red mail Harland Family
I am looking to find info on John Harland born abt 1805 in South Cave he married Sarah from Holme Upon Spalding Moor and had we think five children. The family spent several years in Swanland Mary Jane was born in Swanland. Children were James 1829 (we don't think is Sarah's child), William 1837, Esther 1844, Mary Jane 1847 (my ancestor) and Margaret 1849. Apart from Mary Jane no trace of the family after the 1851 Census, Mary Jane has a child George Harland at Sculcoates Workhouse age 16.
Born May 1917 or 18 , daughter of Thomas Patterson Hayes, a miner and Elizabeth Simpson. My mother died this year , and I would like to trace any family history, as my mother shared nothing of her early life. I believe her mother may have passed away when she was young, and her father remarried? There may be 4 siblings. She migrated to Australia sometime before her marriage in 1944., possibly as a child.For whatever reason she kept her secret I would dearly love to know any family history, especially any surviving family members
A family named ROSENDALE ( sometimes ROSINDALE ) appear to have lived in Swanland The first link being John, son Thomas baptised North Ferriby 19 JAN 1766, followed by siblings Elizabeth, Mary, Thomas, Nanny, David, Sarah who was baptised 1782 Thomas ROSINGDALE had 7 windows, taxed 4s 2din 1779 and is listed in the ' Swanland Rental ' of that year.

William and Jane died in Ohio 1870 and 1873 One mystery is their son named Charles Rose Rosendale, as not bpt record is listed in the IGI. Family information suggests he was named after Revd Charles ROSE, Curate of North Ferriby at that time c1830 but he is listed as being born in Swanland His son Arthur is recorded as visiting Swanland from the USA and met cousins named WESTERDALE and ' his friend ' James RECKITT ( Sir James Reckitt was Lord of the Manor of Swanland from 1894 ) 1833 - 1924 A brother of Charles was named George Washington Rosedale when bpt Kirk Ella 1828, he died in 1909 in Oaklahoma Most of the family remained as Farmers in Wood Co OH, in Bloom/ Bloomdale
Joel HARPER's Marriage
The 1881 census shows Joel's wife as Ann Elizabeth b Welton.

Yorkshire Marriage indexes for the years: 1860 HARPER Joel EAST William St Andrew (Drypool) Hull JF/2/422
