My interests in Hull focus on the WAUD family. The earliest connection is the marriage in 1793 of John WAUD and Rachel BURGAN at Holy Trinity Church. Later generations remained in Hull though several - James Bergan Waud, James Arthur Waud and Thomas Henry Waud - came to Australia in 1883. Origins of the Wauds before this mention in Hull are as yet uncertain.

Another family branch lived in various places in the Holderness area. The VERNON family moved with the railways from Inverness, Scotland to Beswick (1848), Hedon (1854), Preston Gates (1856) and finally Ottringham (circa 1870). The parents died in Ottringham and descendants lived at Thorngumbald, Sunk Island, and other nearby villages. Associated surnames include CLOSE, TENNISON, CHADWICK, DUNN and JOHNSON.

Would welcome contact with anyone who has an interest in these families or who can assist with the origins of the Waud family.

My One Name Study (Duncalf and variants) has a large East Yorkshire connection in the 16th to 18th centuries. The earliest connection is with Urian Duncalf who lived at Otteringham and died there in 1598. His second wife was one of the Hildyard family and his executor had a bit of trouble with Sir Christopher over the will.

Second connection is with John Duncalf of Patrington who married Margaret Hall, the vicar's daughter in 1607. There is a plaque on the church wall commemorating John and his family with the Duncalf coat of arms on it.

John's descendants, a couple of Humphreys, Samuel and Edward moved to Hull and were aldermen. Samuel was the town clerk at one stage. One of the Humphreys has a memorial stone in the porch of Holy Trinity church. I have a photograph courtesy of Victor Markham's daughter.

I've been through the registers and lots of other interesting sources, including Dugdale, but if anyone comes across anything relating to this family I would be very pleased to hear of it.

I've just arrived back from a week in York at Yorksgen 2009. Tired but happy and with 30+ pages of parish register entries to input into my system. Very tired but very happy. Congrats on this new list.
