I've spent the last 18 hours or so none stop on the internet researching into my family tree.We're all from the North of England.
my eldest sonWilliamb. in Manchester 31.12.1981 mePeterb. in Nottingham 27.06.1952 fatherThomas b. in Broughton, Salford23.11.1920 grandfatherFrank b. in Broughton, Salford 1892 great grandfatherThomas b. in Oldham 1860 or 61 - was a student teacher aged 20 in 1881 at "Normal Training College" in Cheltenham, Gloucs.He later became a schoolmaster in Salford.
Now Oldham is only just over the hill from Huddersfield and Mirfield.Could Thomas Sheard have originated from there?
