Hi Superwhite.   Welcome to rootschat.  If you can give a few names and dates that will help.   Can you quote a census record?

Hi superwhite

Welcome from me too  :)

I have Grahams from East Witton in Wensleydale, maybe some connection, looking forward to seeing which names dates and places you're looking for

If you click on the 'surname interests' tab at the foot of the page, you'll be able to see who is also researching Grahams

Kind regards,
Barbara

Hi Andrea and Barbara

Thanks for your replies!

Very new to this site, so bear with me!

The Grahams are my wife's father side of the family.

Some names/dob etc for you:
1)  WILLIAM GRAHAM b.1864 in ASKRIGG, son of
JAMES GRAHAM. b. 1837 in THWAITE. (JAMES was married to MAGGIE ANN MASON, b. 1870 Muker)

WILLIAM had two brothers: CHERRY GRAHAM (b. 1869 ASKRIGG)  and JOHN GRAHAM (b. 1871 ASKRIGG AREA)

JAMES was married to MARY KEARTON (b. THWAITE 1837)

I have tree available on Genes Reunited, but many loose ends to tie up!

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Regards

Hi Phil,

Sorry, have had a look, but those names don't seem to tie in to my tree, my earliest Grahams were from East Witton and then Grewelthorpe, Yorkshire.  One went to Wakefield, but none in Burnley.

What exactly are you wanting to know about your Grahams, and what do you already know, do you need census or parish register look-ups etc for any of them?

Hi Barbara

From memory, I have Grahams going back to 1760 (I think!!).  It seems all the male generations seemed to share the same names, apart from a few exceptions (William, John, James etc), and I've largely managed to sort them and their subsequent families out by various census returns, IGI returns etc.

However, there were many sisters - if they survived and eventually married, they are much more difficult to find, obviously!

I will go back to my tree and see if I can pick out any particular candidates!

Regards

Phil Haley

Superwhite:

It was William Graham who married Maggie Ann Mason at Burnley June qtr 1890.

The christian name Cherry comes from the Kearton family line.

As you say, James Graham married Mary Kearton Sept qtr 1859.

Mary's father was Cherry Kearton.

Cherry Kearton's mother was Agnes Cherry.


If you need more specific information then please let me know.
My Graham information goes back to Jeffrey Graham c 1730 of Carperby who married Alice Crookey May 3rd 1757 at Aysgarth.
Percival, Hird, Heseltine, Wilson,  Horn(e), Thwaite, Storey, Iveson, Metcalfe, Dinsdale and Sunter and the farms and families of Bishopdale.

Many thanks for that info - I also go back as far as Jeffrey Graham at Carperby, although I know very little about him.
