The Readman family of North East Lincolnshire, England
Updated April 4, 2001
I am researching the Readman family which originates from North Yorkshire, England.
William Readman marries a Mary Tattterson in Cloughton church, neart Scarborough on 31st December 1789. I would like to know more about Mary's family and also William's. I think that he was the son of John Readman and Sarah Dowson of Murkesk, near Goathland, but am not sure. The main family line passes through John Readman to Thomas Featherstone Readman (later Thomas Tatterson Readman) He marries an Elizabeth Dufton in Selby and the family later move to New Holland and Grimsby.
The Dufton's are from Leeds, but I would welcome any more information about them, though the line currently goes back to 1690.
I am also researching the Doughty family in Grimsby and North Lincolnshire and also the Sneath family of Lincolnshire.
I have quite a bit of information on the Readman family in Grimsby, but need to trace the relatives of William Readman born 1853 in New Holland, John James Readman born Selby in 1846,and Joseph Readman born Selby in 1849.
