Skelton-in-Cleveland lookup
« on: Friday 17 September 04 06:34 BST (UK) »
I need any information about Roger Kirk. He is reported on an Irish church record to have been born 1624, Neshag, Skelton, York. I think Neshag is Ness Hagg, which is near Moorsholm in the North Riding. Legend says he was the son of Alphonsus Kirk, son of Thomas Kirk, son of Roger Kirk. Their name might also be spelled Kirke or Kyrke. Any records on any of these people would be appreciated by many Kirk researchers. Roger was married to a woman named Elizabeth. I'd like to know her maiden name and any other info about her too. I don't know where to look. Maybe you do.

If you go to

and click to search

but only type in the boxes that ask for the names of
father being Roger Kirk
and then just put Elizabeth in mothers box

See what happens Click on the first Alphonus that comes up in the Ancestral file.

There are a lot of  names on the file where it says submitters details so maybe you already have this info
