Hello Sarah, I read your post about the Lodge family from Yorkshire, dated 2001 and the many posts that followed from various people. Well, 9 years later, I am taking up the subject again.
My ancesters were also from Yorkshire - Barnsley area, and I have traced them back to Felkirk in 1699 :
John Lodge born 1699 in Felkirk,near Barnsley son of ...... ? Married Elizabeth Baildon (Beldan) in 1731 in Felkirk.Eight children followed.
Thereafter, 10 more generations followed which I have documented. I would like to find a connection to your line of the family and, as you have researched as far back as 1586, you may find it on your tree. Please take a look and let me know what you find. Regards Shaun Lodge Cebu, Philippines
