red mail William EMBLEY 1791- 1866 - help in tracing his parents
I am trying to find the birth register of William Embley. He married Mary Wells in the parish of Great Mitton, Yorkshire on 23 July 1814 and they had a number of children including my 2nd great grandfather Mark Embley 1833- 1894. In later years William and Mary and the family lived in Clitheroe Lancashire. In all the census William's corresponds to a birth date of 1791 and his birthplace is named as Waddington, but I have searched ALL the transcripts of Waddington, Clitheroe, Great Mitton, Little Mitton and Bashall Eaves with no success. I haven't yet been able to find scans of the registers. There are lots of Embley families on those locations but no sign of William's parentage. The only clue that I have is that on the same register and on the day that William and marry got married, Thomas Mercer married MARGARET EMBLEY - possibly a double wedding? Was she William's sister or cousin? I can find Margaret's family easily but she already has a brother William b 1780 who married a Margaret Nowell. Can anyone help me to find out where William's birth record is and who his parents were? Thanks
red mail William Croasdale bap 30 9 1661 Waddington
This I think, is my ancestor. I have traced my Croasdale family back fron Oldham, Lancs, to Thornton in Craven, Gisborn and finally to the township of Henthorne in Whalley parish. William married Margaret Roberts of Newsholme, in Gisborn parish in 1686..I know he was one of the Newhey Croasdales, and they were Quakers. I do know of Thomas and Agnes who went to Penn, USA.William is the son of Robert Croasdale of Browsholme in the Boland Forest,and he was the son of William C the Elder of Newhay as was Thomas who married Agnes Hawthornwaite.

red mail Ancestors
All my English family was from Yorkshire and had the surnames Brooks (changed to Lee in Boer War), Waddington, Lambert, Watts, Grainger, and Baxter. All of these surnames, save Grainger which is from Latin, derive from the Germanic Saxons, and even Grainger was used by the Saxons. Does this indicate that we descend from the Saxon tribe necessarily, or that we just took names popular in the dominant new language 1,000 years ago, i.e., English?

red mail Croasdale
My great x 5 grandfather, Henry Croasdale, was born in Waddington in 1695. I am interested in the Quaker Thomas Croasdale who went to Pennsylvania on the Lamb in 1682 and was granted 1000 acres by William Penn. I want to find the link with my Greatx5 grandfather as both were from the same village it seems. Janet
