Subject: [YORKSGEN] Fw: 1841 census lookup - RIDER/RYDER
Date: Sat, 29 Dec 2007 11:15:23 -0000
Many thanks to Anne, David and Margaret for their help in finding [possibly]
my family in the 1841 census. More delving to do, to fully confirm that they
do, in fact "belong to me". They weren't where I expected them to be!
Best wishes to one and all,
Mel TOWLER, Harrogate, North Yorkshire
TOWLER - Leeds, Sandal Magna, Barwick in Elmet, Cowthorpe
CARISS - Leeds, Easingwold, Yearsley
RYDER/RIDER - Leeds, Bradford, Idle
LAWSON - Leeds, Settrington

> William RIDER married Alice FEATHER at St Wilfrid's, Calverley in 1807. He

> William and Alice RIDER/RYDER lived and died in the Calverley/Idle area.
> William died in 1850, Alice died in 1852 and James, one of their sons,
> died in 1856 aged 40. James didn't marry and I would expect the 3 of them
