My mothers great grandfather was Bernard(Barnabas/Barnabye) Kirkbride born 1815 at Tornton Yorkshire, he married Esther in 1840. His father was William (1774-1820)who married Dorothy Tate. His father was Barnabas (1745) who married Agnes Moore in 1770.His father was Benjamin (1703) who married Ann.Up to this time they lived in Thornton in Lonsdale Yorkshire. Before this we believe they lived at Skelton and Benjamins father was John (1677) who married Jane Ritson in 1696.We think his father was John (1656-1707) who married Betsy Ann in 1676. We have an idea of where they originated from and think it is from Michael (1506)from Heskitt in the forest Cumberland. John (1530)m.Jane in 1547. George (1547-1597) m Eliz Stephenson. Barnabye (1568) m Jayne in 1589. Bernard (1610) who did not marry but changed his name to de Kirkbride and had Mathew who married Magdelene Dalson in 1655.Bernard de Kirkbride moved to Canada and his parents brought up his son Mathew. Can anyone confirm this.
