He sadly drowned at Blackpool, when aged around 8, I believe. Would love to hear of any links relating to his family. Liz

red mail Pinkney In Angus
When I was visiting an old aunt in North Yorkshire in 1957, she told me that my father's mother, Annie Elizabeth PINKNEY, was the daughter of David Gullon PINKNEY, "whose father came from Forfar to work at the alum mines in Sleights (a small town near Whitby)." David Gullon was born 1825; his fatherÕs name was Anthony PINKNEY. If my aunt was right, Anthony must have moved from Forfar to Yorkshire in the very early 1800's. She also mentioned "the Gordon clan." By "Forfar" I assume she meant County Angus. She gave me some other information which turned out to be incorrect. What I wish to know is whether ANY Pinkneys have Angus connections.
