From local sources in Grimsby we are researching the Cleethorpes APPLEYARD families and their many descendants (along with the other inter-related old Cleethorpes fishing families : CROFT, GRANT, COULBECK, OSBORNE/OSBOURNE, CHAPMAN, ROWSON/ROWSTON etc) and would be pleased to hear from anyone with connections to these families. We have Dr James APPLEYARD, born 1838 Cleethorpes, the son of James,b 1803, whose MI in Cleethorpes Cemetery states (as transcribed) : "........Also James Appleyard MRCS Eng L,S. A Lond, J P., son of the above who died in Longford, Austra? 7.8.1889, age 51" However the provisonal ancestry we have for his father does not at the moment include the John mentioned in the original message (e-mails bounce). We would like to make contact and compare information.
