The pages from this GEDCOM have not yet been generated because they appear to match pages from a GEDCOM you have previously imported to WeRelate.

If you have already imported a GEDCOM containing people in this GEDCOM and you want to replace that tree with this GEDCOM, you need to delete that tree first so duplicates aren't created when you import this GEDCOM. Go to the Family Tree page, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the "delete" link next to that tree.

Main import of GEDCOM holding Inhabitants of Holme in censii 1841 to 1901 Also some earlier PRS (though not complete yet) -almost 4000 people with 8000 source references

People included: - All people who lived in holme during any census - Any close relations of anyone who moved to holme (parents, siblings, spouses and their parents, siblings -any descendant of anyone who lived in Holme

(hence there are many people from nearby parishes - Cartworth, Austonley, Netherthong, meltham

EXCLUSIONS

Inhabitants of Magnum or Mount Pleasant in Holme parish (1841-91) as these were typically journeymen quarry workers wh didnt really relate to Holme - the closer settlement would be hepworth or scholes. Unless of couse they do relate to Holme (proper) residents--Dsrodgers34 20:28, 30 April 2009 (EDT)

Beardsells,Cloughs [28 April 2010]

This is SO exciting. My family is from Holme also - through Beardsells and Cloughs (and Haigh, and Garlick and Bray). I have stood on the land (Meal Hill, Twistleden) where my family lived. William Beardsell and Ann Bray were my geat grandparents. Down the road at Kilnhouse Bank was where the Clough side came from - Joseph and Betty (Haigh) and where my grandfather was born. I am named for Betty Haigh.

Much of my research was done through Latter Day Saints (LDS) site. However, I found many errors there. Then I managed to get onto Ancestry.com. This site was much more reliable. Other information comes from family documents and conversations with relatives (mostly cousins). Some are elderly, and I have been trying to gleen as much information as I can. I have also done some research at the Huddersfield Library. Thus, with so many resourses, I have neglected to keep as accurate records of my sources as I might have. However, I have notes galore on the family.--Betty22 09:31, 28 April 2010 (EDT)


Where do you live now ? I'm in Melbourne Australia.

My mum Is Betty Tidmarsh (1942) she lives here too now. Her mum was Alice Howard(1904 -1989) Her grandfather was Haigh Howard (1869-1957) Her grandmother was Mary Haigh(1829-1920) - Known as Mary 'o't 'mount Her gt grandfather was Joseph Haigh (1802-1888) - from Holmwoods

I think Joseph may be our closest connection.

I went back to visit in 2007 and stayed in a farm cottage now run by Highs direct descendent, Jimmy Howard. had a great time. I have never lived in Holme myself, but have lived in New Mill, Holmfirth, Birdsedge Scissett and Huddersfield--Dsrodgers34 10:02, 28 April 2010 (EDT)


I am in Lowell Massachusetts semi-retired (meaning I teach part-time at a local college).

This has become quite a project for me (a giant jigsaw) which I have been working on for AGES - starting with my husband's family (he goes back to the ssettlers of the USA). My family is still mostly in England and Northern Ireland. Anyhow, many of your tree are on my program, and I am sure there is a connection in there. My Grandparents Arthur Clough and Emma Beardsell are both from the area, and I have gone back a couple of times (not sure of the exact years) Both times a cousin from Manchester joined us as we hiked and explored around. We went up Meal Hill past the farm and to where Twistleden was; we found Shoebroad House (where John and Ann clough were) and explored around KilnHouse Bank (where my grandfather was born) and Brownhill Rd where relatives lived.

I did find that Dinah Beardsell's parents were Arthur (1771-1844) and sarah Barber. Then Arthur's are Joshua Beardsell (1738) and Ann Blackburn (1740) Will keep watching!--Betty22 13:44, 28 April 2010 (EDT)


[29 April 2010]

This is more a procedural question... Are living people supposed to be "not allowed" on these pages? There are several that I have found (myself being one). It appears that they have come from Ancestry.com.?????--Betty22 09:46, 28 April 2010 (EDT)


Thats correct. No living people. I did uploaded all the Holme people myself. If I have you in as a living person thats an oversight - please direct me to it and I will fix it. Pleas eaccept my apology too. The people records have references to ancestry because I developed my list of people in there--Dsrodgers34 10:06, 28 April 2010 (EDT)


Is this your Entry, Betty ?

Person:Betty Clough (1)

I think I merged it from someone's tree on ancestry - in the days when I wasnt sure what I was doing. it might be best for me to remove it, to protect identity--Dsrodgers34 10:30, 28 April 2010 (EDT)


This puzzle is addictive! Somewhere, there had to be a link, and I think I have found it. We are 5th cousins. With a common ancester of John Howard (1771) This is how I think it works: His daughter (Sarah, 1794) married Wm Beardsell. Their son Enoch married Ann Garlick; their son Wm married Ann Bray (my g-grandparents). Your side, if my calculations are correct, goes through Sarah's brother John. So, it is the Howards that make it work.

What is also interesting: one of our faculty is from Holmfirth and her maiden name is Haigh. We have wondered about connections and often talk about "home" (Holme). I shall see her today and pursue it further.--Betty22 09:23, 29 April 2010 (EDT)


Wm and Lucy Pettitt [6 May 2010]

Hi, I love your Holme site.

I think I have information in Wm and Lucy Pettitt. First, I shall check my sourses to be sure they are accurate. However, this is what I think from what I have on my "notes:" In 1881 Wm Pettitt (the schoolmaster) was a border with Lydia Clough(I think she was a widow of Henry)and family (James, Mary and Ben Hinchliffe and their children). They lived at Upper Lydgett. I also have that Wm Pettitt married Lucy Garlick in 1884. According to 1891 census they had 3 children Wm Pettitt 32; Lucy 31; Harry 4; Florence 3; Hilda 1

Lucy Garlick was daughter of Henry Garlick and Mary Schofield who lived in 1881 at Shaw Top in Holme.


If all this is accurate, Lucy Garlick is another cousin of mine. (second, 3 times removed) BUT everyone from Holme is related, right?--Betty22 16:18, 6 May 2010 (EDT)


Source page titles [2 June 2010]

Hello, I noticed that you are creating a few book sources. I wanted to let you know our titling conventions for source pages. For books, they should be titled as Author.Title, with author's name as Surname, Firstname only (an example of that is Source:Hartley, Marie. Life and Tradition in West Yorkshire). You can rename the sources you added that have the author's name in reverse order by clicking on Rename on the top of the source page. Thank you, --Jennifer (JBS66) 06:27, 2 June 2010 (EDT)


Grave of James Crosland, C18th schoolmaster of Holme [13 July 2010]

I have a picture of the gravestone of James Crosland which is now incorporated in a path in what was the graveyard of Holmfirth church but is now a park. I'm not sure how I can forward this to you, however.--Iang 08:40, 12 July 2010 (EDT)


You are probably aware that in WeRelate, No one owns the pages. However if no-one starts a page, they wont exist.

It appears your research standards ar at least higher than mine so please feel free to add (or correct) information such as this. I do appreciate you staring a discussion where you think your research conflicts with mine. In many cases my entries are 'basic" as gleaned form my tree on ancestry.com. It is a huge job to tidy them up and I would appreciate any you would wish to tidy up. The system keeps me informed so thats great.

My hope is to have many people with an interest in the area to become contributors, but to start off I just tried to get entries for anyone who appeared in holme census. In due course I would like to add Cartworth and Austonley, as they were covered by St davids Church. So far I have only enterd PR info in a very sporadic way

Have you seen any almondbury or cartworth originals by the way ? Is there more info than the HDFHS indexes ? I also note that ancestry.com now has much older entries for Almondbury


There are three earlier volumes of Almondbury registers than those indexed by HDFHS. They were published as transcriptions by the Yorkshire Archaeological Society; I can't remember the price but ISTR they were more expensive than the HDFHS indexes, especially as the first volume was published in two parts. They are, however, very good as the transcriber has taken into account the BTs which sometimes make good gaps in the PRs - and sometimes give alternative versions. I know Ancestry published the first vol. as part of a CD many years ago but I don't know if they have more than that online. All the earlier registers are in Latin and, except where extraneous comments are thrown in the format is so rigid that I've been able to to take a selection and load it into a database table without too much effort.

There are also transcripts of earlier volumes of the Kirkburton PRs (Cartworth is in Kirkburton) which were made by Frances Collins in the years around 1900. The earlier volume is downloadable from www.archive.com and the second can be found & downloaded via Google books. In each case these earlier volumes go back into the C16th, 'burton about a generation earlier than A'bury.

The amount of circumstantial detail provided in the registers depends on the whim of who wrote it up. For instance in the early volumes of A'bury baptisms and burials sometimes say where people lived but in the case of marriages only mention this in the case of those from outside the parish. Subsequently they are sometimes more forthcoming regarding marriages but when the new registers came in in 1754 the only residence information relates to parish so a couple from Holme would appear simply as being from Almondbury. As far as I can tell most information available appears in the HDFHS indexes with the notable exception of burials. In the case of burials there is often detail such as "wife of X", "son of Y" and residence in the registers and this is not found in the indexes; fortunately Holmfirth library has microfiches & I can grab the extra information from that.

YAS have also published several volumes of transcripts of the Wakefield Manorial rolls. These only cover a given 12 month period each and are scattered rather erratically over several centuries - several from the C17th, for example but none from the C15th.

Also from Google books is Morehouse's (or Moorhouse's - I can never remember his spelling without checking) History of the Parish of Kirkburton and the Graveship of Holme.


While basic, I think most of my entries are quite accurate - but of course there are errors - and people with more knowledge than me an improve that.

So please add the image direct to the person page you mentioned. I am pleased you are interested, and if you continued to contribute I'd be really happy.--Dsrodgers34 19:57, 12 July 2010 (EDT)


Henry Sheppard Howard [12 August 2010]

Hi,

I am in the process of doing my family tree.

My 2nd Great Grandfather is Henry Sheppard Howard born 1819 in Holme, Yorkshire. His daughter, Ruth Hannah Howard, my Great Grandmother, born in Cartworth married a person called Arthur Woodhead from Holmfirth in 1875. They both moved to Leeds in circa 1900. I have some photos of Ruth Hannah Howard my Grandmother and I am puzzling how to add them to your site. Can you help please. Many thanks Paul Fletcher--Paulfletcher 18:05, 10 August 2010 (EDT)


Paul. I see you have an account.

Make your image file small in terms of Mb then from WeRelate select ADD. IMAGE

fill in the form - with help from the article Help:Images.

When you fill out the form - you can add person page so the image will automatically be linked to that page.

You can also show images in any WeRelate page by putting a link in that page - again refer the help file.


I'd also be grateful if tou also add text relating to any info we dont already have in WeRelate You can put the text in this didcussion page if you like - I will format it on the main page


Trying to locate an ancestor [9 January 2011]

My great grandfather, William Tomlinson, states on the 1901 and 1911 censuses that he was born in "Home" (I guess spelling was not a strong suit). He lived for most of his life in Leeds, but I am anxious to make sure that I get the correct person who is his father. Do you know how I may find out if a family of Tomlinsons lived in Holme at the end of the 19th century. William was born about 1872. Marilyn--Marilyn Myers 03:50, 8 January 2011 (EST)

The 1881 census has nobody of this name born 1872 +/-5. There was one born in Leeds in 1872 & living in Holbeck.

Name                Relation   Marital Status   Gender  Age  	 Birthplace  	         Occupation

Do you know how to access this census on the Familysearch site?

Ian


This is the family that I previously thought was mine, but without finding the Holme connection, I have no evidence for it. I have now found that there are three places in Yorkshire that may be the 'Home' that William mentions. Still working at it.--Marilyn Myers 14:01, 8 January 2011 (EST)


It isn't a name characteristic of the area. Apart form the 1881 census the nearest I have available is 1851. There were no Tomlinsons in Holme at that time. There was a Charles Thomson living at Lydgate, Wooldale, aged 45, an engineer, born in Honley. His wife Mary, 34, was born in Slaithwaite and his children William, 3 and Aquila (!), 1, were both born in Wolldale. There were no Tomlinsons in Honley, however although there seems to have been a family of 9 children altogether, including an Aquilla. Charles, Mary and Aquila were both there in 1881. It's just possible that Joseph could have been a younger son of this family although in that case he's mis-stated both his age & PoB in 1881.

Have you considered the possibility that William answered the question very literally - that he was simply born at home? I have seen some odd but techincally correct answers such as someone stating that he was born in Almondbury, which was indeed the ancient parish although in fact the family seems to have been living in Holmfirth, some miles from the parish church - and about as close to being in Kirkburton parish as they could be without falling in the river.


Yes, I did think that he may have meant that he was born at home, but I need to research the possibility that he was born somewhere called 'Home' as his wife and children had their correct places of birth listed in the 1911 census. Thank you for looking for Tomlinsons in the area. I am now thinking that Holme is not the place he meant. Marilyn--Marilyn Myers 16:28, 8 January 2011 (EST)


Thank you so much for your help. I have found my William Tomlinson at Holme upon Spalding Moor. Marilyn--Marilyn Myers 04:28, 9 January 2011 (EST)


Mary "Mitchell" (112) [16 July 2011]

Hi DSR,

Firstly apologies for adding a note to the Mary Mitchell page, when I should have tried to contact you first. I am fresh to werelate.org & have not yet mastered the navigation. I don't know who added the Mary Mitchell (wife of Joseph Dearnley) info, but I see that you are watching the page, so you are my best guess.

I question this surname and am wondering what was the source. In 1851 Mary's son Isaac was living with his grandparents Caleb Howard & Elizabeth Beardsell, suggesting that Mary was Mary Howard.

Best, Mark (http://familytree.dearnley.com)

BTW - I have just realized that this email may confirm my long-held belief that no-one gets in touch until a fact is questionable! - this may be a good technique to use when trying to collect info :)--Blomble 10:47, 15 July 2011 (EDT)


Quite correct, Mark. Joseph Dearnley married Mary Heward (common variant of Howard in all the local sources) at Almondbury 24 Aug 1835.

When you ask for help in tracing relatives it's always best to give a date so people can limit their search.

I've seen a possible marriage but without knowing the time-frame I've no idea whether or not it's yours.--Iang 08:41, 26 January 2012 (EST)


Crosland family [14 May 2012]

Hi i think we share a branch of family tree! But my Croslands are spelt 'Crossland'

I have my G.Grandfathers birth certificate his name was John Crossland Born 1868 Yorkshire England and his Father was Agur Crossland and Mother Ellen Crossland.

As 'Agur' is quite an unusual name I think we must have the same relations despite the variation in spelling.

Let me know what you think. Kind regards, Jenna. jen79gilbertson@yahoo.co.uk--JennG79 17:47, 13 May 2012 (EDT)

As this page is primarily about Holme rather than Cros[s]lands I'll reply by email to avoid going OT.
