Margaret, I have received information from Helen in Auckland - she has also beenresearching the Withell name. I am a descendant of William Withell, born in HuggateYorkshire around 1762,andRhoda Stokes,born1767 in Cherryburton, Yorkshire and died 1851 in Market Weighton.
My Grandfather, Hubert George Leslie Withell is a member of the third generation. He was born in 1887 in Aylesbury, Canterbury, and married Ivy Muriel Round in 1911. There are four Withells in the Brisbane phone book and I received some help from one of them. Her husband had been researching the Withell name prior to his death some eight years ago, and she new your name.
Would like to send this information to you,would you kindly get back to me on this.
