I am tracing my sister-in-law's family, and she descends from Ellis and Isabella Hird of Haworth. Ellis was born in Haworth in about 1781. Their children were:
Joseph, b. abt. 1816;
Squire (my sister-in-law's ancestor), b. abt. 1819 (Married Mary Wadsworth, b. abt. 1823, Haworth, dau of Jonas Wadsworth, b. 1796/1801, Haworth.);
James, b. abt. 1822;
Dinah, b. abt. 1826;
Samuel, b. abt. 1826;
Grace, b. abt. 1828;
John, b. abt. 1829;
Isabella, b. abt. 1832;
Zillah, b. abt. 1839 (She had a son, Ellis, b. 1859 and was the aunt of Julien Hird, b. abt. 1852).
Squire Hird and Mary Wadsworth had Matilda Hird, b. 1847, Haworth, who married William Spencer Gill, b. 1846, Idle/Windhill, Yorks.
Do you know of this branch of the family. It seems likely that Ellis is a brother of Benjamin, Robert and Dinah. Can you give me any more information?
