Mail
Help please! I am trying to find any information at all about my Great Grandmother Mary Ann (Polly) Littlewood. She lived in the Almshouses at Dewsbury. She had 2 children, my Grandmother, born about 1910 ish, who I think was christened Fanny, but changed her name to Geraldine. I know Geraldine had a brother, but don’t even know his name. Geraldine married Ernest Mail, who I believe came from Huddersfield, he was certainly a proud Yorkshireman. They had a son Gerald, my father, born c.1927. He went to Almondbury Grammar School (now King James’ School), and trained as a pharmacist, moving to London. I remember a Great Uncle Gilbert Yates being mentioned when I was a child, who was said to be a Don at Cambridge. I have tried really hard to find information in the birth, marriage and death internet records and a genealogy site, about all of them but have drawn complete blanks. I have no documents or accurate dates for any of them and know so little about them. I would be very grateful indeed for any information at all.

Mason
I am trying to find information about my grandfather, Harry Mason, who I believe was born in Kirkby Lonsdale and later moved to Pannal near Harrogate. He was in the First World War and when he came out he became the village blacksmith in Follifoot, opposite the Radcliffe Arms. The smithy later became a garage. At one time the forge air bellows used to be on display in the entrance to the pub.

My grandfather’s name was Harry Mason and his wife was Annie mason (née Tune). I am trying to formulate a family tree so can someone help please.

Metcalf/Metcalfe
I am looking for information on George Metcalfe, who was born 1775, Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. He immigrated July 12, 1834 to Underhill, Chittenden, Vermont, United States with his wife and younger children. He died May 23, 1863 in Underhill, Vermont, United States. He married Cecily Abbott or Thompson (there is many different name variations on this name). She was born August 29, 1772 in Kirklington, North Yorkshire, England and died May 12, 1855 in Underhill, Vermont, United States. They got married March 11, 1800 in Ripon, North Yorkshire, England. There were 2 known witness to this marriage, William Thompson (Cecily’s father) and John Metcalfe (relationship unknown, could be father, but could be a brother, uncle, cousin, etc.). Their 3 youngest sons immigrated with them to the United States, while their oldest daughter stayed in England. Her name was Jane Ellen Metcalf, born 1801 in Ripon, North Yorkshire, England, and died March 6, 1875 in Dishforth, North Yorkshire, England. She married William H. Burnett on July 16, 1820 in Ripon. He was born 1796 in Ripon and passed away August 22, 1889 in Dishforth, England.

I’ve worked with the Metcalfe Society, and we know that George was married with the last name Metcalfe but died Metcalf. We believe the ‘e’ was lost during immigration, but beyond a Marriage Certificate, Immigration Record and a grave stone, no other information is for sure. The birth year is an estimation based of age at death. If anybody has more known information of his parents and life in England, please send me an e-mail.

Metcalfe/Metcalf
I am looking for a Yorkshire connection for my Thomas Metcalf. He was born in Yorkshire (I don’t know which town), on 16 May 1779. He immigrated to America in May 1809, settling in Rockland, Brandywine Hundred, New Castle Co., Delaware. Thomas became a naturalized USA citizen on 3 June 1815 in Wilmington, Delaware, USA. He married Mary Zebley of Rockland, Delaware and died circa November 1862 in Rockland.
After arriving in America, Thomas worked for a time in a cotton mill as a weaver and spinner. He also worked on a family farm in Rockland. One assumption is that Thomas learned his trade in Yorkshire and was recruited to work in one of the cotton mills along the Brandywine River near Wilmington, Delaware.
I’d greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who believes they may have some connection to my great-ancestor or can direct me to possible resources.

I am looking for information on George Metcalfe of Worton, Bainbridge, Leyburn. I know that he married Nancy Kearton in 1791 but I know little more about her family (i.e. parents or birthplace). From a search of the parish records I believe George was born in 1759 and that he was the son of James Metcalfe of Worton. George and Nancy definitiley had children called George (b. 1796), John (b. 1803) and Richard (b. 1805) and may also have had the following children: James (b. 1791), William (b. 1793), Betty (b. 1798), Mary (b. 1801) and Matthew (b. 1810).
I would love to find out more about this family especially details on George’s parents. Failing that anyone who is researching their children is welcome to contact me and I will be happy to share notes.

My great grand parents used to run the chip shop in Ingleton, my grandad Edward the only child (eddie) I think sold it 79/80. I can still remember the lovely pictures etc, he also told me about a kind lady (relative) who ran a chip shop in Liverpool. I always wondered if the fish shop was in the family prior to this as the house and bedrooms ran across the top of the bank etc next door, what naughty things children get up to with two sets of stairs! I went back several years ago and the orchards etc have all gone, that I remember playing in. I remember my Nan telling me about taking her children to meet Eddie’s grandmother, a frightening figure for her…. dressed in black with a starched white cap on sat as straight as a rod !would she be Jack or Flos mother?? Although Eddie married a girl from Birkenhead, Norah Perry, their son John, visited Ingleton as much as he could and thought of it as “home” and married a girl from the Leek family although she went on later to be called Taylor, from nearby Bentham. We still have family in both villages but from my mothers Leek/Taylor side. I know of no other family, for example did Jack and Flo have siblings and was Alice ? the lady who ran the fish shop in Liverpool, Jacks sister?

I would like to trace decendents of John Robinson b 1826 in Baldersby, Yorkshire and/or his wife Elizabeth nee Myers born 1825 in Skipton, Yorkshire. They lived most of their married life in Romanby, near Northallerton, Yorkshire. John was probably illiterate as he signed his son William’s (my g grandfather’s) birth cert with ‘his mark’. He was an agricultural labour, later an engine driver.
