Our Hepplestall family has been in Liverpool since the 1930's but they were originally from Hoylandswaine near Silkstone and Barnsley.A search of Parish registers and Census records from 1841 plus two Wills dating back to 1650 and 1842 reveal that in each generation there were a number of children.Up to now we have found seven different spellings of the family name over one Hundred years.
James Hepplestone married Hannah Hattersley in 1798 in Silkstone. The male children George, Jonothan and James (b1812)went to live in Huddersfield and remained there at least until the 1851 Census.
Another Male child Joseph remained in Hoylandswaine till his death in 1870. His wife Ruth died in 1872.
Some of Josephs descendants went to live in Wigan, Sheffield,Barnsley, Liverpool, and Birkenhead.
