From The Sunday Times ( London, England ), Sunday, August 24, 1823;
pg.1; Issue 45.
Wednesday morning, Mr. THOMPSON , a young gentleman, a pupil, of Mr.
BROOKES , of Blenheim-street, after attending a lecture at the
Anatomical Theatre, went to a room adjoining, and a noise being heard
by some of the family of Mr. BROOKES , they went to the spot, and found
Mr. THOMPSON on the ground in the agonies of death. Bleeding was
occasioned by the rupture of a blood-vessel on the brain. The young
gentleman is related to a highly respectable family in Yorkshire.
It seems that all roads lead to Yorkshire.
Their son William arrived in London; was a policeman.
There are some websites, as well as the PRF that have Jane TINDAL as b 1816.
Her ages in census indicate she was born 1805/6. I would want some really
convincing evidence that she was INCREASING her age by 10 years!
Looks like a bad case of Wishful Linking.

A patent recently obtained to facilitate the conveyance of coals, etc.
is about to be applied on a large scale, it having been determined to
discard the use of horses on the iron rail-way between Middleton and
Leeds, a distance of three miles, and to convey the coals from the
collieries of C. J. BRANDING , Esq., at Middleton, by agency of steam.
I'm sorry you've can't find your Willy. I too have a lost ancestor, named Tommy. Thomas Briggs, a blacksmith, born about 1830. Married 1854 in Sheerness and died 1854 aged 24yrs, in Sheerness. As most BRIGGS seem to come from Yorkshire, I am now spreading out away from Kent, hoping to find him in Yorkshire.
Good luck with your research.

I'm still trying to find out some information on my ancestor Nicholas Kirbyson. He was baptized in Settrington Jan. 1, 1803. His mother was Mary Kirbyson, but his father isn't named in the baptism record. I'm trying to find out who his father was, and what happened to his mother. I found a marriage record of Mary Kirbyson to John Hagues in 1805, but not sure is this is the same person.
I have a lot of information on Nicholas and his wife Anne Dobson, but nothing on his earlier life. Nicholas perhaps had a brother George, but I haven't found out anything to verify this. Does anyone have Kirbyson ancestors or know of this family? I would appreciate hearing from you.
Last record found so far is:-

Disappeared about 1914 they say. Might have been a soldier, but such a
common name. Might have shot through to avoid being a soldier?
Any suggestions as where to look for him appreciated.

Some days ago, as E. OATES , under-gardener to the Archbishop of York,
was attempting to take a hawk's nest, he was so violently attacked by
the old birds as to occasion him to fall from the tree, by which he was
unfortunately killed on the spot.
Eliz. JOHNSON , who was acquitted at the last Assizes of York, for
circulating forged bank-notes and counterfeit half guineas, was fully
recommitted to York Castle last week, on similar charges.
On Monday, a boy of two years old, son to Mr. DARLING , of Sheffield,

From The Leeds Mercury ( Leeds, England ), Saturday, August 31, 1811;
There is a well in the Church-yard at Thornton, about six miles from
Skipton, which is situated considerably below the level of the
burying-ground, and from which it is supposed to inhale many healing
qualities: This well is surrounded by an hexagonal stone building,
bearing the following Demi-Latin Inscription:-
" Quod Publicre Santati benovorlat.
" H. RICHARDSON , Rector,
" Fontem hune, salutiferum et
