The tree below, which was kindly provided for us by Janet Fawcett of Hunmanby, North Yorkshire, is especially interesting for me since Janet and I share the same ancestors from generation three upwards!

NOTES

Janet Fawcett’s notes:   The date of Jane Hoggarth’s death is not currently known.  Elijah Bell died (according to my father) in the chair at the barber’s shop, 424 Manchester Road, Bradford, WRY, on 23 October 1909.  His home was at 75 Tudor Street, Bradford, WRY.  An inquest was held on 26 October 1909.  My enquiries revealed that records from around that time are no longer in existence.

From the 1881 census, I know that the above list is in the correct order for the first six children of Elijah Bell & Jane Hoggarth. The others are the ones my father remembered, as ‘Aunt …’ or ‘Uncle’ so I cannot list them in birth order.  He may also have forgotten some too, so this is as close as I can get.  Also, I don’t know how many of these children survived to adulthood.

Rod’s note:   The two oldest generations were added by me, based upon information obtained from the research of Margaret Denham.
