I have traced my Family tree back to Settrington in East Yorkshire. My Grt. Grt. Grt. Grt. Great Grandfather Richard Edmanson married Anne Bottrell on 23 February 1764 in Settrington. He died their in 1779.
I would like to know where he came from as there is no record of his birth in the Settrington parish records. There is of course the possibility that he arrived in Settrington and had his name spelt incorrectly by the Parish Clerk as there is of course a strong likelihood that he would be unable to read or write.
I am in possession of my Family Tree down from Richard if anyone is interested, but my main interest is previous to Richard

My family origins are from Knaresborough,when i can trace my now hyphenated surname back to 1854 , for sure , and suggestions back to 1840.
It is the records pre 1837 i e parish, which hopefully can show when the two names became joined .i understand that the double surnames became fashionable around 1800 so that would be a start.
Linking the Ellerker part to one of the main branches of the family would be a real bonus .

I am a descendant of the Ellis family of the West Riding of Yorkshire, who, at one time owned Savile Mills in Dewsbury. Samuel Ellis had a daughter, Olive, who married T W Travers, probably early in the 1900s. Olive had at least two grandchildren, Christopher and Bridget, who are probably now around 60 years old and were last known to be living in Manchester and the Lake District, respectively. If anyone can put me in touch with them I would be most grateful as I am researching the family history and the Ellis side seem to have lost touch with the Travers side.

Ellison
My ancestor William Ellison (1780-1845 ?) was born in Yorkshire, England. He married and lived with his family in Sandy Creek, Oswego County, New York. He appears there about 1815. His first child was born 1820. His parents may have been Benjamin and Elizabeth of Harewood or William and Hannah of Harewood. His naturalization record in Oswego County, New York said he was born 1780, York, England. He submitted papers on Feb. 19, 1844. He is not on the 1850 Census. He probably died between 1844 and 1850. I wonder if he served in the War of 1812? I would love to hear from anyone who has any information.

Ellor
I am looking for anyone who may be descended from Maria (Martha) Ellor, (b. 1814 Denton, d. 1899) who married William Taylor b. 1834. They had seven children: Dr John Ellor Taylor; b. 1837; William Taylor b. 1840; Sarah Taylor b. 1844; Ann Taylor b. 1847; Thomas Taylor b. 1850; James Taylor (My Grandfather) b. 1852; Samuel Ellor Taylor b. 1856. For some reason the name Ellor was handed down to subsequent family as a middle name, e.g. my name is Peter Ellor Taylor.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. I particularly would like to know of William and Maria’s own parentage/siblings etc. as well as of any descendants.

Emmerson
I have recently started tracing my Emmerson family tree and would really like to hear from anyone who has information on Emmerson’s in the Durham, Hull, Beverley area etc.
My great-great-grandfather, John Emmerson, was one of seven brothers and I am very keen to trace them. I know one brother died and another emigrated to Australia.
His son was called John Richard Emmerson, he married Emma Jane Stephenson and they had three sons, Bernard, Ernest and Philip. Philip was more formerly known as Pop. They lived in the Hull area.
I would be most grateful for any help I can get in my search for missing family members.
