red mail Fitton or Litton or Pitton and Littlewood
In my Dad's line are the Fitton Family (often transcibed wrongly as Litton or Pitton) and I think Littlewood family. In 1841 census Benjamin fitton was a Farmer living with his wife Mary Ann and children Joseph 3, Susannah 2 and John 2 months old, They also had Jane Littlewood aged 11 with them so I presume Mary Ann was a Littlewood. They lived in Moor Bottom Cleckheaton area and later had 3 more children - Alfred, William and Elizabeth. By the 1881 census my ancestor William was an ironworker in Warrington having lived with his wife Louisa in Pontnewynydd in Monmouthshire and Cinderford Glos Does this link in with anyone else's family tree? Thanks Judy

red mail Spencer family, Cleckheaton
Hello, My friends, Henri and Eva Macuk (née Spencer) have just spent 10 days in Yorkshire with members of their newly-found family. (See earlier ‘Sam Spencer’ posts) They were able to trace these people largely through the information and support provided by people who use this forum, so on Eva’s behalf, I’d like to say ‘thank you’. During their time in Yorkshire, they were able to locate the graves of Eva’s great-uncle Frank (brother of her grandfather, Sam) and her namesake, great-aunt Eva. They also found, through records in the local library, Sam had a son (Maurice born 28.09.1914 in Gomersal) with his then wife, Nancy Pennett before he left for the war in France. However, nothing else is known about Maurice. Sam’s brother, Frank, whom they found died on 02.09.1972, was married to Marion Thurmann (? Surname apparently unreadable) on 30.08.1930 in Cleckheaton, and had three daughters, Molly (22.02.1931), Marjorie (12.09.1934) and Christine (09.05.1940). It seems that it was Christine who contacted Pierre Spencer (Eva’s father) in France between 1990 and 1995, and she was possibly married in 1965. I know we’re into the realms of recent, living history here, so I’m not sure how appropriate it is for this forum, but if nothing else, it’s very interesting to see a piece of research coming to fruition, and I assume, rewarding for all of the people who have helped. There are still many unanswered questions. Why isn’t Marion buried in the same grave as Frank? What happened to Nacy Pennett (alive at least until 1973)? What happened to Maurice Spencer? (He is in the Electoral Registers with his mother until 1939). And most importantly, what happened to (and even the possible whereabouts of) Molly, Marjorie and Christine, who, in the 1940’s, used to write regularly to their cousins in France (Eva still has the letters). If anyone can help with anything here, that would be wonderful, but above all, a very big thank you, for everybody’s help to date! Neil
