Re: Murder of Uriah Womersley at Kiklees Park, Hartshead cum Clifton, 1827
Your response was much appreciated - it corrects a number of errors on my part.(I had noticed the age problem but was looking for a second wife!) It also raises the likelihood that other errors are being made by fellow researchers who are following a Joseph born 1765 backwards.
I can't find an IGI record for James in 1725 but a James was christened at Birstall 31 Jan 1724. Are they different?
Secondly do you know if the marraige of James is the entry of Birstall 20 Nov 1758 to Sarah Farrand?
Clearly I need to visit Fulneck - not that far away for me!
I am also linked to the Hartshead Mortimers Edward:Matthew:Henry:Fred to be accurate. I'm wondering if Edward's parents were Joseph+Rachel Stainthorpe? The IGI record just gives Joseph.
I would dearly love to know when the Mortimers stopped being farmers and began quarrying. Any idea?
