Preston 1664 - 1815
My Preston ancestors lived in Horbury for more than two hundred years. They were weavers and clothiers by trade. I would like to go further back as I am currently "stuck" at Thomas Preston who I believe may have been baptised in the nearby parish of Wakefield, although he married in 1692 to Deborah KIRK and they lived in Horbury. The last of my direct Preston ancestors left county Yorkshire in 1815 to live in county Norfolk. Anyone else researching this line? Anyone with intimate knowledge of Horbury?
