Towers, Alfred Jones
Alfred J Towers died in Cardiff in 1907. Census entries state his birth place to be Guisborough, Yorkshire circa 1853. I can find no trace of his birth entry. He was married to Mary Imrie. My paternal grandmother, Sarah Annie (Towers) Boyett was his daughter. Any help with this would be appreciated.

red mail Cooper, Postgate
Looking for anyone with connection/information on either or both of the above names. My gt gm Louisa Cooper was born 1875 in Guisborough, Yorkshire. She had 3 sisters – Isabella, Lily and Florence. Her father was Thomas Cooper, b. 1847 Guisborough who married Sarah Garbutt. Thomas was landlord of the Red Lion Inn, Church Street in 1881, and the Golden Lion Inn, Market Place in 1891. Thomas’s father was Aaron Cooper a carpenter/joiner who married Alice (unknown). Apart from Thomas I believe they had 4 other children – John, Ann, Mary and Alice. Louisa married George Edward Read in 1901 in Kent, and Florence married Richard Postgate in 1909. If anyone has any info they can add, I would be very grateful.

red mail Guisborough - Henry Lisle
Looking for any information on the family of HENRY LISLE. He was a Woolen Draper who Died 15th day of January 1664:he had THREE sons and five daughters. The bulk of his estate went to his firstborn son Morris, and his other children received £150 each. The Will was Proved at York (Cleveland Deanery) on the 8th day of May 1668. Church Briefs reveal that he was a wealthy trader and that he had lost more than £4000 through "fire and shipwracke". His name is inscribed on a silver chalice in the Parish Church where he was a Churchwarden. There is also another Henry Lisle died in Whitby 1713 and his Will was Proved at York (Cleveland Deanery). Believed to be a Cotten Merchant. Are the two linked?

red mail Willans/Willens
I am searching for details of the parents of Joseph Charles Willans or Willens, whose birth was registered in Guisborough in the first quarter of 1898. Both versions of the surname seem to have been used in the family. I am also interested in details of his siblings. They may not have lived in Guisborough itself, but somewhere in the surrounding area.
