The Northern England part of the site is for information regarding the ancestry of my Maternal Grandmother Rose May Ingham (1930-1980), whose brief tree to her Grandparents is shown below. It is worth mentioning that my mother knows little of her mother’s ancestry so for this branch the majority of the information has been gathered solely via historical documents.
INGHAM – although born in Northumberland my Grandmother’s family goes back to the Lancashire/Yorkshire border area of Heptonstall and Todmorden to a John & Mary Ingham, both born circa. 1781.
PATTIE – the Pattie family seem to have originated in Northumberland and all the information I have on this family is within this county. This part of the tree goes back to my 4 * Great Grandparents James & Jane Pattie.
BERRY – the Berry family are from Lancashire and have so far been traced back to John Berry (1774-c1858) and Mary Dilworth (1778-1868) in Roeburndale area.
SIMPSON – the Simpson’s appear to have originated like the Pattie’s in Northumberland. This line goes back to a Thomas Simpson born most likely in the 1790s.
