Hi Donald. My maternal family name is Monkman and I am directly related to Tomas Monkman b: 1795 He married a Mary Carr in 1818. They had four children as far as I can find, George Carr Monkman b;1819 Elizabeth B; 1819, she married Arthur Bennett, Thomas b:1823 and Mary b: 1829. George Carr is my Gt.Gt. Gt. grandfather. My mothers mother was Eliza Mary Monkman who married a William George James in 1900
I am still researching The Monkman family and will be visiting Beverley Records office again in September.
