I am researching the family of Thomas Hird who died at Skipton on 21st January 1792. He had married Ellen Green at Skipton on 9th October 1753. They had a number of children including Richard who was christened on 3rd. July 1763 and married Nancy Whittaker of Cowling at Skipton 25th July 1786. Richard was a tailor. Richard and Nancy had a number of children including, in 1790 Henry Whitaker Hird. Henry Whitaker Hird had a number of children including, I believe, a Henry Hird in 1819 at Skipton. Henry 1819 married Hannah Thompson 1838 at Skipton. Hannahs father was a lead manufacturer.Henry owned and operated a number of canal barges on the Leeds Liverpool Canal.
I would welcome any information on this family.In particular on Henry Whittaker Hird.
