Knapton and Way
« on: Friday 12 January 18 20:38 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Are there any descendants of the Way or Knapton family on here?

The Way family may be more difficult but the Knapton went from Bradford to Devon in the 1880s. I know they were there in the 1950s and know at least one line of the Way family are still there although I've lost contact.
