|About Barker Hunter Family Tree
Welcome to my ever growing family tree
The main famliy lines are the OLDALES an old Sheffield family with strong farming ties to the Sheaf
Valley in the city. Joseph Oldale being the famous 'Squire of Beauchief'
The PARTRIDGE line comes from the villages of Thurning and Briston in Norfolk, John Hardy Partridge
moved to Sheffield with his family. A likely result of the massive expansion of the steel industry
which would have attracted people from far and wide.
The FERRIS and RICKS families as I recently discovered are again a farm working family from
Wiltshire, Frank Ferris making the journey north as did his brother Arthur.
The BARTON family are a Sheffield family with strong ties to the Silversmith trade. I need to do a
lot more research on this line.
The BARKER, HUNTER and many other lines RUDD, HOUSLEY, HEWITT, MAYSTONE
are works in progress

Thanks to the growing list of Oldales and Ricks that are helping me along the way, cheers guys.
