I am seeking information about St Mary's Orphanage Richmond Hill. Priscilla Hudson dob 1891 and her sisters Maria and Winifred were listed in 1901 census as being there as orphans.

red mail PRICE / FEARNE / SUGDEN / McDONEL
Edward Sugden Fearne Price was born in the village of Banks in Leeds on 6th Aug.1810 and Baptised 2 years later in Leeds (St Peter) Parish Church. His mother was Eliza Ferne Price (born in 1789) and was the daughter of Rev. William Price and Sarah Fearne. It appears she wasnt married and added "Sugden" as Edward's middle name  indicating that Sugden may have been the father's surname. I do not know what became of Eliza. Edward later moved to London where he married Marion McDonel (McDonald) in 1844. They in turn had 4 living children: John b.1844 (my Great Grandfather), Sarah b.1846, Eliza abt.1850, Ellen b. 1853, and William b.1854. Young John ran away to sea as a youngster and jumped ship in Australia in about 1859. William married Clari Wills. Would appreciate ANY information from related families, or anyone who can help with additional information on Edward Sugden Price or his family. Many thanks, Patricia.

Looking for any information about ancestors and descendants of John Strother born Leeds 1781, died 1836 at Hull. John married Fredericke Catherine Amelia Redlich in 1810 according to the records I have. They had 12 children, my Great, Great Grandfather Henry born 1825 being one of them. Henry came to Australia with his brother William in 1848 and settled in South Australia. Several years ago I was given a copy of an extensive family tree of the Strothers and I am trying to sort the facts from presumption. A lot of work went into this tree. It appears to be correct in 2 separate parts but I'm not sure the 2 parts are directly connected. A family connection from NZ was recently in the UK but couldn't find a lot out via the usual sources. She is an experienced Geneologist but like me has come to a brick wall. Any help would be appreciated. Julie

I am looking for information on Samuel Aspin (Aspinal) and Ann Child who were married in Leeds, West Yorkshire in 1799. Samuel was a thread maker at the time of his marriage.

red mail Ethel Hulland nee Rix 1896-1945
I am looking for any information on my Great Grandmother Ethel Hulland, who was born Ethel Rix in Leeds on 21st February 1896. I know she was born in Burley/Kirkstall area at what was once 6 Thiers Place. Her parents were Lucy Rix (1875-1901) and Albert Rix (1870-1945). The first census she is shown in is the 1901 Census with her parents and sister Doris. Her mother Lucy died months later months later. Her father re-married on 26th December 1901 at St Stephen's Kirkstall to Annie Elizabeth Stead. In 1911 she worked in the textile industry in Leeds as a Tailor's Machinist. She married Charles Alfred Ernest Albert Hulland in Wortley on 29th September 1918. I know they had one son together called Herbert Derek Hulland who was born 23rd December 1918, She had two more children Lily Hulland born 12th June 1923 in Leeds and Arthur Hulland born 27th March 1925. Both Lily and Arthur were not Charles' children as far as i know and their birth certificates list no father. I need to know what happened as my grandfather Arthur never grew up with his brother and i know Lily died in infancy. I believe that Ethel was estranged from her hussband and her family. She died aged 49 on 30th December 1945. There are lots of gaps in her history that i have not yet managed to fill. For example, why did her marriage end?, why did she not take Herbert with her? why was she estranged from her father, step mother and siblings. If there is anyone out there who may be related to the Hulland, Rix or Stead lines and may be able to help me it would be much appreciated and would solve many mysteries for me.

red mail Williamson/Kellett marriage - help required!
I hope someone might be kind enough to look for a marriage for me, I have searched and searched and drawn a complete blank. The couple are Thomas Williamson (born about 1825, probably in Holbeck near Leeds) and Ann Kellett (baptised at St. Peter, Leeds in 1824, but also probably born in Holbeck). The spelling of the surname Kellett varies to Kellet, Kellit etc. The 1851 census shows the couple living in Manningham, Bradford with a daughter Louisa Ann who was born in 1850. I assume they were married some time between about 1845-1850, but I can find no trace. If someone is able to have a search, they might just find something I have missed. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
