I will also check the Hollym registers for you. Some parts of Holmpton are
in the Hollym parish. Samuel's wife Mary was from Hollym. It doesn't help
either that both churches were dedicated, along with the one in Withernsea,
to St Nicholas. The Hollym and Withernsea records are quite muddled because

Subject: [ENG-EAST-YORKS] RICHARDSON families of Holmpton in the late 1700s
A plea to anyone on the East Yorkshire list who may have connections to any
RICHARDSON family resident in Holmpton or surrounding villages in the late
1700s and 1800s.
Using mainly internet resources (as I live in Sydney, Australia), I have
been trying to connect the varying RICHARDSON families in order to find the
parents of my ancestor Peter RICHARDSON.
My Peter RICHARDSON married Isabella Banks FAGG in Drypool on 9 Jan 1811. He
was born in Holmpton approximately 1779. He died on 22 Jan 1856 in

Some researchers seem to have assumed this is "my" Peter RICHARDSON, but I
can find no proof for this
Samuel RICHARDSON and Mary had 10 children that I can find.
If I can find fellow RICHARDSON researchers who have been able to
successfully trace their family in Holmpton, this may then help me to
isolate my line.
The sources of my research have been mainly
Ancestry (census records and other peoples research) Familysearch Free BDM
site Several publications of Monumental Inscriptions from the region
Holmpton marriages 1739-1837 CD - A history of Withernsea and other parishes
in South Holderness A wonderful book - The People along the Sand, The Spurn
Peninsular & Kilnsea, A History 1800-2000.
My Peter RICHARDSON became a farmer in Kilnsea.
