Hello I am Alfred Read and i am asking if there is a specialist site i can go to to learn more about my ancestors from Hull, most of the early ones resided in the Sculcoates area. Thankyou for reading this.

Thanks Graig .. as far as I know my Stephensons were a William .. coachmaker at Doncaster who died at 50 yrs old in 1806 (he left a will in 1806).. his sons William and Robert both died as coachmakers / Doncaster in 1820 (this second William bried at St Wifrids Church, Cantley Parish .. just E of Donny) .. then a grandson or original Wm born Doncaster 1814 .. married a Mary Scott at Cottingham E Yorks in 1838 .. and came to Ontario Canada in 1854.

Craige .. I know there were lots of Stephensons in the Hull area. My rellie that came to Canada was a Wm (born Doncaster 1814) .. he left one brother in England, Henry Stephenson who died at the village of Branton in Cantley parish (just E of Doncaster) in 1882.

 My on going search is if these two brothers were any relation to any East Riding Yorks Stephensons. But thanks for the stone offer. My William is found at Cottingham in the 1841 census .. and at Stoneferry (just E of Cottingham) in the 1851 census.

Hi there, My paternal ancestor in Hull was my great grandfather, William Gage, sometimes spelt Geadge, b. 1826. He moved to Hull with his family from Little Ellingham, Norfolk, via Seaton, Yorks., in 1851. He remained in Hull at various locations with his family until he died in 1898. I have not been able to find his burial place nor that of his wife Maria, nee Hall(s) b. 1831, d. 1913. William at the time of his death lived in Sculcoates as also did his wife on her death.

George Wright doesn't appear on the Brian Langley's database 'Lost Trawlermen of Hull', There is a George Wright but he was 24 when he perished in 1919.

Hi Lynda
There's the death of a Joseph Lawrence recorded on Freebmd aged 50 in Hull June quarter 1886 vol 9d page 144. Coud be yours?

Hi listers.... I'm interested in JOSEPH LAWRENCE - the 1881 census shows him and his youngest daughter Emily Gertrude as being in the Alanby Road poorhouse. I live in NZ so it's nigh on improssible for me to obtain any records easily so if anyone is abkle to do any lookups in local newspapers for me to help me locate any details, I'd be very grateful... I'm guessing that he would have died / been buried in the area but as yet haven't been able to lcoate any death details but if anyone is out and about and spots any headstone relating to any Lawrences, I'd be very interested to try and follow up.....

Cheers! Lynda, Christchurchm NZ

I don't know a lot about my East Riding connection. My Dad, his father and mother and many generations on his Dad's side are from the West Riding, but I found my Mum has an East Riding connection!
My 3greats-grandmother was Ann SKINN b. 26 Aug 1811in Swanland, she married 3greats-grandfather William HADLEY who was from Staffordshire, they married in 1835 in Staffordshire. Ann's father is Robert and mother Ann - but I don't have a marriage for them. There are two other children I know of; Mary b. 1817 in North Ferriby, and William baptised in 1820 in Swanland. I know a little about William SKINN's children, but very little of the SKINN family other than that. Any bells ringing?
