Craven family
« on: Sunday 09 June 19 04:08 BST (UK) »
My ancestor Richard Arrand, born 1670 in Kippax married Ann Craven in 1705 in Rothwell, known as The Hague.

Thereís been a family tree website making a claim that this Ann Craven is the daughter of Sir William Craven, who is from noble birth.

Iíve asked the original owner where she got her source, but it seems as though she copied the information from another family tree. However, Iím not convinced, but I donít want to let it lie until Iím certain.

Can anyone help and trace down Ann Cravenís father?

According to the 1812 Peerage of England (V5):
Sir William Craven of Combe-abbey b 1638 had 5 daughters. The youngest Anne b Feb 1884 married William Hodgson. (https://archive.org/details/collinsspeerageo_f05coll/page/456 )

So this Anne does not seem to be the same person as the one who married Richard Arrand

Note: I haven't found any other Annes who were born around that time and who had a Sir William Craven as a father.
