Ancestors and Descendants of the Kirkus and Newlove Families Updated February 20, 2003
About Our Family Research
I have been researching these families from their origins in East Yorkshire to Liverpool and Accrington in Lancashire and eventually followed some of their fortunes world wide. Many other connections have followed. Other names in my quest are HARDWICK,HADWIN,BURGESS HAYWARD, CURLETT and MILLER from Liverpool, CARLING, WAUDBY, BEATT AND COCHRAN from Hull, SHARPLES and JACKSON from East Lancashire, MC'FADDEN,FYFFE and GRIEVE from Co Down and PRICE from Cardiff. It is a fascinating story, from Yeomen in Yorkshire to poverty in the cotton mills,a strong connection with the Independent Church, emmigration to a new life in America and Australia. My ancestors were a varied and enterprising mix. I find them fascinating and I hope that you will too.
