We did have some communication last year, but to refresh your memory, I have
two connections to the DUNNING family.
William Benjamin DUNNING who m Wilfreda Mary Beatson BURNHAM in Ilkley in
Robert DUNNING who m Margaretta Jane FERGUSSON in Walkington in 1871
I am not able to shed any light as to the origins of Robert DUNNING, but am
happy to share what I know of these descendants of the above.

I have just joined and am interested in the Dunnings of the East Yorks
villages - so far all have been descendants of Robert Dunning of Bishop
Burton C 1680, but I am still tryingot trace wehre he came from.
Also the Cobb family of Londesborough and the Leakes of Sancton.
I noticed a thread from early 2006 about Benjamin Cobb of Lund. My
Londesborough line begin with a Benjamin C 1700, and its not clear where
he came from. Could it be Lund?
