Croslande & Hawksworth families and colonial America
« on: Saturday 23 November 19 22:51 GMT (UK) »
Being descended directly from these families I would like to research their role in the establishment of colonial America.

Can anyone suggest a readable book which focuses on either or both of these families? There are plenty of history books dealing with the period but none of them appears to make much more than a passing reference to them and they are pretty solid academic texts.

The focus for both families is south Yorkshire around Almondbury

Perhaps you should put this on the American board?
