Sharon Sorry for not contacting you sooner, but I wanted to find my records of your great- great grandfather. This is the 1881 census return for 1881 Census return 1881 9th April in Keighley Address - 131 West Lane
A family of Rollisson's lived there- see below, presumably they only lived there from the 1860s, previously they must have lived in Durham- Staindrop.

Let me know who is related to who from above as I feel sure they are related to the Chapel Allerton branch. My tree is from Chapel Allerton in Leeds - where I believe your George born 1825 ishwas the brother of my James born 11.7.1828 who was a quarryman like his father John b 9.6.1796 d 18.4.1861, their mother was Ann b19.12.1799 died 9.8.1835 - I have a family bible of James descendants and his parents- hence the exact dates, unfortunately it doesn't mention his brothers and sisters but going from the births at Chapel Allerton I presume your George is one of the brothers.I have a list of the brothers and sisters.Befor Chapel Allerton they lived in Halton Leeds.My grandfather Norman Rollisson was a cabinet-maker in Leeds in the 1920-50's. Let me know how your tree is developing and how relevant the above is. Regards Diane
