John YATES 1806-1880 from Halifax
« on: Tuesday 15 September 20 01:59 BST (UK) »
Trying to find the birth/baptism and parentage of John YATES from Halifax.

He married Jane HODGSON in Halifax 20 Sep 1829, and had two sons Henry in 1832 and Edward in 1838.

In 1841 the family were in Gibbet Street, Halifax. All born in county. With the family was a Mary YATES. She was listed as 30 but could have up to 35. A possible sister?

In 1842 John and family left Liverpool for New Zealand where John died 28 March 1880 aged 74. NZ death certificates list parents names at that time, but in this case they are indicated as not-known.

Have Jane HODGSON's parents as Henry HODGSON and Mary YATES who married at Halifax in 1807, so there could also be a connection there with John.

Many thanks

Came across this while looking for Yates.

8 April 1833 an appeal from the parish of Thornhill re removal of Henry Hodgson his wife Mary and  their son Samuel from Halifax to Thornhill the order of removal discharged. (paraphrased)

So if you want to go back on the Hodgson side Henry was originally from Thornhill Yorkshire.

Have you seen the original marriage entry for John and Jane? if so who are the witnesses their names may give us additional clues.

Yes I have seen the original.

Witnesses are William Baily (I think) and Thomas Beaver. Thomas Beaver was a witness at quite a few of the marriages so either professional witness or the Parish Clerk.

They do not seem to fit, but you never know.
