red mail Dodworth and Dodworth Bottom. - (Dodworth Bottom - Yorkshire, West Riding)
I am looking for details of the parents of Robert Booth, born 1811 'On the Sea', but whose family came from Dodworth. He married Hannah Robinson, also of Dodworth,c1830 and they lived in and around Dodworth all their lives.Their youngest son Uriah, born c1855, a coalminer, disappears from the census of 1881, but reappears in Manchester in 1891, married, with family. Family legend has it that he fled from Yorkshire after a fight with blackleg (strike-breaking) miners, when he pushed a man off a train. Does anyone know of any industrial unrest in the area between 1871, when Uriah was 16,and 1880? This is the most likely age-range for hot-headed action, and may explain why he was not registered in 1881. Incidentally, this name is sometimes mistranscribed as 'Wiah' or 'Wriah'. Any information on the history of Dodworth, and the Booths, is welcome.
Uriah Booth - (Dodworth Bottom - Yorkshire, West Riding)
General unrest in area due to coal-owners cutting wages. But strike at Church Lane Colliery, Dodworth in May 1877 which lasted until Dec 1877 when the miners had to accept the lower wages.

However, many families had already left Dodworth to find work in other places.

red mail Follifoot - Wood Family - (Follifoot - Yorkshire, West Riding)
Looking to sort out the numerous members of the Wood family living in Follifoot in the 19th Century. Begin with Edward Wood b about 1795 Stainburn Kirkby Overblow and wife Phoebe/Phebe b about 1792 Stainburn, died bet 1851 and 1861. Edward was blacksmith and latterly farmer. The couple had numerous children: William (b c1821 Spofforth?), Richard (b c1823 Stainburn), Charles (c 1824 Stainburn), Ellen (c 1826 Follifoot), John (c 1826 -- a twin? -- Follifoot), Robert (c 1831 follifoot), Grace (c 1832 Follifoot), Jonathan (c 1833 Stainburn or Follifoot), Dorcas (c 1836 Follifoot), Phoebe (c 1838 died bet 1881 and 1891 both in Follifoot), and two possible unknown children, one son and one daughter married someone named Smale. There was a grandchild named Colin Wood (b c1853 Follifoot), who married first a woman named Annie (died bet 1891 and 1901) and then a second woman also named Annie. May have had a brother Michael Wood. Some of Colin's children born in or lived for a time in Follifoot, including Ethel (b c1879 Follifoot), Cyril or Cyral (b c 1880 Follifoot), Norman (b 1881 Follifoot), Alan (b 1884 Follifoot). Who were Colin's parents? Who is the daughter who married Smale? There are also several other Wood families who appear related who lived in Follifoot, Knaresborough and other nearby villages.
red mail Annie Elizabeth LEAROYD in Follifoot 1906 - (Follifoot - Yorkshire, West Riding)
I'm having no luck in tracing my husband's grandmother Annie Elizabeth LEAROYD. Family tradition has it that she died at or soon after the birth of her daughter (my husband's mother). She was married to Norman WOOD. He subsequently remarried was again widowed and married a third time. I have the marriage registration of Norman WOOD and Annie Elizabeth LEAROYD dated November 28, 1906. She was then 22, which would mean she was born late in 1883 or in 1884. Her residence is given as what appears to be "Cone Bed" (?) Farm, Follifoot, and she lists her father's name as Samuel LEAROYD, farmer. Annie and Norman were married in the parish church at Spofforth. One of the witnesses was a Percy LEAROYD, possibly her brother or uncle. I have been unable to find an Annie Elizabeth LEAROYD in the FreeBMD that matches this information. (There is one of approximately the right age but the father is listed as Richard LEAROYD.) Neither can I find her, or a Samuel LEAROYD, in the 1891 or 1901 censuses for Yorkshire, and certainly not in Follifoot, that would fit her description of herself as a 22-year-old farmer's daughter. Can anyone enlighten me on her, her father or the farm name? The writing on the certificate is difficult to read, so "Cone Bed" is very probably wrong, but is as close as I can come. I have always assumed she is Yorkshire born as everyone else in many generations of my husband's family is.
red mail Cold Bed Farm - LEAROYD family - (Follifoot - Yorkshire, West Riding)
I now know that the farm mentioned as her residence in Annie Elizabeth Learoyd's marriage record is COLD BED FARM. Her father died there in 1916, when it is listed as being in Spofforth R D. I can't find this on a modern map -- can anyone give me 'directions' to it (e.g. what road it was on and approximately where) or point me at an old parish map that might show it?
Marrie Family - (Follifoot - Yorkshire, West Riding)
My 2 gt grandparents lived in Prospect Houses in Follifot from 1880's until they died in early 1900's. Patrick and Winefred Marrie originated in Ireland arriving in Follifoot via Knaresborough and Newcastle under Lyme. Patrick was a gardener in the 1891 census presumably working at Rudding Hall. They were Catholics and if anyone knows how I can find out about where they were buried I would be very grateful for the help? Are there any early records for Rudding Hall and where might they be kept? Thanks Margaret

Looking for information on Thomas Hardy or Eliza Hardy. This was Elizas second marriage, her first was to a sykes and her maiden name was Broadbent. Thomas was a farmer and they lived in Fulstone near Huddersfield. I think they were born about 1819 and one daughter was Hannah b1866.
Bray family - (Fulstone - Yorkshire, West Riding)
Looking for more details on James Bray and his parents/G'parents if possible. James was born 20/6/1849 in Fulstone and Chrstnd 23/4/1850 in nearby New Mills. he went on to marry Jane Wood in 1872 in Alverthorpe near Wakefield and they had 10 children. I believe James's father was Joseph, but not sure if his mother was Mary or Sarah, looks like Mary in 1851 census, but his father died early and by 1861 James was living with another family. Any idea what happened to his mother ?, and if this is the correct branch of the Bray family, has anyone any information on James's G/parents, please ? Thanks
