i know that my great great grandmother, janet foster (nee kennedy?) was born in Sculcoates around 1824 and her husband George Foster, a pork butcher, was born around 1816 in Hull,  are there any more Kennedy's in the area at that time? or anyone tracing kennedy's?   could that be the correct name?

hello, new to this site, its been fascinating as i have discovered that my ancestors were pork butchers, in Hull, in 1881.  Wittmann.  now I am pretty sure I know where they come from and why Matilda Wittmann's sister, Rose Steinbach, my great grandmother, might have ended up in Otley, living next door to a pork butcher, but married to an Otley lad.  I guess its the pork butcher link!   she might have come over to stay with her sister? and they knew ppork butchers, friends in otley?
she then married into the Foster family, pork butchers in Hull when her first husband died.  David Myers in Otley.

my ancestors, wittmann, pork butchers in Hull in 1881, had a child in 1875 in Barrow.   maybe they went there first?   do you think this is a possibility?

I have just found this web site after trying to dig deeper.  my great grandmother was a rose steinbach, sister to Matilda Wittman, married to George Wittman, pork butchers in Hull, who came over from Wurttemberg.  I wondered why she had first married and lived in Otley, and i think the link may have been with the Weegmann's, still pork butchers in otley!   maybe wht Wittmann's knew the Weegmanns, anyway, i wont go on, just interested to answer this thread.
