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.|

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).|
