Title: Baptism for James Ackroyd/Akeroyd c.1756 - Silkstone/West Bretton
Post by: Emsworthy on Tuesday 18 August 20 15:17 BST (UK)
Hi all,

Yet another one from me...

James Ackroyd married Ann Senior (1756-1781) in 1778 in Silkstone with Stainborough.  They had two known children - Martin (1778) and William (1780).

I have looked for a baptism for James Ackroyd and have failed to turn anything up at the moment.  1756 isn't definite - just along the same lines as his wife.

Martin wasn't a common name and there are others in West Yorkshire, so could there be an uncle or grandfather of that name?  Right now, I have no idea.  Ann's father was called George.

If anyone could help me get further back, I'd be most grateful!

Many thanks,
