from Horatio Thomas Holmes ( b 1862 Nafferton d 1940 Beverley ) he was my grandfather Joseph Holmes' ( b 1888 in Beverley ) father.
I know from bitter experience i.e. following the wrong line, that there are two Horatio Thomas in the family.'My' Horatio Thomas was the publican at the Moulders' Arms and the Dog and Duck ( not the current building) in Beverley.
My grandfather, Joseph, trained as a farrier and won prizes at the Yorkshire show - I still have the impressive certificates.
He moved to Castleford after marrying my grandmother Evelyn Holmes and they had 5 children of whom my mother was one. I have managed to trace Horatio Thomas' line back to the late C18 and wish you well with your research

Hi JCam
Thanks for your reply. From what I know from my family and my research so far. Your Horatio Thomas Holmes is my Grandma's brother. My Grandma Ida May Holmes married my Grandfather Leonard Radley who was also from Beverley. They had one daughter Jean.
Holmes, Radley,

Hi Bagpuss,
I think the dates may be out- 'my' Horatio Thomas was born in 1862 at Nafferton and married Sarah Clarkson b 1862 probably Sculcotes. His parents were Joseph Holmes born 1834 North Cave and Mary Elizabeth Teall born 1839 in Lund. Both Joseph and Mary Elizabeth are on The Barrel photo which I posted earlier.
You said in your post on the George Holmes Blacksmith line that 'your' Horatio Thomas was born in 1886 which means that 'my' Horatio was possibly 'your' Horatio's and your Grandma Ida's uncle. My Grandfather Joseph Thomas was born in 1888 so would possibly have been your Grandma's cousin.
I must admit that my main interest in Family History are the stories which come down the family. One interesting one I was told about the Holmes family in Beverley is that there was a family charity ( probably of the 'loaf of bread and a new petticoat to 12 deserving spinsters variety! ) and a commemorative window in the Minster. I haven't tracked that one down as yet - have you ever heard anything about it ? I would be really interested if you have any information about it.
