As you can see I am a Laybourne. My parents were born in Scarborough (father) and near Skirlaugh (near Kingston upon Hull)(mother). We are now researching our family, and want to complete the family tree. There is a magnificent book (see later) which was written by a Danish member of the family. We would now like to complete his wishes and bring it up to date. There is a copy of the book in Leeds Public Library which you can borrow through your own library. I borrowed it and then managed to purchase a copy. It is a very rare book and it has taken my father and myself 50 years to get hold of a copy. I would love to find out more details of the family as they have been lost in time, but I know there is a heavy East Riding involvement. The book details are: TITLE: The First English Admiral: Lord William De Laybourne And The House Of Laybourn From 1025 To 1938. Author:Laybourn, Robert (Captain) Publisher: Saabye & Christensen A/S, Copenhagen Year of publication: 1938 The British Library Catalogue Number is 9918.bb23
I hope you have succes, as my father, and now my younger son would love to bring the family up to date from 1938. From Yorkshire, we have expanded into America and Australia, and I would love to be able to bring Robert Laybourn's book up to date, and reunite our world-wide family.
I will try to see where Jane Laybourne fits in this endeavour.
