Kitching, Stephenson, Steven, Severs
I recently found info on my gt gt grandfather's 1st marriage to Lydia Simpson in 1840, in Aiskew. He was Christopher Stephenson (misspelt as Stevenson), b. 1816 & she was b. 1820. Lydia died in 1852 & I've found they had 3 children, Robert (1845), Elizabeth (148) & Lydia (1850). I think that Robert died young & can't trace Elizabeth. Lydia went to live with Nathan & Jane Gale, her aunt & uncle, as Christopher couldn't look after such young children alone. Lydia married (William) Ambrose Kitching in 1870. He came from Well & was a stonemason. They had 13 children & I'd love to learn more about them & their families. Their daughter, Sarah, may have married Richard Severs. Thanks
red mail Dorothy MUSGRAVE
Possibly died 1801. Shown elsewhere to be married to Ralph GALE 1763-1823 but possibly married to Thomas GALE causing confusion in my tree. I would be most grateful for any advice on this problem and any further information about Dorothy or the GALEs in this branch of the tree which goes back to Luke Gale in 1695 and beyond. Thank you, Jay

red mail Bedale 1850's - Gower family
Hi, my Gower ancestor Stephen Gower was born in Old Windsor 1823, Berks, and lived in Lambeth, moved to Bedale sometime after the Q1 1854 (after the birth of his son) and was in Bedale for the birth of his second child Lydia Ann Gower born Q4 1855. He later moved with his family to Leeds (sometime between Q4 1855 - Q3 1857). He was a Currier and Front boot blocker. I would like to ascertain why he moved to Bedale in the mid 1800's. Work is a possibility, but I would have thought work would have been plentiful in London where he was based. To move to a small market town in the dales, rather than another large town seems a bit strange. Did he have previous family connections to this area, and that is why he was drawn to it? If anyone has any information or ideas, I would love to hear them. Regards Mandy

red mail Fred Learoyd (b 1901) in Bedale 1916-1918
I'm looking for any information on Fred Learoyd born 1901 in Thornton Steward to unmarried servant Annie Elizabeth Learoyd. By 1918 his mother (who had married and had two more children) was dead and he was living in Bedale, working as a hotel porter. He enlisted in the Army, but gives as next of kin a "friend", a police sergeant at the Bedale Police House. He didn't get on with the army and went AWOL, and his military record suggests he was already a young man in trouble. Possibly his police sergeant "friend" was a copper who had already had dealings with Fred as a young tearaway and tried to help him keep to the straight and narrow. We believe Fred faked his own suicide in the 1920s after discharge from the Army and that he then went to Canada. We're interested to find out anything about his time in Bedale.

Hill aged 11 born in Colne, Lancs., and a niece Kate Mary Hill aged 8 born in Bolton, Lancs. Does anyone have info. on James R? Was Mary C Hill perhaps an Imisson before she was a Hill and this is why she is recorded as sister to Jame R?? Is this why Samuel and Kate Mary are shown as nephew and niece?
