red mail Searching for parents of Emily Ingham b1882
My first validated record for Emily Ingham (my maternal grandmother) shows her living as a boarder in the household of William England, in Fleet Street, Scissett in the 1911 census. Her birthplace is stated as Yorkshire which is less than helpful. Of particular interest is a Lister Wilkinson b1845 in Scissett also listed as a boarder at the same address. He was both deaf and dumb from birth. My grandmother married James William Atkin b1888 of Holmbridge in 1914 at a church in Emley. There are Atkin/Jaggar ties to Lister Wilkinson. Emily Jaggar married George William Wilkinson b 1884 to 1890, son of Lister Wilkinson. Emily Jaggar was the daughter of Sarah Ann Jaggar nee Atkin b1864 in Warrington and moved to Kirkburton circa 1865. She had a brother, Matthew Atkin b1860 in Warrington (father to James William Atkin) thus Emily Wilkinson nee Jaggar was cousin to James William Atkin. Emily Jaggar/Wilkinson was a lifelong friend of Emily Ingham/Atkin. Emily Ingham was able to use sign language which anecdotally she had had to use as child in the household of someone who was deaf and dumb (possibly Lister Wilkinson?). I have checked all available census records for Lister Wilkinson and cannot find Emily Ingham listed in his household apart from the 1911 census cited above. Also Emily Ingham claimed to have worked as a servant during childhood and once mentioned having lived in Cudworth, nr Royston. I do hope that connected families can shed light on the parent(s) and birthplace for Emily Ingham and her placement before 1911. Eric

red mail Field family of Skelmanthorpe
The Field family were prominent woollen and fancy goods manufacturers in Skelmanthorpe from about 1800. I have had passed down to me a dark green folder embossed with the words "Field Family of Skelmanthorpe" containing beautifully-presented and professionally printed family trees showing the descendants of John Field, b 1780, and his wife Elizabeth nee Hinchcliff, b 1781, through their 11 children. These were researched and prepared by family member Thomas Edwin Field in 1939, with updates in 1955. I believe Thomas is likely to have distributed his work generously among the various branches of the family when he prepared it, and there are likely to be several other copies of this work out there somewhere. Thomas Edwin's family trees are assigned letters A-K, with each letter representing one of the eleven children of John and Elizabeth. Some are then subdivided where a child had a particularly large number of descendants. I have all the trees other than C1 and C2, which for some reason are missing from the folder. C1 represents my direct line, so I would particularly like to trace a copy of it. If anybody has these trees I would very much like to hear from them. I would be more than happy to provide copies of the ones I have to fellow descendants of this family.
