As it is a while since I posted the names of my ggrandparents and gggrandparents. I thought that I would ask if anyone on the list has a connection.
Priscilla LENG, age 19yrs. daughter of John Leng and Jane (Bell?)
William BROWN, age 21yrs. son of Thomas Brown and ?
July 16th. 1854 in the parish Church of Norton, Malton.
On the 1851census John Leng is now with Elizabeth Leng with children William age 10.Elizabeth age 7yrs. and Mary 1yr.old
Also included is Robert age 20yrs.and Priscilla, her age is shown as 13 yrs.yet 3 years later she is 19yrs. old ??? presumably the children of John and Jane Leng.
Would love to hear from anyone with any information or a connection as the above is all that I know of John-Jane and Elizabeth LENG also Thomas and son William BROWN.
Regards, Audrey, Ontario, Canada.
If you go to www.hullcc.gov.uk you can find the City Archieves information
also the Local History Library. There is also a very good member of the
library staff Gareth Watkins who is their resident Genealogist.
The Guildhall in Hull (the seat of the City Council) has various portraits
of former Aldermen etc up in various rooms around it. You may find there is
one of him there.
Hope this will help you.

My thanks to Hazel, Harry, Richard and others for your guidance on the mis-spelled "Elaton". Thanks to your suggestions, I have now found my Gt.Gt.Grandmother in the 1851 census - born in ELLERTON !! I guess someone just did not know the correct spelling, and wrote it as it sounded.
I am looking for information on a John BANKS, an Alderman of Hull in the mid
1700's. John Banks was the husband of Lydia ATKINSON and they married at
Knottingley 21st Mary 1750, and they had one daughter that I am aware of - Ann
BANKS born 17 July 1758. Lydia died in 1792 and is buried at Knottingley as is
her daughter who died 25 December 1781. There is a memorial tablet in the
church at Knottingly to both ladies, but nothing for John. From records on the
IGI this John BANKS may have been born ca 1724 and christened at Holy Trinity
Kingston upon Hull 19 December 1724, the son of John BANKS.
Would anyone know whether there is a list of Aldermen of Hull kept anywhere
or indeed know anything of this John BANKS please?
I'm an arthritic, one fingured typist, so here ids an abbreviated 1891
John Harwood TATE aged 57 b. Rimswell, M. and his son, George, aged 29, also
M. born Tunstall, ERY living at 25 1/2 (25 and a half) Durham St., Sutton on
Hull (Southcoates) where they were Dock Labs. They had a widow, Maria DAY,
Servant and Alf. JONES a boarder.
The parishes of Welton and Melton are to the east of Hessle and Kirk Ella
which are to the east of Hull.
I do have note of a small family of TATEs in Welwick between 1700 & 1800 if
you ever get back to that date in or near Welwick, ERY
The ELGEY family you quoted are one of mine!
These look like the people you are looking for in
HO107/Piece 2361/Folio 0327r Sculcoates East
CarolineMinshall 4 born Hull
Hannah Minshall 8 born Hull
John Minshall 13 born Manchester LAN
MargaretMinshall 11 born Hull
Mary Minshall 43 born Manchester LAN
Robert Minshall 50 born FLN North Wales
William Minshall 47 born FLN North Wales
They seem to be all on one page and so may be all in
one household. It's impossible to tel from the index.
There don't seem to be any others.
Hope this helps

I am trying to find information about a John Herbert TATE who was born
in Garton, Yorkshire around 1865. I can find no listing on BMD online,
which may mean that the section hasn't been transcribed yet.
He is the son of a Harwood TATE, who was a farmer, according to his
marriage certificate. The only Harwood I can find is listed on the 1881
census is below but I would have thought the family would be near, by
but I can find no entry for them on the 1881 census in UK.
Can SKS help me with where is Welton & Melton? and if they have a
reference for TATE on the 1871 census I would be grateful.

My great-grandfather, Edwin Matthew, was born in the village of Harton in
1848. He married Susannah Elizabeth Brown in the church at
Whitwell-on-the-Hill in March 1877. She bore him three children. He died in
1885 (don't know where).
I'm trying to push back a generation and pinpoint Edwin's parents. I've come
across a William Matthew who was living in Harton at the time of the 1871
census. He married Ann Daniel at Kirby Underdale church on 23 Oct 1834. Does
anyone have any info that might help me determine whether or not William was

I asked in May 2004 if anybody knew of an Elizabeth Appleton, who
was born in Pocklington about 1844. She was my great-grandmother and
married Charles Foster of Harrogate.
I have found a possible birth for Elizabeth Appleton
1843 December Q, Pocklington, XXIII, 79
[FreeBMD index this as E*; it is faint but clear on the LDS film]
It is likely she was the daughter of Robert Appleton of Goodmanham.
There is some possibility that he married twice
1) Elizabeth Appleton Stephenson, 1843 Quarter 3. (died 1853 Q2)
2) Esther Wilde, 1854 Q4, Howden
[Esther gave Holme on Spalding Moor or Tollingham as her birthplace
However I am still unable to find the marriage between Charles Foster
and Elizabeth Appleton.
Before I buy certificates, I would like to confirm she was the girl
On the 1871 census, a cousin Esther Appleton, age 25, born Pocklington,
was visiting. I think this is the Esther, born 1845, Q4.
So I wonder if anyone with the 1851 or 1861 censuses for Pocklington
can find Esther, age 5 or 15 respectively so I can find her parents
and possibly confirm Elizabeth's origins that way.

This is as a follow up to the TV series "Who Do You Think You Are".
There on the day, to my knowledge, will be people from the Hull Register Office and Hull Archives, Gareth Watkins the Hull Libraries genealogist, the EYFHS and the Hornsea & District Heritage Archive ( take along your photos of those happy holidays at Hornsea to add to the Archive)

Many thanks to Chris, Rachel and Sue for their definitions of a Monthly Nurse. I'm still not sure why my GGgrandfather was living with such a person (his wife and son were alive but living else-where at the time). He died in 1887, and on the 1891 census she was listed as a 'Monthly Nurse'. It appears that the enumerator has added 'sick' to her occupation, and also that of another Monthly Nurse in the same house, so may be they looked after sick adults as well as new mums and babes. She was a milliner in 1881, so must have tried a few occupations,
