I have started this family tree to find out more about the Salkelds and other ancestors, my father James Cheyne Salkeld was born in Musselburgh, Midlothian, Scotland in 1892. He had a lot of brothers and sisters. Joseph, John, Laurence who was killed in the first world war at 24yrs of age.His sister's were Jane, Jessie, Agnes & Elizabeth.His mother remarried after his father died,and this was to Michael Brown,I know I had an uncle John Brown from this part of the family.
My Fathers father was Joseph Salkeld born 1857 in Tyne & Wear. His wife was Elizabeth Cheyne born in Leith,Edinburgh in 1867. Josephs father was John Salkeld born 1827 in England.His wife was Elizabeth Dent born in 1834 England.They were married in Monkwearmouth in 1852. John's father was Laurence Salkeld, his mother was Mary Thompson, they married in February 1817 in Easington, Yorkshire. Thanks for this information goes to Graham Salkeld who helped me to piece some more information together.
I have visited Great Salkeld & Little Salkeld in Cumbria.
My mothers family was made up of Knowles,Robertson's,Simpson's, Ritchies, Wolverson's & Lyon's.My Grandfather Knowles were coalmerchants from the southside of Edinburgh. I know some of my mother's family emigrated as I can remember them visiting when I was a child. Some also stayed at Craigour in Edinburgh. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I have gained a great deal of information about the Wolverson's from Andrea,Kathy,Philip & Ken.Thank you all.
My husbands family consists of Swords, Quinn's, Sloss's, Toner's & Gilmours. I have traced his Sword ancestors back to Dumfries in Scotland.
