My late first wife's mother Annie Paling (from Whitby, Yorks.) was descended from the Paling family of Weston. Her grandfather was Elijah Paling, carpenter and publican at Cowbit; he was the son of George Paling & Sarah (Elsom), farmers of Weston. George was the son of another George, also a farmer at Weston, and his wife Mary. We have yet to find conclusive evidence of George & Mary's marriage, and of George's parentage. If there is any member who knows anything of this family I would be interested to hear from them. I know that a certain other member is also descended from the same family and would be as thrilled as I to find out anything about the first George.
