Lovely to find a connection. If you look at my personal site www.Maureen.Leadbeater.btinternet.co.uk you will find details of my research so far. Look on the family INDEX on the home page and then follow the link on any of the Smith's or Wignalls. Thomas's mother was born Elizabeth Smith in Birchwood near Normanton. Elizabeth and William Wignall were married in 1854 and had 2 sons before they moved to Trimdon, Northumberland and Sherburn Hill.They are shown on the 1881 census at Sherburn Hill, my birth place. My Email is Maureen.Leadbeater@btinternet.com if you want to contact me direct.
