Hello ...My name is Thomas Wright (Tom) born in a little market town in Lancashire, still living there, I have always been interested in where my Parents came from and where my Grandparents were born and lived what work they did and so on.
I thought I had some idea of my mother’s side and as for my father well very little at all, it was a subject that was never spoke off and it was the same for my wife, very few people spoke of their past, Thankfully we now know more because of records
and census`s now available on the internet, how things have changed over the years.
It was to my surprise to find out the origins of my parents who came from Yorkshire Mum from Starbotton with kettlewell and Dad Stockton, Durham But his Grandparents came from Campsall In Yorkshire where else... Dad thought that he was a Jodie because he was born in Stockton, Durham but not so, has he was Born while Granddad and Grandma were looking for work and some where to settle and bring up there family.
As for my wife`s parents well...... Her mother comes from a long line of greens in Chippenham, Newmarket,Cambridgeshire ,and not forgetting the male side of Haworth`s all from Haslingden,Lancashire and lots of them ....
Now on to my wife's Dad the name Barnes goes back to around the 1700 so far and all in the same town of Haslingden,Lancashire
