I'm researching the following Wardmans and would be interested to hear from anyone who has any links to them.
John Wardman was born in Killinghall, Yorkshire and baptised at Ripley parish church on 8/6/1800. He married Bessy Nelson in 1827 at Otley parish church. Children were William, Henry, John, Mary, Charley and Elizabeth.
John's father was Francis Wardman. He was born in Killinghall in 1767 and baptised at Ripley. He married Mary Carr in 1792 at Hampsthwaite. Children were William, Elinor, Elizabeth and Robert. There may be more children.
Francis's father was Samuel Wardman of Killinghall. I know nothing about him. A Samuel Wardman married Eleanor Benson at Ripley in 1744 but this might be stretching it a little for them to be Francis's parents. I know 22 years of child bearing wasn't unheard of!
If anyone has any further info about them or can find any links to their own Wardman ancestors I'd love to hear from you.
