George Banks 1778
« on: Thursday 26 April 18 13:20 BST (UK) »
Help needed from Australia. I am looking for the parents of George Banks, 1778-1845.
George married Martha Butterfield 6th April 1801. I believe some of their children were William, Joseph, Abraham, Elizabeth, Martha, and Sarah? Abraham was my 2nd Great Grandfather and was born 1822 in Keighley, Yorkshire. Any help appreciated :)

There do not appear to be many christenings for 'Banks' in Keighley at around 1700-1800. Have you tried looking for any other Banks in the area, born about the same time as George?
There are these two. Nothing definite but possible siblings, cousins or other relatives? Seeing as there are so few of them in Keighley at the time

Christening Date 10 Dec 1792
