red mail Clark/Armstrong
I am trying to find any family members of Peggy Doreen Beryl Clark (b 1927)(died Nov 2009) daughter of George Clark and Agnes Dent, who was married to Kenneth Armstrong (1958). I believe Peggy had a sister but don't know of any other relatives. I am a family member who lost touch a long time ago and would like to reunite with my family. Any help would be much appreciated. I have information going back but cannot find any information on Peggy's sister or any other branches of the recent family. Many thanks. From Peggy's (Peggie - former warden of Hanover Grange in Bridlington) obituary, it would seem that Mabel is married to Eric (?) and has children, but she is commonly known as Mary. I have two surnames for Eric - Ward or Kalamet. I have ordered Peggy's death certificate, but am anxious to make contact quickly due to Mabel (Mary's) age.

red mail Bridlington
My gt grandmother Mary Pickering was born in Bridlington in 1860. She had six children and I believe that her first two children were adopted or looked after by another member of the family. I believe that the children would have been born sometime between 1875 and 1887 possibly in Bridlington, Leeds or Hull where her other children were born. The father of Mary's last four children was Charles Nichols. They never married, but lived together in Hull. Mary died in Hull in 1929 and Charles died in 1938.

red mail Charles Frederick Barnett/Nora Fitzgerald
I am trying to trace the relatives of Charles Frederick Barnett who married Nora Fitzgerald of Kingston upon Hull in 1908 at the Christ Church Hull. From records I understand he was born in Kingston upon Hull, died in 1952 aged 69, but moved to the Bridlington area during his lifetime and raised a family there. Family as far as I am aware consists of Charles K Barnett born June 1912 in the district of Sculcoates, Hull. A marriage took place of Charles K Barnett in the district of Helm, Bridlington in 1937, birth of Kenneth Barnett 1937, Alan K Barnett 1938, Barbara A Barnett 1945 and Susan Barnett 1948 all registered in the district of Helm, Bridlington. By previous research of the family tree by my late half cousin contacted relatives of the Barnett family in Bridlington (20 years ago). When she died the family tree was unfortunately unaccounted for and possibly destroyed. It is my intention to gather as much information about the family as possible and to renew the lost family tree. If anyone knows of surviving members of the Barnett family please contact me - it would be appreciated - thank you.

red mail Gilmour/Plumpton family
I recently bought a photo album in a charity shop in Bridlington with the name Mrs F Plumpton of 25A Promenade, Bridlington in it.

The pictures appear to date from ca1910 to 1940. Any information would be very gratefully received.

On researching my Cruddas line, another family member has told us that there was a set of triplets. The photograph gives their names as Joseph, Martha and Mary.

We do not know whether their surname is Cruddas, or whether they were born to someone born a Cruddas who had subsequently married and therefore changed their name.

red mail Cruddas in Bridlington/Sewerby
I am researching the line descending from William Cruddas (in particular my line which is from William's son, Matthew). William's father was called John and born in Durham, moving into Yorkshire when he joined the militia in 1795. Can't trace John after 1805 when William is christened in Sheffield. William was living in Bridlington by 1831. Does anyone have any information which could help - I suspect William may have ended up in Bridlington by moving with his father (who may have stayed in the army past 1803). NB there are often misspellings of this name(have 20 variations to date!) so it could be recorded with differing numbers of 'd' 's' or be, e.g. Croudace!!
