Chris I have researched my family tree back to 1790, they are Ramsdens from the Elland and Southowram area. My great grandfather was a John Ramsden. Iv'e stopped at James Ramsden born about 1790 who married Hannah Binns at Halifax Parish Church 1810. From the 1841 census they lived at Cromwell Bottom near Southowram Halifax and had Alice, Mary, John and Denton Ramsden. I can only find John's burial, Brighouse parish Church 1837, the remaining family have been lost. If you have any further information or wish to correspond I am using a friends E-mail address which you can use TAYLOR@johnp.freeserve.co.uk. Also if anyone else is searching this site and has any further helpful information please contact.
