I am researching several of my ancestral lines.
I married into the Lightfoot family and have started researching this line. My Husband, Darren Paul LIGHTFOOT was born in York, England, in 1965. His parents were Peter LIGHTFOOT born 1927 and Irene Winifred STUBBS born 1932.
My father, Brian DAVIES. was born 1934 in Lancashire England to George Alfred DAVIES and Emily (nee CUNNINGHAM). Emily died when he was 4 years old and George abandoned him (he travelled with the Gypsy fairs). Dad grew up in a childrens home in Staveley near Kendal in Cumbria. He had two half-sisters whom he last saw in 1938, Rhoda and Lena LOCK. Their mother was called Clara LOCK and I believe she may have been from Ireland. I am very interested to find links on this side of the family.
My other surname interests are:
Heppell, England, Whiting, Wharram, Gallimore, Crawshaw, Wood, Green, Bell, Stubbs and Johnson.
All my research is based in the counties of Yorkshire and Lancashire, England at the moment although I have family in Australia and Canada. I have also found links with America but very distant links! Any information or interest in these names will be greatly appreciated.
