Hi Lynn, I am researching into various Pullan families in Harrogate and specifically with John Richard Pullan born circa 1833 who was an elder brother of Arthur.
Their parents were James and Mary ( maiden name Ambler). I think this is correct as in the 1851 census a William Ambler is with them and described as John's brother in law. I have not found the marriage to corroborate.
I have details of Arthur and his family in all the census returns upto 1901 except 1861. Can find him there as yet. His marriage to Mary Ann Allit took place in 1866 and she was from Surfleet.Lincolnshire.
I wonder have you made any further progress with the Pullans ? Look forward to hearing from you and will be please to exchange any info that might be of interest.
