Hello Fee, sorry for the delay in replying; family and work take up most of my time, but here is just part of the info I have.Thomas BURNISTON married Elizabeth SUGDON in Pannal Yorks. their daughter Martha BURNISTON (b.1817 Pannal)married William LEE (not sure where or when). William and Martha's daughter, Martha Jane LEE (b.31 July 1855 in Gt Yarmouth) was nicknamed "Nelly"; she married Henry Metcalf RICHARDSON(b.30 Jan. 1853 Sunderland d.10 DEc 1910 Sunderland) Henry and Nelly's third son, John Lee RICHARDSON (b.24 Oct 1877 Jarrow. d.12 March 1953 Middlesbrough)married Agnes MARRON (b.21 Sept 1879 Middlesbrough) John and Agnes' son Billy (b. 14 Feb 1919 d.15 Sept 1994 in Middlesbrough) was my Father.
On the RICHARDSON side of the family, Henry Metcalf RICHARDSON (Nelly's husband) was the son of William RICHARDSON (b. 1825, not sure where yet) and Jane Longstaff METCALF (b. 8 April 1830 Sunderland. d.1899 Sunderland)William's father was John RICHARDSON (no more info yet) Jane Longstaff METCALF was the daughter of Henry METCALF (b. March 1872 Sunderland) and Jane OLIVER (b. May 1872 Sunderland) There is quite a bit more info to send you, and a couple of photos, and you may be able to fill in a few gaps in my records. You can e-mail me directly if you would prefer.John
