My g g grandfather, Imanuel or Emanuel HAXBY was baptised in Hampsthwaite in 1837. His mother was Elizabeth HAXBY.
I am looking for Elizabeth's family connection. She appears to have had several children with no mention of a father. If anyone has any information about her birth: parents or husband, I would be pleased to hear from you.
I have found the births, deaths and marriages; census records from 1841 and a lot of other interesting information about the Hampsthwaite HAXBYs on the excellent website .
I was also thrilled to stumble across , which has gone one step further and lists the Hampsthwaite and Pately Bridge HAXBYs as family group sheets. Of course all this needs verification, but these are very useful starting points for anyone looking for family in this area of Yorkshire.
