My family of interest at Sigglesthorne is James PICKWELL, born at Seaton,
and his wife Elizabeth. Four of their children were christened at
Sigglesthorne - John, 1819, note in the margin of the parish record
"Baptised before at High House"; Mary, 1822; Sarah, 1825; and Isabella,
1828. James and Elizabeth emigrated to Canada sometime after the birth of
Isabella. They appear in assessment rolls in Ontario in 1832 - James, his
wife, and four children. Mary had just died in May. One child, Elizabeth
was born in 1830, probably in Canada. James, the last child was born after
the assessment rolls were completed.
Isabella married David HARDY in 1846 in Canada. She died in 1861. David
and his family were from Well, N.Yorkshire. They emigrated in 1843.

Some one made mention today of Sigglesthorne which makes me wonder if
anyone on this List has connections with the POSKITT or HARDY families
from this area.
