Greetings Lesley and thanks for the prompt reply. I guess we'll wait to see what your cousin Don has to contribute. So far it seems that all my ancestors on the paternal side were born and lived within 15 or so miles of Thornhill by Dewsbury.I'm the exception, born in London (UK), came to Canada in 1956.Other Yorkshire surnames in my tree are Green, Dixon, Couldwell/Cowgill, Noble, Boothroyd and of course Haigh. And I'm now a 72-year-old fogey! Regards, Frank.
