Re: The Gater Family Of Staffordshire & Yorkshire
I am also researching Staffordshire GATER's, however my family name of MYERS is from Yorkshire. Therefore I would also be very interested in anything about the Gaters' 'migration'. My line of Gaters came from the Burslem area. My grandmother was called Martha Alice Gater and was born in 1903 in Smallthorne. Her mother was called Annice Gater who married twice, 1st to a George Amos 2nd to a Frederick Bailey. Martha's Grandfather was Charles Gater and he was a coal miner. Martha's father believed to be Fred Bailey but she was registered under Annice's maiden name.
Hope this helps
Bye for now
