Re: Nightscales in yorkshire
Apologies for this delayed response. I too have been interested in the links between the Lincolnshire and Hull Nightscales. The latter can be traced back to Thomas Nightscales born 1757 in Caistor, Lincolnshire whose parents were Edward Nightscales (also of Caistor) and Susannah Smithson (of Claxton by Market Rasen). Thomas's family seem to have moved to Hull about 1784 since their daughter Elizabeth's christening is listed there. Another child of Edward and Susannah was Harry, born in 1765 but I have no information about his descendants.
