Someone (family?) submitted data to the LDS about this Fred Illingworth. He was born May 20, 1872 in Thornton, Bradford, son of John Illingworth and Frances Holmes. Brother of brother oFranklin Herbert - b. Feb 13, 1865, Edgar Southworth - b. Aug 3, 1866, Arthur - b. July 11, 1868, Sarah Edith - b. March 16, 1870, Kate - b. May 31, 1874, Ralph - b. Aug 30, 1876, Ernest - b. Aug 17, 1878, and Julia - b. Nov 19, 1880. He apparently married an Emma Nyburg. He died February 16, 1943.
This Fred Illingworth was a witness at the marriage of John Haigh and Eliza Preston in Bradford on August 31, 1895. I have researched and found that Fred would have been a "cousin" to Eliza Preston, daughter of Robert Preston and Alice Whittingham. Alice's mother was Hannah Illingworth who I believe was an aunt to Fred's father John.
I am interested in finding anyone connected to the Preston Family as my Great Grandfather, Albert Hartley is also connected in some fashion - John Haigh & Eliza (Preston) Haigh were witnesses at my GGF's marriage in 1896. I believe my GGF may have been "adopted" by Eliza's Grandparents and therefore been a "brother" to her father.
If anyone researching Fred Illingworth knows anything about his connection to the Preston Family of Bradford I would appreciate hearing from you.
