Yorkshire (West Riding) / Huddersfield birth
« on: Tuesday 15 July 08 13:26 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone,

I'm trying to find the birth of my gran, Edith Rusby. She was born 13/Oct/1886 in Huddersfield we think.
Her mother was Ellen Rusby born in Thorne 1869, there is a marriage for Ellen in the May quar. 1886 to George Scholes. Which you would think meant they left the marriage a little late but on the 1901 census it has as Edith's step-father so either George wasn't her father or didn't admit to it. :-\

My mum did say that there were uncles and an aunt on her mother's side but didn't know if they were younger or older, their names were Thomas, Arthur, Joseph and Ada.

I'm going to have to send for Edith's birth certificate  I suppose and Ellens as well to get back another generation.
I think you should get a discoult on certificates after the first 20 or so. :)

All the best, Anne

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Crossland

I wonder if anyone has any ideas to my problem

My father who died a few years ago now only every said he was born in Yorkshire, he could remember the place name because he was too young at the time. :)
He was born on 14th. Feb. 1925. His name was John Thomas Crossland. His fathers name was John Richard and I only know that because it's on my parent's wedding certificate. I know he had a younger sister (poss. Mary) who died about age 11 while in hospital for an operation on her leg.

Any help would be great.

All the best, Anne.

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Inn keepers
« on: Tuesday 08 July 08 16:51 BST (UK)  »
Would anyone know if or where I could get a list of inn keepers/landlords from?
I have Joseph Anelay inn keeper at Balne, Yorkshire on the 1881 census.
It would be interesting to know which pub and if it's still there.

All the best, Anne.

I am trying to fine out about my gran.
She was Edith Rusby Scholes born 31st Oct. 1886 at Thorne.
Dau. of George Scholes and Eliza?
She married my granddad Isaac Coy on 22nd. April at Thorne Parish Church. At this time she was living at Ellison Street, Thorne.
I think her father may have been born at Hatfield Woodhouse.

Thats all I know about her before her marriage so if anyone could fill in any japs that would be great.
