red mail SUGDEN, Maria and Robert
I have just started trying to look into my ancestors and have reached my great grandparents who I believe to be Maria and Robert Sugden, who ran a grocer's business in Keighley according to the 1891 Census. By 1901 Maria is shown as a widow, aged 56, running the business. I believe they had six children, George Greene, Sarah, William, John, Clara and my grandfather Harry. I think their parents were William and Elizabeth. I cannot track any info regarding Maria, particularly their marriage or her maiden name, or the parents William and Elizabeth. If anyone can help with any scraps of information I would be so grateful. Thank you, Pauline.
red mail Percy Stead b 1878 and Ada Stead b abt 1881
I am looking to establish the parentage of the above, both born in Keighley. I am having some success with Percy - it looks as if he is the illegitimate child of Emily Harriet Stead but I cannot pin down even the birth of Ada. However, I am assuming that she and Percy are siblings because both are recorded as living with their aunt, Fanny Broadbent, in the 1891 and 1901 censuses. Percy is still with her in 1911. Does anyone have any information? Thank you. David.

red mail Stephen H Howell
Stephen H. Howell married Mazilla L. Barker in Coventry during 3rd Qtr 1921. I believe they may have had a daughter Gladys M. Howell, born 4th Qtr 1923 in Ripon.

If anyone knows of this family, I'd appreciate hearing from you. Regards, Philip

I am seeking descendants of HERBERT PIGHILLS born 1887 Keighley, He was the son of Hannah and John Pighills. Herbert married LUCY MOORHOUSE born 1886 Bingley. I have found at least four children: Amelia, Mary, Charles K and Hugh D Pighills born between 1912 and 1921.
I am seeking descendants of WALTER MOORHOUSE born 1886 at Keighley. He was the son of Elizabeth (nee Brown) and Walter Moorhouse. The family lived at Bingley, Keighley and in 1911 their address was 17 Belle Vue Terrace, Keighley. Walter had 7 siblings: Alice Ann (born 1882 Bingley, married Arthur John Taylor), Hannah Moorhouse (born 1884 Bingley, married Joseph Dixon), Mary Elizabeth Moorhouse (born 1885 Bingley, married Fred Wilson), Lucy Moorhouse (born 1886 Bingley, married Herbert Pighills), Florence Moorhouse (born 1889 Bingley, married Herbert A Gavins), Ernest Moorhouse (born 1890 Bingley, married Rosetta Betts) and Edna May Moorhouse (born 1900 Keighley)
I am seeking descendants of JOHN VICTOR BROWN born 1886 in Keighley. He was the son of Sarah (nee Tempest) and Edward Brown who lived in Keighley, Kirkby Malham and Airton. John Brown married ANNIE ELIZABETH SARGINSON in 1914 at Aysgarth. She was the daughter of Lily (nee Twidle) and Thomas Sarginson. John Victor Brown had a sister called BERTHA BROWN born 1886 in Keighley. She married WILLIAM ENGLISH in 1908 at Burnley, Lancashire. They had a son Edward Victor English born 1910. Bertha and William English were living at 14 Blenheim Street, Burnley at the time of the 1911 Census.
I am looking for descendants of John Edward Hodgkinson born 1882 at Keighley, West Yorkshire. He was the son of Mary Ann (nee Brown) and William Hodgkinson. John's siblings were: Ernest Hodgkinson (born 1883), Herbert Hodgkinson (born 1884, married Ann Wright), Albert Hodgkinson (born 1888, died 1904), Thomas Hodgkinson (born 1891, possible marriage to Lilian Crowther), Benjamin Brown Hodgkinson (born 1892, possible marriage to Daisy Lena Mitchell), Charles William Henry Septimus Brown Hodgkinson (born 1896) and Alfred Brown Hodgkinson (born 1897). I have John Edward Hodgkison marrying Emily Jane Scull in 1902 and there seems to be at least four children - Elsie (born 1904) Arthur (born 1907), Ernest (born 1913) and Mary (born 1914).
red mail Keighley Mitchells
I am looking for information about Keighley Mitchells. The family in question moved to Keighley from Manchester via Halifax by 1871, The father James was born 1829 in Huddersfield. The mother was Betsy and their children were Samuel, b1852, William b1854 (my greatgreat grandfather), Elizabeth b 1858, James b 1860 and Amelia b 1864. By 1881 it all gets a bit unclear. The first three siblings are easy enough. Samuel has married Martha Pickles, moved to Dewsbury and has four sons; Arthur, Thomas, Allen and Victor who all eventually marry and have children too. Samuel becomes a prestigious dentist. William moved to Halifax, then Leeds wher he was a dentist, married Sarah Ann Greenwood and they had three girls, though only two survived to adulthood. Elizabeth married Frederick Brook and had at least seven children. I have not traced descendant of these familes back to the current day. However in 1873 Betsy has died, + in 1881 James + James jnr, assuming I have the right records, are living in seperate boarding houses and I can find no trace of Amelia alive or dead. James jnr proves impossible to track after this as it is a common name in Keighley and elsewhere. Again, assuming I have the right record,James snr lived in boarding houses until his death in 1902. It is possible Amelia married William Henry Smith - a publican in Keighley - in 1890. But there was another Amelia Mitchell of the same age in Keighley in the '81 census (def not the right one) so this may well have been her. Does anyone out there have information about this family? Particularly in relation to James jnr, Amelia and if they ever married and had children. Also interested to find descendants of all four siblings apart from William. Thanks

red mail Mills family (1810 - 1860)
I am trying to find information on the Mills family who lived in Keigley between about 1810 and 1860. My gx3 g'father, John Mills, and his father, Thomas Mills, were both interred at "St John's, Keighley" in 1861. I assume this would be St John's, Ingrow? Have any of the local history societies published monumental inscriptions for that church? John Mills was baptised at the Independent or Congregational Church, Keighley in 1811. This seems to have had only a small congregation - does anyone have any information on this? Thomas was an iron founder. He seems to have married twice - his children with Mary were John, Elizabeth (1813) and Hannah (1815). Thomas married Maria Hardwick in 1820: their children were Hannah (1823), Eleanor (1825), Thomas (1827), Maria (1830) and Mary Ann (1835). Do these names tie in with anyone else's research?

Looking for birth record - CORCORAN
My great grandmother was Eliza Corcoran, b. 19/10/1882(reliable family source) in Leeds but lived and died in Keighley. As a point of interest she married John Philbin in 1907 at ST Ann's Church. I cannot find any supporting documentation of her birth. To add to this I have a suspicion that her parents Ellen (known name) and John(taken from 1891 census)were not married as I am unable to find a marriage source. 1901 census lists Ellen as a widow. If anyone can assist me in unravelling this I would be grateful.
