Yorkshire (West Riding) / some helps with Bates of Sowerby Bridge
« on: Friday 27 August 10 17:01 BST (UK)  »

I have a Samuel Bates abt.1763 died 1812 richmond nr. leyburn.  I have had a guess at his father who i think is John Bates abt. 1737 of Sowerby Bridge, and his father Samuel abt.1700 birth place unknown.

I really want to go back as far as possible with this line but really struggling the further back i go. (not many records available)

any information or help would be greatly appreciated.

Samuel Bates abt.1763 sons seem to be Gun makers/smiths however, i do not know if this is the same for Saml.

dont have much info other than what is here and Samuel Bates' family from 1800s onwards.

many thanks

« on: Friday 14 May 10 12:58 BST (UK)  »
Does anyone know if there are any records on passenger coming into the uk before 1878?

I think my relative came in between 1873-1880 but there is no sign of him on the passenger list.

he is Oliver Evans abt 1873 born California (according to uk census).  He was sent home as an infant and we dont know why, is living with his aunt, Ann Evans in 1881 census in Llanguicke, Wales.

Worcestershire Lookup Requests / Tromans/Trowmans of rowly regis?
« on: Friday 23 October 09 12:33 BST (UK)  »
I have found so many Tromans/Trowmans in one area I am having difficulty connecting the dots.  Any help would be appreciated.

I have a Thomas Trowmans abt. 1778 according to 1841 census he is not born in county of worcestershire, however, born in scotland, ireland or foreign parts is ticked on the census.  He is married to Nancy Hackett (not 100% on surname).

Any help with this family will be something, I was hoping to find a connection to other Trowmans in the area, they mostly seem to be Jewish, but cannot connect them as of yet.
