Re: Hinchliffe Dewsbury/Wakefield
Hi David, I am not sure this is of any interest but I have the following from the 1881 Census: Mary L. Hinchliffe born 1871, whose father was John Hinchliffe. They lived in New Town, Upperthong, Wooldale, Yorkshire. Her mother was Hannah and her siblings were Arnold, Evelyn and Joseph H.
Arnold was a part of my childhood and I have facts for him but I never met anyone else from the above group.
At some point in time, the Hinchliffes added another 'c' to the name, becoming Hinchcliffe but this seems only to have happened through the line of the associated Ernest Hinchcliffe (1865 - 1930,) who was supposed to have come from Wakefield.
