I am related to Willy Applegarth, but not quite sure the exact connection. My family name is Coulson and we come from the Guisboro' area of Yorkshire (now Cleveland) in the UK. His grandmother Phoebe married a John Coulson and had my great grandfather John in 1857, and Willys father Henry c1869. the census show him as being a Coulson. I have a family bible inscribed in 1883 to John from his mother Phoeble Applegarth.Not sure if she remarried and took her 2 youngest children and renamed them Applegarth, but cannot find any records to substanciate this.Do know my grandmother had photo of Willy winning gold in 1912 and was extremely proud of her cousin.Can you throw any light on the change of surname?
