Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / Help/advice needed to find Baptism c1893
« on: Sunday 22 October 06 19:45 BST (UK)  »
I have a problem with my GGrandfather (well, I have a few, but one at a time! lol)

I have his birth cert for 22 Apr 1893. He was born at Listing Lane, Littletown in Liversedge (Spen Valley, near Cleckheaton).

I have his marriage in 1919, in Cleckheaton.
He died in 1953.

His name on his birth cert is Robert Crawshaw, son of Emma Ann Siddle (nee Haigh) and Joseph Crawshaw.
On his marriage and death, he appears as Siddle.

I have searched through countless churches and have found some of his siblings, namely Alonzo in 1889 and Olive in 1892. They were both baptised at Liversedge Parish Church 2 years after they were born. I cannot find any of the other children:

Clara Elizabeth Haigh, born 1879 Dewsbury
Tedbor Siddle, born 1882 Heckmondwike
Jane Ann Siddle, born 1885 Liversedge
Amanda Crawshaw, born 1891 Liversedge
Ada Crawshaw, born 1896 Liversedge
Norah Crawshaw, born 1898 Gomersal

From Listing Lane, the family moved to Walker Street which I believe was also in the Littletown area.

I've looked at churches in Liversedge, Cleckheaton, Bradford, Heckmondwike and Dewsbury but I have not found anything.

Can anyone suggest what else I can do to find the others, or if there would be another explanation of why they are missing?

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Areas of Leeds?
« on: Thursday 20 April 06 23:24 BST (UK)  »
I have an ancestor who was from Leeds. On two censuses, she claims to have been born in Wortley. In the others, it just says Leeds.

Now, onto my query...

In 1841, I have found a person of the same name, living in Holbeck, which is where her first child was born in 1841.

I have found her baptism on the IGI, but it comes under Rothwell.

Is it the same person, or shall I go back to the drawing board?

(I don't have her marriage cert yet)

The Common Room / Odd First Name
« on: Saturday 11 February 06 00:04 GMT (UK)  »
One of my relation was named Tedbor. This was his first name. It appears on his birth cert, on all the censuses and on his death cert. I know it is the right name,  but where does it come from?

I know there are only a few with this name, so I'm fasinated by it.

Derbyshire Lookup Requests / Hathersage Parish Records - Lilleman
« on: Friday 03 February 06 18:56 GMT (UK)  »

Joseph Lilleman married a Nancy/Ann parents (maybe!) of
James Lilleman, born c1799
Catherine Lilleman, born c1802
Joseph Lilleman, born 1804
Joanna Lilleman, born c1809
Susannah Lilleman, born c1813

Derbyshire Lookup Requests / 1841 Hathersage lookup please - Lilleman
« on: Monday 30 January 06 23:29 GMT (UK)  »
Could anyone please let me know where Joseph Lilleman, b1826 is living in 1841 and who he is living with?

I'm trying to work out if he is a relation, but I keep getting stuck.  In 1851, he is just married with a baby. His occupation is Needle Finisher.

His father is James Lilleman. His mother is Elizabeth, b1798.
They also had
Joanna, 1827
Mary Ann, 1830
Elizabeth, 1832
John, 1834
George, 1837

Many thanks :)

Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / Cleckheaton baptisms - Gomersall
« on: Wednesday 09 November 05 16:06 GMT (UK)  »
Could anyone please help me locate the baptisms of children born to Benjamin Gomersall (spelling varies). They would be born between 1800 and 1830. I'm trying to work out which ones belong to my Benjamin, but keep happening across extra names.

If anyone can help me with this, I'd be eternally grateful.

In particular, I'm looking for Elizabeth c1811 - mother Betty I think
and Hannah c1827, either daughter of this Elizabeth or Benjamin.

I have checked the IGI and can't find these two.

Midlothian / Marriage and births in Leith
« on: Thursday 20 October 05 10:32 BST (UK)  »
I need some help tracking down a marriage (handfasting maybe?) and a couple of births.

Richard and Marian (Marion/Miriam) Liversedge had two children in Scotland.

In 1851, Richard is in England.

c1853, Thomas is born in Scotland
c1855, Elizabeth is born in Scotland

In 1861, Richard, Marion and the kids are back in England, with more children born in England from c1856 onwards.

Marion is Scottish, but never mentions where she is from. Neither does Elizabeth. On 3 censuses, Thomas puts his place of birth as Leith.

I have checked ScotlandsPeople till I'm blue in the face. Can anyone access (or tell me where I can) records for the various churched in Leith that aren't on ScotlandsPeople.
