This Thomas Frankland ,born 30 April 1840 in Asenby was my husband Don's Gt.Grandfather and son of another Thomas Frankland, a wheelwright in 1841 and later listed as a Timber Merchant on his son's marriage entry in Helmsley in 1863 to Frances Hannah Strickland of Bransdale. There are Franklands who lived on the North Moors but though I have searched and noted all Franklands in the Kirkbymoorside, Rosedale and Thirkleby parish registers and in the I.G.I., I have not found that line of Franklands there. Gt.Gt G.father Thomas Frankland was married to Ann ? about 1838 perhaps and both were born from about 1811-1816 . We would like to find out the following :Ann's surname, place of marriage and date and place of each one's birth. They had two other children that we know of; Jane Frankland born about 1839 (aged 2 years in the 1841 Census) and Anne born in 1843 also in Asenby. This village was in the Topcliffe Parish . If anyone can help with these leads and/or with descendants of Jane and Anne,we would be immensely grateful. I may be able to help with identifying other Franklands in the areas which we have researched. Don and Anne Frankland .
