I am tracing my mother's family tree - her father was William Scott SIMPSON 1884-1914. A lot of his relatives came from the Hornsea area but he was born in Habergham Eaves in Burnley and later moved to Newport Gwent. He married Violet Lancefield in 1910 and his father was Samuel SIMPSON 1859 - 1933. There are several messages already on this site about the family but they are old. If you know anything about this family please contact me. Many thanks Dianne
red mail Simpson family
I am looking for the family of Simpson in and around Hornsea East Yorkshire. I have a Joseph Simpson married to Jane and several children for them. One of Joseph and Jane's children was called William born 1785c. who I believe married a Grace Foster. Another was Joseph Simpson born 1783 He is my direct ancestor. Joseph Snr.was born in 1756c I believe he may be the son of George Simpson and Jane. All George and Jane's children were born between 1748 - 1757 in Hornsea. Some of the Hornsea parish records are not very clear with parts missing so I have not been able to find a Bapt. for my Joseph 1756c. to confirm his parents. Some members of the family lived at a farm called "Brockholme" on the Seaton Road, it may be that someone has a connection to this farm and family . If so please get in touch with me. Thank you
