I'm looking for a william demaine born 1679 in pateley bridge
And a warm welcome to Rootschat from me.  :)

Could you let us know where the information about the birthplace and year comes from?  (Is it a transcript, an online tree, a deduction based on other sources?)

As arthurk says, there are several Demaines (with spelling variants) in the Skipton area (based on transcriptions on FreeREG) around the mid 1600s, but I haven't spotted a baptism for William c1679 yet - although not all parish registers have been transcribed.

Depending on when the children were baptised, there is a possible marriage (on FreeREG)  27 Sep 1715 Fewston (which is near Harrogate, about 10 miles from Pately Bridge) - William DEMAYNE and Margat BUTTERY.  (This might be the same person as William DUMAINE, son of John, baptised 19 Nov 1693 in Fewston).

No definitive solutions yet, but Rootschatters are on the case!

(p.s. - if you could cite sources for your information it would be very helpful - as you have traced the line back well over 300 years you probably already know that parish registers are far more reliable than some online trees!)


I've seen it on other people's trees, my auntie has also seen it. She's actually on ancestry.com so she can widen her search much more than me.

The problem with online trees is that they don't all quote their sources and they aren't always accurate.  I would be very wary of trusting trees which don't give provable sources.

I do recommend that you ensure that all entries on your tree are provable - either by images of original documents (such as Parish Registers, BMD records and censuses) or by reference to reliable transcripts of original sources (for England I use FreeREG, FreeBMD and the GRO website).  Many images are downloadable from FamilySearch and various paysites.

It might be best to work back from an ancestor who you have proved from original documents or transcripts - it does take time, but you will know you are correct.  Rootschatters are great at helping.
Some years ago I compared my research against three online trees and found:
One ancestor born twice, seventy years apart.
An ancestor who married her husband ten years after he died.
Two sisters who married the same man and had the same children.

Calverley Lad's appearance has reminded me that there's a good chunk of Nidderdale information on the Calverley.info site (also free). There's not a lot on 17th century Demaines, but the more recent information there may help to confirm what you've found in online trees.

The following should go straight to the Nidderdale section - once there, I often find the Database the easiest route to finding things.

(I also find Wharfegen an excellent resource.)

Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

The Wharfegen shows the much older records for Nidderdale than Calverley.

Thanks, Brian - I have a lot of interests around Kildwick, where Wharfegen is strong, and in Calverley, but not many around Nidderdale, so I hadn't ever compared their coverage there.
