Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: Velvet mills and the Armitage family
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 21:36 GMT (UK)  »
This is a very old thread but might be worth a post to see if there's any life left in it.

My 6gGrandparents were John North and Love Armitage so there is at least one North/Armitage connection. They were married in 1724(April 2nd Huddersfield St Peter) There seems to be some variation in what is regarded as a true genealogy for the Armitages. Does anybody have a definitive version? I don't know anything about the Norths.

The Armitages or Armytages were a distinguished family and several were High Sheriffs of Yorkshire at various times and their roots are stated as being connected to the Houses of Stewart/Stuart, Plantagenet and Saxe-Coburg Gotha. I am particularly interested in the Stewart line at the moment because I have Stewarts in my lineage and DNA consistently links me with people who have demonstrable royal Stewart ancestry. Any info on the connection between Armytage and Stewart would be appreciated.

Thanks for the reply.

I've worked out what the North connection is.

It seems these Armitages are quite a significant family. Most references seem to relate to later generations at High Royd and Milnsbridge so I'm not entirely sure where my John Armitage at Longwood  fits in at the moment.

Paintings of Milnsbridge show it to be a very impressive house and it's quite sad to see what it has become today.

I've just discovered that John is, I think, my6gGrandfather. His DoB is given as 1672 Longwood House, Huddersfield but I can't find much about the house online. Can anybody help with details of him, his lineage and the house itself.

I'm interested in the inter-relation of Armitage and North families. What's the connection between Armitage and Bolling Hall?

Definitely adds a new dimension to the Shackleton/Shakelton/Shutt side of things.

Still a lack of info on William

I believe that William was the son of William Stewart(1800, Bishop Auckland) and Elizabeth Mason(1805, Woodlands, Durham)

He in his turn was the son of John Stewart/Stuart(1738, Selkirk) and Patience Brown.
John had a twin brother , James.

Their parents were, I think, James Stewart(1710/12ish, Selkirk) and Isobel Dickson.

John 1738 made the move from Selkirk to Bp. Auckland

It would be good to try and get more evidence than I have to make this all hang together better. DNA and the occurrence of certain surnames suggests this is correct but it's a little tenuous.

Hi Wolfie,

Thanks, you have been busy. It will take a while for me to work through all that and it's interesting to see how things may have evolved.

Still no absolute certainty on William's origins though. One thing that has appeared, which makes me think we're working in the right direction, is the Musgrave surname. I hadn't got round to researching that yet but it appears several times in my DNA matches so for it to turn up serendipitously is useful.

Yes, it is an unusual surname, which ought to help, and I know she was from Lancashire. The name is accurate from my gGrandmothers BCert and census records. First child 1850

It's the Stewart side I'm trying to pin down. Assumptions have been made about William's parentage which lead back to Selkirk, Selkirkshire via a couple of generations in Bishop Auckland, Durham. Circumstantially, based on surname and geography, these may well be correct but it would really consolidate things if a marriage record could be found. An acquaintance who is a very competent professional genealogist is struggling with this so let's see if Rootschat can beat the pros!! ;)

Surname spelling varies. Shackleton, Shakelton and Shakleton all appear at times and there is the usual Stuart/Stewart/Stewert/Steward/Steuart situation

This one one has me and others stumped.

Can anyone enlighten me as to the details of this marriage?

Probably Auckland St Helens between 1845 - 1850( but not absolutely certain). I'm particularly interested in Williams parentage.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that.

I have my raw DNA profile as text file. There are thousands of lines relating to Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms i.e nucleotide pairs at each location on each chromosome. I have pasted in the format below:

rsid               chromosome    position     allele 1    allele2

rs190214723     1                 693625 T   T
rs3131972         1                 752721 G   G

I understand most of this except the rsid (Reference SNP cluster ID) number. Certain genes are specific to Royal Stewart ancestry S781 being an example.

How does that number relate to the rsid? Somehow I feel it is unlikely that simply searching the text file for the S781 sequence in the rsid is the way forward. Incidentally, I did that and got 780 hits.

Is the rsid simply a resource locator to allow access to further information.
