He's mine. I have this weekend been in contact with
Stephen Kilburn about the same Hemingway/Kilburn link.

This is what I believe to be Williams' line.
(I had noted a 1640 Abraham Hemingway/ Anne Holdworth marriage, and
Stephen mentioned the possibility of a link to my Hemingways. Previously I
ommitted it from my line, but he could be the father of the following

etc., etc.,

I have been wondering when someone would pick up on this enclave of early
Mirfield Hemingways.
The majority of them, in my line, appear to have been hewers/ miners
(either of coal or in the stone quarry), and judging by the number of them
who took up the occupation it was a family tradition. The alternate
occupation was weaving, but few of my Hemingways were employed in that

My father still lives in Mirfield
