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?
