Finding Living Relatives – part 3

As I mentioned in part 2 of Finding Living Relatives, the modern social trend of not marrying in England, if at all, makes life difficult for the genealogist. In my database I have a number of Micklethwaite families where I have found 2 or more children born with the same mother’s maiden name, but so far I have been unable to locate a marriage. This means I don’t know who the father is, so I don’t know how they fit into the jigsaw. There are more such names where there is only one child, but I’ll leave that for another time. Here’s a list of mother’s name and location of the children’s birth registration.


  • Bolderson, Dewsbury
  • Broad, Barnsley
  • Brown, Liverpool
  • Fareed, Los Angles, California
  • Gill, Repton
  • Goldman, Sheffield
  • Hallsworth, Barnsley
  • Hanson, Barnsley
  • Jackson, Leicester or Bakewell
  • Jones, Barnsley
  • Leonard, Doncaster
  • Makinson, Huddersfield
  • Prest, Halifax or Huddersfield
  • Speck, Doncaster
  • Taylor, Barnsley
  • Whitehouse, Barnsley
  • Wilcock, Halifax

If you can help me sort out any of these families, I’d me most grateful.
