Some long time since I posted anything!Having had a battle with cancer I've now settled down to research again and I find my previous search was wrong!
My great grandfather's (Harton) parents were Thomas and Catherine Baxendale (nee Mawson). Thomas was born in 1831, Catherine in 1834 and were shown on 1871 census in Huddersfield and 1861 in Wath-on-Dearne wheere their first son John was born in that year. As well as John & Harton there was Joe Manson Baxendale and Lillian Baxendale children.
Anyone linked to any of the above or can go back from Thomas?
