Before sending me your brief details (names, dates, places), use a map to check that our families were in roughly the same geographical area.  Do not send attachments before checking with me.  To find my email address, follow the links to my family trees.

Jonathan AGAR of Farndale YKS ENG (son of George and Alice AGAR) married Mary CLARK at Lastingham in 1771.  Jonathan and Mary are buried in St. Aidan's churchyard, Gillamoor, Yorkshire.  A headstone reads 'In memory of Mary AGAR, wife of Jonathan AGAR, died 27 Jan 1794 aged 47'.  Children of Jonathan and Mary include Ruth AGAR (b. 14 Feb 1782, married William MERCER) and Rebecca AGAR (b. 7 Dec 1786, married Benjamin PEACOCK).


Catherine ('Kitty') ASHTON of Kirby Misperton, Yorkshire ENG, married Peter MATTHEW or MATHEW (of Crambe, YKS ENG) in 1803.  Census records imply that she was born c1777 at Swinton YKS.  Was she related to James ASHTON and Thomas ASHTON who witnessed marriages at Kirby Misperton 1804-1807?  Would like to hear from anyone researching ASHTON of Swinton or Kirby Misperton.

Researching forebears and descendants of Mary BIRKS who married Edward BARBER at Bolton upon Dearne YKS ENG, in 1764.  Was Mary a daughter of John BIRKS (carpenter) and his wife Mary?

Seeking descendants of John Hodder BUSSELL and his wife Anne Elizabeth Giblett WEBSTER.  Known issue:  Annie Elizabeth, James Webster (died young), Una Spencer (mar. Cyril TURNER), Mary Constance ('Connie').  Children's births registered in Lewisham and Bermondsey districts, Surrey ENG, but family later lived Lee KEN ENG.


Robert BUTLER mar. 1856 West Maitland NSW AUS.  Certificate says he was born Liverpool ENG c1816 (date may be wrong).  His father (name not given) was probably a shoemaker.  Robert's mother's maiden name is given as Isabella Dobson BROWN.  Would like to hear from anyone with information about a BUTLER who married an Isabella Dobson BROWN, or BUTLER family of Liverpool, Lancashire ENG c1810-1820.


John CAMPBELL (of Fracadale, Mull) and his wife Flora CAMPBELL (of Aros, Mull) had known issue Archibald and Duncan.  Duncan CAMPBELL (tacksman of Isle of Tiree, Argyllshire SCT) married his cousin Helen(a) or Ellen CAMPBELL (dau. of Archibald CAMPBELL and Ann McCALL/McCOLL) at Tiree in 1810.  Ellen and the children emigrated to Sydney NSW Australia on the 'British King' arriving 1839.  Sons were pioneers of Gippsland VIC.  Seeking death details for Duncan (d. SCT c1834-1838) and Helen/Ellen (? died Australia), and information about Duncan's brother Archibald and any other siblings.


Seeking descendants of Ellen HUDSON who married James CAPSTICKS in 1894 and had children Norman and Elsie CAPSTICKS.  May have lived in Stockton-on-Tees and/or Sheffield areas.

William CORDUEX mar. Mary ('Polly') HUDSON at Crambe, North Yorkshire, in 1873.  Their son Herbert CORDUEX moved to Old Malton YKS (20th century).  His two daughters had Green Farm, Barton-le-Willows (which previously belonged to HUDSONs).


Samuel DERBYSHIRE married Christiana HUDSON at Crambe, North Yorkshire, in 1859.  In 1881 they were living in Bedford, England.  Children included John, Christiana, Charles Frederick, Sarah, George Edwin and Victoria May.  Victoria May (or May Victoria) DERBYSHIRE married Charles Edward JAMES.


Richard GIBLETT (b. c1751, Frome, Somerset, ENG) married Sarah SHEPPARD or SHEPHERD (of Frome) in 1783.  One of their forebears may have been a Miss BECK.  Richard (tanner / currier) died 1829, and his wife Sarah in 1851 or 1852.  Known children of Richard and Sarah GIBLETT: Ann (d. 1787), John (woollen cloth manufacturer of Frome, issue Henrietta and Mary);  SamuelThomas (mar.

Catherine HARLEY (of Battersea, aged about 21) married James PORTER (glassmaker or spectacle maker) Nov 1766.  Thought to have lived in the area around Lambeth, Surrey, ENG.  Their daughter Elizabeth Harley PORTER is probably the Elizabeth PORTER who married William WEBSTER c1794.  Catherine's mother Elizabeth HARLEY remarried (to a HAYTHORNE).


Rev. David HAZLEWOOD (widower) mar. Sarah WEBSTER at Sydney NSW AUS in June 1851.  David and Sarah were in Fiji (David was a missionary) until 1853.  They settled at Maitland NSW AUS.  Sarah died 1903.
