Hi Alison, I was rather hoping you could help me with any info on JK !! Our Mr James Kippax married Susannah Dean (nee Horn(e)) at the Ebenezer General Baptist Church, Burnley 17-12-1884. He was her second husband and they had 4(?) children together. John, Annie Elizabeth, Robert, and James. I have some information on the children ...mostly from recollections of my Grandmother Annie Dean. I know that Robert Kippax died at aged 4 months. Annie's father Herbert was a son of Susannah's from her first marriage to the Rev. William Dean in 1870. There is a note that James Kippax died of TB but I am not sure about this. It also states that he was 23 at time of death but I have nothing to substantiate this either.
My mother's parents, Annie Dean and Robert E. Shackleton were both from Burnley, but came separately to New Zealand in 1921 and married here a year or so later.
Sorry I'm a little late with this...have been overseas and didn't have time to reply promptly.
