I have just purchased a copy of a booklet Ilkley 1847 which deals with Land Occupiers on the Tithe Map 1836. by Moria H Long
Includes a copy of the Print by Girin [1775-1801 ] in Leeds Art Gallery showing the town from the River Wharfe and mentions the farm of Joseph BEANLAND, then the only house on Bridge Lane
There is a copy of the map included but the research needed is in the Apportionment Books
Page 37 cover the history of Joseph aged 35 in 1847 traced back family to 1630's son of Thomas It says he died in 1861, younger son John went to America and died in Minneaopolis in 1855 Eldest son Joseph became the main Grocer in Ilkley until recent years.
I am seeking the ancestry of Avarella Letitia BEANLAND 1702-1769 who married James RAMSDEN in 1726 in Ilkley
