Large1850s-1870sLeedsTony Halstead
Have failed to trace my 2xGt Gndfther JOHN AUGUSTINE LARGE and his wife MARY nèe HEWITT on 1861 and 1871 censuses. Neither of these censuses seem to have ennumerated 34, 35 and 36 Duke Street which is where I believe some of the family (but maybe not John) were living. Have also failed to trace his death in the GRO indexes although Mary Large was widowed by the 1881 census, and resident in Manchester by then.

Leibrich1868-1870sLeeds Tony Halstead Charles Gustav Paul Leibrich, a tailor born in Germany, married Mary Ann Hewitt Large at St. Peter's, Leeds, in November 1868. His stated residence was 'Quarry Hill' and hers was 'Pleasant Row'. The birth certificate of their first-born, Arthur, in April `1870, gives an address 'Rheinhardt's Yard, Briggate', but on the 1871 census they were not there. I need to find the family on the Leeds 1871 census to establish Charles' place of origin in Germany. By the 1881 census they were in Manchester and only 'Germany' is stated.

Linley/Lindley1700-1900Far Headingley, Meanwood, Woodhouse, Horsforth, Pool, ?Briggate
John Lindley James Lindley (1860 Far Headingley)my g-gr-father, Thomas Lindley (1823 Meanwood) tailor, Thomas Lin(d)ley (1800 Woodhouse) tanner & later grocer, John Lin(d)ley (?chr. 29 Feb 1747-8 as John Lindale) paper maker, Thirstin Lindley/Linsley/Lindale of Briggate (1718) son of John Lindley of Briggate. I have reliably documented the line back to John Lindley,paper maker, except his birth and christening. The family of Thirstin L. in Briggate appear to change surnames between Lindley and Lindale, so I am interested in establishing whether John Lindley, paper make, is his son, and in identifying offshoots from the same Briggate group. The forename Thirstin is also subject to variation (Thurstan, Thurlestones etc).
