Your link to the ELWISS family Barkworth
Other families you are researching Siggs
Comments:
I noticed you have the Barkworth family of Rasen, Caistor etc and think I may be able to help you out with the identity of Charles Barkworth (1829)'s wife Henrietta. I believe she was Henrietta Siggs, born 3 Mar 1825, died Dec qtr 1912, who was daughter of John Siggs (1798-1874), a gamekeeper, and Sarah (dates unknown, died bef. 1834). John Siggs also had a son John, my direct ancestor, another two sons Henry William and Daniel and another girl, Sophia.

I have only recently broken through this brick wall myself and am happy to send you what information I have if it is useful.

Your link to the ELWISS family gggg-grandmother
Other families you are researching Wild
Comments:
I am currently researching my WILD forebears which appear to have settled in Awkley in the mid 1700's or earlier. Awkley is right on the Yorkshire-Nottinghamshire border, just to the southeast of Doncaster and about a mile from Finningley. It has been in both Nottingham and Yorkshire over the years

My ggg-grandfather was William Wild (b. ca. 1792) and his wife was Jane Reynold (b. 1793). They were married in 1816 in Finninley Parish, Nottinghamshire and all of their children were christened there as well. I am trying to identify William's father, and have come across one candidate also named William, b. abt. 1760 and married to a Sarah ELWESS (or Elevies or variants). They were married at Cantley, Yorkshire which is but a stone's throw from Doncaster or Awkley.

Anyone have this couple in their genealogy or who can tell me more about the Elwess family living in the vicinity of Doncaster, Yorkshire?

Hiya,

Currently pulling all the strands of Elwess geneology together. Would love to hear from anyone who is a descendent of an Elwess or otherwise spelt variant, as I am trying to join everyone up! Currently over 1800 on the tree, and growing. Send me an email!
