I have being doing research on my ancestors, the MARKHAM FAMILY for a while
now and have discovered that the family were resident in Wressle, Near
Howden and the surrounding area as Blacksmiths for more than a hundred years
(at least 1770 to 1880's). As they appear to have been in the same area for
such a long time I was wondering if anyone else was researching this family
and we could exchange information.
I have visited the Beverley Archives and noted all that I could find
regarding the MARKHAMS' but finding some difficulty fitting the names into
the correct branches of the family and Beverley is a long way to visit
Any help would be gratefully received
Could SKS with access to the 1851 E Yorks census please look up for me Sarah Staveley RIPPON in Beverley? She should have been about 16 years old (give or take) & unmarried, but possibly living with someone, or living with illegitimate children.....she baptized 2 sons Thomas & Charles on the same day in 1853...She herself was the illegitimate daughter of Hannah RIPPON (who would have been about 39 in 1851) & presumably a Mr. STAVELEY.
If anyone can help, I'd be very grateful....
I'm trying to find out what happened to the family of William Elston Hall
(born Breighton 1851) and his wife Sophie Elizabeth (Clarkson, born Anlaby
1854) and their 8 children. The last I have is the 1881 census when they are
at Mincrod Terr. Holderness Road, Beverley. a failed farmer. None of them
appear in the 1891 or 1901 census documents, so I was wondering if they
emigrated and how to research it.
I have not been following your chat about the Blythe family but just for the
record I have Thomas Cattell marrying Sarah Blythe in Kilnsea in 1767.

Does anyone know if it is possible to go straight to the details of a whole household, without having to go to an individual first. If you know you've got the right person from the index there seems no point in having to pay for the information about them separately from the family, as you get it with the family anyway.
Thank you for the info you have sent on your JOHNSON line. I'm not sure
at this stage if there is any connection with mine.
The first thing I have to do is find the marriage of my Robert JOHNSON
to a Mary?
I have been told by a member of the LINCS list that a Robert
JOHNSON married Mary BLACKSTON at Saint John and Saint Martin,
Yorkshire on 8 Feb 1779.
But another lister has now sent the below:
Hughwallis site,--- for St.Mary & St.Nicholas Beverley--found the
1788-25-Sept.--Mary Blackston-married-Richard Sission
1768--12-March.--Robert Johnson-married--Dorothy Dawson.
So I am now totally confused. All I know for sure is that they were in
Barton Upon Humber LINCS by Nov 1786. Their son Stephen gave his
birthplace as Hull on the 1851 census, born c1784. Maybe that is where I
should be looking for their marriage.
I will get back to you if I find a connection in the future.

I'm back on the list and still researching Thomas Tharratt who married
Elizabeth Flinton in 1833 at St. Mary's, Sculcoates. I would like to find
his birthdate and information about his parents, siblings.
Firstly I have a copy of the census disc for yorkshire 1881, and would be willing to look up anything (not too complicated though!) please mail me us much infor as poss.
Now down to business looking for information on :-
Terence Jospeh Patrick Kaveney and wife Lilian Holder
traced an address to 4 Littles Terrace Gillett Street Hull in around 1905. Have details of 2 children George Leonard Kaveney and James William Kaveney probably more children but none discovered yet!
Essentially want dates of birth or marriage for Terence and Lilian or if ne one has 1891 census may be able to trace, would probably have lived in near surrounding area.
Terence may have been born in Malta in 1959 which means he was nearly 50 when he had James in 1910 so Lilian would probably have been younger although this may just be the wrong road!
Would like to hear anything anyone has!

Thanks to all who replied to be regarding the web site for old hand writing. I have currently been having a problem with my machine so I though that I would just do a big thank you to all the lists. My document will be on-line soon so maybe SKS will be able to decipher it for me.
Firstly, a Seed Warehouse would have all types of seed including
It is quite likely that you will not find Ballamy Square on any maps.Mill
street was one of the worst slum areas in HULL. In such areas unscrupulous
builders erected housing in every available space and I guess it would have
been very difficult to keep up with for mapping purposes. Mill Street was
also an Irish enclave. I don't know if you ancestors had any connections
The Local Historian , JOHN MARKHAM, writes that a hierarchy of tenants and
sub tenants existed. Even beds could have a 24 hour occupancy by being
rented out for portions of a day.
Ballamy Square would probably have been demolished at the beginning of the
20th. century when huge areas of slums were cleared from the town centre,
many of them to make way for the new Ferensway.
Hope that you will find this interesting.

Can anyone please help me find the SYMONS family in HULL. So far I
only have one marriage certificate for ROBERT SYMONS 1924. I am looking for
his father, WILLIAM SYMONS born about 1873, not sure where. He lived in Hull
with his wife (don't know her name either) around 1900, had a son WILLIAM
born about 1898, & ROBERT born 1900. They were OIL MILLERS by trade.
I really would appreciate any information. thanks
What a super lot you all are. Had some wonderful Reponses and many many
photographs sent to me regarding
Staniforth Place in Hull at the turn of the century. I think I have thanked
all in person - if not please accept this as a big thank you to the lists.
"A photographic Ramble Through Time" is coming along nicely.
I've been a subscriber to this list for quite some time, but haven't posted
anything since shortly after I joined, so here's a repost of my Yorkshire
Wood/ Woodsworth family.
My g-g-grandfather Richard Wood was born in 1803 in Sledmere, ERY, third son
of Richard Wood, (~1769 - 1830) and Maria Bolton (~1781 - 1807). I¹m not
sure where either of them were born -- possibly the East Riding, but
possibly the North Riding or elsewhere. Richard sr. and Maria were married
24 Nov 1796 and had five children. She died in Aug 1807 and Richard married
Elizabeth Bradley 29 Nov 1814 and had four more children by her. He died in
1830, and Elizabeth remarried in Feb 1833, to Robert Richardson. All these
events occurred in Sledmere.
Richard jr. left England in 1830 and moved to Canada, possibly via New York.
He settled in Toronto, changed his name to Woodsworth, and became quite well
known as an architect, builder, and lay Methodist minister. To the best of
my knowledge, the rest of the family stayed in England, most of them in the
East Riding. One of the great mysteries of this family is the use of the
name Wood by some of them and Woodsworth by others since the 1830s. I have
found absolutely zero evidence that Woodsworth was used by earlier
Children of Richard Wood and Maria Bolton:
John b Feb 1797, Sledmere; no further information, although I found a
marriage for a John Wood (b. ~ 1819, Wetwang, d. 1896, Sledmere) to Ana
Robinson ( b. 1819 Brigham, d. 1899, Sledmere), who may be his son.
Unfortunately, so far I haven¹t found any proof of a connection.
Ann b. Mar 1799; no further record of her.
William b. Mar 1801, Sledmere, d. Mar 1810, Sledmere.
Richard my g-g-grandfather, b. Mar 1803 Sledmere, d. 23 Jan 1871, Toronto,
Maria b. Jul 1805, Sledmere, d. Jan 1842, Garton on the Wolds. She married
John Hutchinson, son of William and Mary (Train) Hutchinson of Wetwang. They
lived in Garton and Skidby, and had three children; William, Richard, and
Christopher. John died in Jul 1843, also in Garton.
Children of Richard Wood and Elizabeth Bradley:
Thomas b. Nov 1818, Sledmere, d. Dec 1862, Sledmere. His first wife was
Martha Watson (b. Oct 1819), whom he married 21 Aug 1841; I have not found a
death record for her, but he remarried, to Martha Leng (b. 1819), on 14 May
1842. She died Aug 1855, and Thomas married Jane Wharram (b. ~ 1820) 23 Apr
1860. He had six children by Martha Leng; Richard (Aug 1842 - ?), Mary (Jul
1844 Apr 1845) and her twin Elizabeth (Jul 1844 - ?), Maria (Oct 1847 -
?), James (Dec 1849 - ?), and Martha (Jun 1852 - ?). Elizabeth married
Thomas Marshall (b. ~ 1838) of Hutton Ambo, 30 Dec 1865 in Sledmere. I have
not found marriages or death records for any of the other children. Note:
All of them were named Woodsworth in the Parish Register, and Thomas used
Woodsworth as his name when he married Jane Wharram. He died after being
gored by a cow, according to a report in the Driffield Times and General
Advertiser of 03 Jan 1863. Thomas' oldest son, Richard, lived in Rosedale,
NRY, from the 1870s through 1890s, where he worked as a boot maker, and his
younger son, James, appears to have been in Rosedale in the early 1870s.
Both of them used Woodsworth.
Betsy b. Jul 1820, Sledmere; no other records found.
William b. Feb 1822, Sledmere, d. 3 Oct 1895, Sledmere. He married Mary
Awmack (b.1822, Westow d. 11 Dec 1884, Sledmere) 1 Sep 1849 in Leake, and
they had seven children; Tamar (Apr 1850 Feb 1853), Benjamin (Mar 1852 -
?), Sarah (Nov 1853 Jul 1854), Jane (Jun 1855 - ?), Mary (Apr 1858 - ?),
Deborah (Aug 1860 May 1861), and William (Jun 1864 - ?). Jane married
Thomas Clark, of Sledmere, 21 Dec 1872 in Sledmere. Mary may have married a
William Whitfield in late 1879. William is listed as Wood¹ on the baptismal
records for the first four children, but by 1858 he was using Woodsworth.¹
His burial record lists him as Wood.¹
Jane b 9 Dec 1825, Sledmere, d. Jun 1832, Sledmere.
I would be glad to share further information on this family with anyone
who's related to these Woods.

It sounds like a great resource. I'm no expert but would be
willing to try to transcribe not only the births, marriages, etc. but
also all the surnames mentioned if you could scan the pages.
Can anyone help me I have found a birth for a GEORGE WILLIAM HUTCHINSON
in the March quarter 1871 in Howden and a GEORGE HUTCHINSON for the June
Quarter 1871, can anyone find out for me if either the parents names are
JOHN HUTCHINSON and ANN HUTCHINSON nee DRURY. I don't want to get both
to find only one is the right one.
