I\'m doing research for Calderdale Industrial Museum. Where did you get the image of the pack horse trails, created from the Yates and Jefferys maps? It\'s an image we might like to use in talking about how the textile and other industries developed in Calderdale. Is the image your copyright, or can you give me a source?

Great website by the way.

I keep popping back here. My late father was a colleague of the late Brian Midgley who used to tell him about the Elland Quarmby Feud. That\'s probably what I was searching for. I also used to come back for information on Elmet and am now trying to find out about Godwine of Huddersfield.

I am also intrigued about the Orm son of Gamal on Kirkdale sundial and the gamal mentioned in and around Huddersfield. Looking at the maps on the Domesday PASE site, I rather think it is.

My 3rd Great grandmother was Jane Midgley b 1811 in Heaton, Bradford. She married my 3rd GGF John Robinson 31 Dec 1828 In Bradford Cathedral. The only baptism I can find from that time is 3 Mar 1811 daughter of William Midgley woolsorter. I have plenty of info after their marriage, but nothing else from before. Any ideas? Thanks

My great-grandmother was Ellen Midgley, married to Charles Henry Metcalfe. She died when her children were young, after nursing a neighbour with typhoid. We believe she might have been a performer, possibly a singer or opera singer. They lived in Liverpool. Is there anyone who has information on her or our family?
