Pawson 1700's to PresentLeeds - South Cave - Westchester Co. NY USA

William Pawson I am descended from a man named Robert Pawson who was born 18 Dec 1806 and baptized in South Cave, YKS, on 14 Jan 1807. Robert came to America in the late 1820's and settled in Westchester Co., NY. He always claimed he was from Leeds on official documents and to his American family.

Robert Pawson was the son of John & Mary Pawson. His proven siblings were: Mary (b. 14 Jun 1796); George (b. 13 May 1798); and James (b. 29 Dec 1802). All were baptized in South Cave.

Family tradition has it that another brother, William Pawson, was once mayor of Leeds. Indeed, a William Pawson served in that office in 1841.

I am seeking information that would either confirm or disporve this family link.

I am also looking for genealogical information on the ancestors of my Robert's father John and his mother Mary (whose maiden name is at present unknown), and colateral lines of descendants of his siblings.

Thank you.

Pawson 1750-1950Leeds, Guiseley, Wighill, Otley
Simon op den Brouw Moses Pawson had seven children baptised at St Peter's, Leeds, between 1784 and 1802. He lived on Black Bank, off the top of Marsh Lane. He possibly married Jane Thompson in Wighill in 1783. One of the witnesses there was a Pawson.
There are strong links with Bookbinding/printing and Woolsorting.

Peacock1900Holbeck Michael Peacock My Great Grandma lived in the Recreations, near Holbeck Moor. She was married to Tommy Peacock, they had 7 children, but I never heard any of them speak of their father. It would seem that Tommy Peacock appeared, married, and fathered 7 children, then died at an early age. I believe they where parishioners at St. Mathews church, Holbeck. Great Grandma died several yrs ago, age, I believe of 98.
