|We are researching the ancestors of the WEST family who lived in Lincoln and Nottingham, UK. There were 3 sucessive generations with the name Michael Angelo West (born in 1840, 1869 and 1901 in Lincoln). Their forbear was John West who married Ellen Earl in 1862 in Lincoln. |
Michael Angelo West (1840-) married Rebecca Elvin (1844-)in 1862 in Lincoln. Rebecca was descended from the Emmit family. One of their daughters Kit (Catherine Earl)West (b. 1875) married Jacob Cardon Wallis (a gun and cycle maker) and moved to Canada.
Michale Angelo West (1869-) married Clara Ann Cuthbert (1870-1959) in 1897 in Lincoln. She was the daughter of Boulton Cuthbert and had links to the Hall family in Lincolnshire.
Michael Angelo West (1901-1985) married Hilda May Powell (1906-1965)in 1939 in Nottingham. Her father Arthur Powell had links to the McCall and Hinson families from Manchester, the Lowe family from Nottingham and the Crighton family from Lancashire.
Arthur Powell had two brothers Walter (b. 1880) and Edmund (b. 1883) about whom we know very little - Walter possibly married Susan Handley in 1907. We would love to hear from anyone who knows more about Walter and Edmund Powell, or who is related to them.
We are interested to hear from anyone who is researching any of these families. Would be very happy to share information.
