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.
