Hugenots in Yorkshire

red mail Johnson/ Kirby/ Hart families Leeds
Does anyone have any info on Thomas Johnson, who I believe was born in Hull in 1833. His father was born in Whitgift in 1801 but moved to Hull. Thomas had a daughter named Eliza who married George Kirby who came from Linton/ Pocklington way. They were married in Leeds in 1874 when Thomas was described as a contractor. However after the marriage Eliza was found in Hull and my grandma Ada was born there but the family moved back to Leeds when she was three years old. I think Eliza stayed in Leeds because my grandma Ada married John Hart in Leeds when she grew up. I would really love to know where Thomas was born and if he was part of the Johnson family residing in Sculcoates Hull also whether he lived in Leeds or Hull. I would also like to know what Thomas' wife's name was. Someone said that he came from Knaresborough but I can't find a connection there apart from a Thomas Johnson who was born in 1815 there but I think that would be too old for Eliza's father, unless anyone out there knows different. I would also like to know if he was related to John William Johnson, born in 1877,of Sculcoates who ran a fish merchants in Hull with his brothers and what his brothers names were. I would be very grateful for any info as I am completely bogged down by this. Thanks Carol.

red mail BOWERS William in Hull circa 1880
I am trying to locate more details on my 2xgr grandfather William BOWERS. The only definite info I have is that he was the licensed victualler of the George & Dragon pub @ 101 High Street Hull in Dec 1880 when my gr grandma Betsy CAPES (nee BOWERS) was born. He died 29/03/1881 aged 54 i.e. a few days before the 1881 census so we have no idea where he was born (circa 1827). I have tried to follow all the Williams who were born around 1827 but unable to find the correct one who could be in Hull in 1880. On Betsy's birth certificate it gives the indication that he had married my 2xgr grandmother Elizabeth BOWERS late BRACKENBURG formerly SMITH. However have been unable to locate a marriage cert, even for BRACKENBURG He left a will but he leaves everything to his house keeper Elizabeth SMITH ! and there is no mention of his birth town, only Hull. My granddad is led to believe that William was stationed in Canada for some time as part of the British Army. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Jo.
red mail Aneurin Bevan Lodge
Can anyone tell me what this place was for in the late 80s please.
red mail Thomas Scane/Skane/Scaine
Looking for info regarding Thomas Scane/Skane/Scaine family who were supposed to be involved in the whaling industry in Hull in the late 1700's early 1800's before coming to Ontario Canada, on one of their own ships abt 1820. They were apparently a well to-do highly respected family of the area. Thomas b about 1765, married abt 1793 possibly to Jane (maybe a Waddingham and maybe in South Cave). Children, Jane b about 1795, Besty, Ellen (died in England), John b 1800 possibly in North or South Cave and Thomas b abt 1805 possibly in Hull. John, Bessy and Thomas may have been baptized in North Cave. Looking to confirm whaling connections and parents/siblings of Thomas. Any help info would be appreciated.
George Henry Cottam/Annie Stephen
I am trying to track down any information about this couple and possible siblings. George Henry Cottam Bn 1897 married an Annie Stephen at the Registery Office Hull on 20th December 1928. Cottam gave his occupation as 'Licensed Victualler' of 12 Grindell St, Hull and Stephen gave her address as The Lansdowne Hotel, Anlaby Rd. I know of the Hotel. They divorced in late 1930's. They both originated from the Ecclesall Bierlow area of Sheffield and as no Family members of the Cottam family were present it is suggested they might have disgraced the family name in someway, possibly a pregnancy. George Henry Cottam (JNR) was also left out of his fathers will which would indicate something was wrong also.Hope someone can help, Regards Gillian
William & Elizabeth JONES in HULL around 1770-1790 ?
William JONES (a son of Jacob ben Naftali Ha-Cohen from LAUTERSBACH and / or FULDA), probably born in 1750-51 in FULHAM, left KINGSTON upon HULL between 1787 and 1795 towards Denmark, where he settled as a merchant in the Grocery line in COPENHAGEN. In England before, he seems to have been a merchant in porcelain ("china"). He was married with a certain Elizabeth, about 20 y older than he's, who died at COPENHAGEN in 1809-10. They were accompanied by their children, Elizabeth and William, both probably born in Hull around 1775-80, who married resp. 1801 and 1805 at COPENHAGEN Johan and Caroline KIETZ, also brother and sister. Any other data concerning this family's arrival to / staying at HULL would be very welcome. I am a direct descendant of William's brother Jonathan who came to BRUSSELS in 1815 and died there in 1829. Thank you everyone !
red mail Dargue and Rosen
I have found the death of my gt grandfather after 5 years of searching. It has confirmed that he did indeed go off (we think with another woman) and then died later than first thought. He died on January 1st 1938. Albert Ernest Dargue died at 5 Durham Street in Hull and the informant was an E. A. Rosen. Is there anyone out there who could find out information of where he could be buried or who this Rosen person was please. Did they have more children if this is the lady he went off with? I would love to know more. Thanks in advance for your help.
Joshua Dawson
I'm trying to find the baptism record/birth place of Joshua Dawson. Born about 1814 Yorkshire. All the census I have says he was born in Kingston upon Hull. He married Margaret Gask(e) in 1839 in Hull. On the marriage cert his father is stated as "the late John Dawson" occupation - tailor. Joshua was also a tailor. Can anyone help me find Joshua's baptism record and the name of his mother. Also the names of any siblings Joshua had. One other problem, I can't find Joshua, Margaret and family on the 1861 census. By 1871 he became a grocer in North Myton, Kingston upon Hull. Other families related to the Dawson's are Galsworthy, Pattinson and Bristow. Thanks Maxine
