Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: some helps with Bates of Sowerby Bridge
« on: Monday 30 August 10 20:37 BST (UK)  »
Hi Sandymc

thanks loads for your reply, I thought noone would.

It is quite a hard one as its quite a popular name, and records are not brilliant before 1800.

I am not sure about your John and Samuel, I do not think they are from Leicester its 150 miles from Sowerby bridge.  I think the Bates are a Yorkshire family.

I did find a John Bates abt 1735 Sowerby, married Sarah unknown abt 1760 which I think would tally with Sam born 1763.

I think i have to accept this is a dead end for now, I cannot make it to Yorkshire as i live in South West Wales and its a 4-6 hour drive.

thanks again for the help

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

Europe / Bettembos history?
« on: Tuesday 24 August 10 00:19 BST (UK)  »

I am trying to find the history or origins of the town of Bettembos (80590) Somme or the name Bettembos.

As I have an ancestor Isaac De Bettembos abt.1635 who I presume by the name Isaac of Bettembos was from the town.

I have found loads on the area size and population etc. but nothing of the actual history.

any help is greatly appreciated

many thanks
