Copley and Land families
Among my ancestors is an Eliza Copley, Crstn'd 11/5/1845 at Sandal Magna, St. Helens. She is the daughter of William and Mary Copley (nee Land )who were married 25/11/1823 at the same church, however I am not too sure about the details that I have on the parents. I have a Mary Land, bapt. 16/10/1803 at St. John the Baptist Royston, daughter of John Land and Elizabeth Smith of Notton, but.....I also have a Mary Land bapt. 22/9/1805 at St. John the Baptist Wakefield, being the daughter of George Land and Sarah Hutchinson. To complicate things, I have a William Copley, chrstn'd 19/8/1798 at St. John's Royston, son of Peter Copley and Sarah Blackburn of Cudworth,......and a William Copley chrstn'd 8/4/1798 at St. Michael's Wragby, son of William Copley and Amelia Humes/Holmes. Can anyone please confirm who married who, and are the correct parents of Eliza ? Thank you, Brian
red mail James Freeman
Further to my previous entry, James Freeman would seem to be Walter Samuel James Freeman, a cousin of the person I am trying to find.
red mail Broadheads & Parish look ups offered
I'm researching some of my ancestors named Broadhead who came from Sandal Magna. My 4 x g grandfather, Benjamin Broadhead, was born in Chapel Thorpe in 1790 and lived in later years in Pledwick. He married Susannah Poole from Wragby. Their son, also called Benjamin was also born in Sandal and married Ellen Crowther also from Sandal - if anyone has info regarding this family I would love to hear from them especially as I'm having trouble locating the birth of Benjamin juniors daughter Selina. I have to parish records for Sandal Magna as follows: Bap:1598-1812, Mar:1598-1832, Bur:1598-1812. I would be happy to do look ups for anyone.
red mail Hurd/Halley/Mountain.
Looking for researchers of Hurd,Halley, or Mountain, from early 1800s onwards. These families had close contact with each other. Belle vue, Sandal Magna, and later general Wakefield area. Have information to exchange.
My ancestor DAVID HORNCASTLE was born in SANDAL MAGNA about 1793 he married a girl called ANN GOULDING in 1808 My line comes from their son GEORGE b 1811 in WRAGBY. They could have emigrated to USA in the early 1800's leaving my GEORGE behind because my line can be traced in YORKSHIRE to the 1930's I would appreciate any info about his brothers and sisters
red mail James Freeman
Does anyone have any information regarding James Freeman who appears in the 1901 Census living at Milnthorpe House, Sandal Magna with his wife, Hannah (b 1867/8 Beverley) and his children James (b 1891/2) and Anne (b 1898/9)? Both children were born in Sandal Magna. He was a Coachman, Domestic. I am interested because my grandfather’s eldest brother, James Allen Freeman (b 1868 Loddington, Northants) left home because of a family argument, some time in his mid teens, and was never heard from again. At the time he left, the family was living in Welford, Northants. The James in Sandal Magna seems a good candidate to be the same person. The place of birth is given as Welford, Northants and the date of birth would be 1867/8. Any information would be helpful, either to establish a link or to ‘eliminate him from my enquiries’.
