Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Samuel and Ruth Varley Family History
« on: Wednesday 19 August 20 09:53 BST (UK)  »
Following the suggestion Of John Varley of 1893, I looked carefully at the records and determined he was a very good possibility. So I purchased his birth certificate  and he is the one I was looking for. He was born on Christmas day, so lived less than a week. The youngest of the previous 9, Agnes lived to be 105, so you can never tell how long a life can be.

Igor Strav,
               John is a possibility, but is the mother " Shaw " on the birth record Ruth Shaw?

All 9 of the children were born in the district of Bradford, however, during the 1890's that part of Bradford changed its district to North Bierley, which lasted well into the next century

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Samuel and Ruth Varley Family History
« on: Friday 07 August 20 14:19 BST (UK)  »
Samuel Varley married Ruth Shaw in 1873, and lived their married life in Wilsden. According to the family Bible, between 1873 and 1890, there were 9 children, of which only Reuben had died by the time of 1911 Census. However the original of 1911 census for those still living at home in West View Cottage, Wilsden and signed by Ruth, shows total number of children born as 10, 8 still living and 2 who have died.
Can anybody say for certain if there was a 10th and who this might be
Thank you

Yorkshire (West Riding) / William THORNTON'S wife now COMPLETED
« on: Friday 19 July 19 15:26 BST (UK)  »
   William Thornton was born in Hunslet during quarter 2 of 1849.
In 1871 Census he is living with his mum Sarah and brother David in Swaine Court, Headingley cum Burley, Leeds.
In 1881 Census William is married to Sarah E, and with their sons Arthur and George W, they are running a pub in Leeds
Between 1871 and 1881 I cannot find a marriage for a William Thornton which agrees with his wife's name.
However in 1901 Census George is boarding with his grand father Robert L Tyzack in Leeds. Robert has a daughter Sarah Elizabeth Tyzack but is she the wife of William?
During 1871 and 1881 the only marriage which fits Sarah is to George Morley in 1875. I cannot find a marriage for Sarah Elizabeth Morley which fits.
So was there ever a marriage between William and Sarah and if so what became of her marriage to George Morley?
Any help would be appreciated

         Thank you for your reply to my old query re James Thornton. The information you provided is interesting. On which line of the family are you descended? I presume you are interested in your family history and if you would like to compare notes, please send me a private message with your email address and we see where it takes us.

Robert Stephen Wright was born in 1868, being registered in Northallerton. He married his first wife, Emma Jane Scanlon, whilst serving in the army in India in 1894. They had the following children:
Robert Stephen, Emily, George William, Olive May, Albert Edward, John Arthur, Mary Alice and Norman.
After a tour of Ireland, in the early 20th century, the family settled in Bradford, where Emma died shortly after the birth of Norman. In 1911 census, the family were living at 38, King Street. At number 44, King Street, at the same time were living my Great Grandmother, Blanche, with my Grandfather, John William, my Great Grandfather, James having died in 1910. A friendship obviously took place because in 1915, Blanche married Robert Stephen, but it only lasted a short time because Blanche died in 1916. When Robert Stephen junior married Mabel Martin in 1919, my Grandfather was a witness, signing the marriage certificate.
It would be a pleasure to meet existing members of Wright family and share my findings with them.
Thank you
