My father was Alec Lancaster born 1901. Son of George Lancaster and Selena Waldron. George was a shepherd. This ties in with his fathers occupation, sheep- bell maker from Great Cheverall in Wiltshire. This last item has come from the historian of Great Cheverall, who also supplied the address. 121 High Street Great Cheverall (l850,s) If you think that this fits your family please contact me.

My tree shows a cousin - Amy Laura Askew (or Asque) marrying George Sydney Lancaster (also shown as Sydney George) in 1908 in Luton. He was born in Luton in 1886, she was born in Ravensden in 1889, and they had a son Frederick Sydney George Luton in 1908/9, also born in Luton. If any of this sounds familiar and you think you can add to my tree, or that I might be able to help with your tree, please contact me. Thanks.

We beleive that he was born between 1920-1924. He was in the Army during WWII and he was stationed at Camp San Luis Obispo in 1944 and 1945.

I know this will sound wierd but I live in South carolina and I have a lancaster family grave yard on my property. I have spoke with numerous people from the family. They are not sure were they came from other than being told that grandfather 5 generations back came to the us as endentured servant to they believe the english.I have tombstones going back to 1774 which means that the person belonging to the oldest tombstone was born closer to 1700. The town I live in was named after a daught of a lancaster and his 2nd wife. If any of this could possibly be helpful to anyone please let me know. I would love to know more of the families history for the turists who frequent the graveyard.

Hi everyone, just wanted to share a wonderful result from a post I made on this site a year ago! My Father, Richard Grant Lancaster from Muncie, Indiana had a half sister (I didn't know his father had remarried) and her daughter got hold of me thru this site. I now have pics of my dad from his childhood that i had never seen, and her Mom has pics of him as an adult she had never seen. Our families lost touch somewhere along the line and it's amazing to share what we have all found in our search for our roots. So far we have determined our shared Ancestor was an indentured servant who came to Virginia USA from England. Still trying to get past that info and find the village or town they were from. So thank you for this site!

We are looking for male Finney's from England to participate in YDNA testing in the Finney DNA Project hosted by Family Tree DNA. So far we have identified 8 distinct Finney lineages with 3 of them having origins in England. 1)Thomas Finney b.1770 Eckington, Derby and d. 1865 - A Finney from this lineage matched YDNA with a Finney living in India whose ancestors left England in the 1600's to work for the East Indian Trading Co. 2) Mother Finney arrived in Plymouth in the American Colonies abt 1630 - this Finney lineage is descended from the Finney's at Nottinghamshire 3)A Finney lineage in Virginia appears to have English origins. This is the lineage of John Finney and Elizabeth Ward. If you would like more information on how to join our project please contact me at Gerald Finney Finney DNA Project Admin

My maternal grandfather John Lancaster was a 50 year old widower when he married Minnie Florence Bohay in 1917. His residence 112 Vauxhall Walk is I think the Black Dog Pub which would tie in with him being a publican. His father was also John Lancaster, cotton manufacturer. John and Minnie had three children Robert, Elizabeth and Vera (my mother). I would love to find out what happened to my uncle and aunt.

She was adopted and given the name Mattie Lancaster at birth and was born on June 24, 1944 at City Hospital, borough of Manhattan,N.Y. Hospital was located on Roosevelt Island. At the time she was born she had 3 half siblings , male age 4, female age 3 and female age 1. The 1 yr old was also placed for adoption and by 1949 the birth mother had 2 more boys that were also Matties half brothers.

Hello, I noticed that you had an Edward Beedles in your family tree who dies in Bolton, in 1883. I am trying to track down what happened to an Edward Beadles / Beedles who married my gr. grandfathers' sister Mary Ann Vicars / Vickers in 1883, Bolton. She had two children with him but then married someone else in 1892. I'm not sure if she divorced Ed Beedles. Can't find any other records of him. Do you know why your Ed Beedles went to Bolton? It seems the rest of the Beadles / Beedles stayed in Wales.

Any information would be gratefully received. Thanks

I wondered whether the English candle manufacturer and benevolent employer, Benjamin Lancaster of London and Merseyside, was the same man who founded St. Peter's nursing sisterhood. He was. He was also, in 1850-51, the first owner of Rural Section 62 in Christchurch, New Zealand. Part of this land was purchased as a sports ground in 1880. It became famous for its rugby and cricket tests till devastated by the 22 February 2011 earthquake. Benjamin Lancaster lived from 1801-87. He married, in 1851, Rosamira Bellairs, whose uncle, Sir William Bellairs, was put forward as head of the Canterbury Settlement. Bellairs pulled out when the association could not immediately get his knighthood turned into a baronetcy. Benjamin was a more faithful friend of the Canterbury Settlement. Presumably, his land, just outside the Central Business District, was farmland till part of it was bought for a sports ground. Benjamin still owned land in Christchurch at the time of his death. Rosamira, 54, died in 1874. Benjamin retired to Bournemouth and was living there when he sold the land for the park. The men who handled the sale locally were prominent figures in real estate, business and politics, Richard Harman and Edward Stevens.

I am a librarian in Christchurch, New Zealand. Lancaster Park, Christchurch, is a home for national and international cricket and rugby - or was till the 22 February earthquake. Lancaster Park was named after Benjamin Lancaster of Bournemouth, England. He purchased Rural Section 62, 50 acres, from the Canterbury Association, in 1850, and sold 10 acres for the park, through his Christchurch agents, Richard Harman and E. C. J. Stevens, in 1880. Benjamin Lancaster of Bournemouth was the man who, in 1861, had set up St. Peter's Anglican Sisterhood so that parients at St. George's Hospital, London, could find people who would care for them in their convalescence. St. Peter's Sisterhood's website says that Benjamin Lancaster was a businessman. It does not say how he made his money. Was he the same Benjamin Lancaster who, with William Wilson, established the Price's candles business, in London, in 1830? Alternately, were there two prosperous Victorian businessmen, in England, called Benjamin Lancaster? Richard L N Greenaway

My name is Alan Lancaster. I originate from Rochdale. However, many of my earlier descendants originate from Yorkshire. My dad and granddad both called Joseph also originated from Rochdale. But my great granddad William Lancaster (1879 - 1936) came from Stanningley, Wakefield. My 2 x great granddad was Joseph Lancaster (1843 - 1869) came from Bradford. My 3 x great granddad William Lancaster (1816 - 1883) came from Bradford and my 4 x great granddad Robert Lancaster (born abt 1761) possibly came from Kirby Moorside and was a Coachman. Does anyone have a connection with these people? If so please get in touch.

My Grandfather's name was John Lancaster Brown, and I have discovered the Lancaster connection and think he is likely one of your family. My grandfather's mother was Mary Capsticks, whom we believe may have been illegitimately born and unofficially adopted and brought up by a John Lancaster. In the 1841 census and also 1851 census for the Wetherby area of Cumberland, my Mary Capsticks (born about 1835) is living in the household of John Lancaster and is designated a 'servant'. Is this John Lancaster in fact 'yours'? If so, would you know anything of the relationship with Mary Capsticks; and does he or his wife have any Capsticks genealogy? Many thanks, David.

I am looking for information on a George Lancaster or possibly Allencaster who was in Hawaii around the year 1872. He was the biological father of my Great Grandfather Samuel Keliinoi born in April 1873 to Emily Keliimahiai Keliinoi in Maui, Hawaii. I don't have much information about him as back then this was not something family discussed when children were born outside of the marriage. I know that he was from England possibly Liverpool and that he may have been a sailor or merchant aboard an English vessel. He may or may not have had knowledge of the child. Any information you could provide would be helpful.

I'm very curious to know my background and just saw for the 1st time the Lancaster Crest. All I know is my grandfather Walter Lancaster had a brother Harry or Harold?? and their father was named Walter Lancaster out of Florida where he was a Porter on the Silver Streak Train from Florida to New York and then my grandfather Walter II settled in New York. My dad Martin Lancaster Sr was born in the Bronx.Please contact if we are related. I would love to know all my family. I'm assuming I'm part of the family that left England to Barbado's to Florida.

R.E Finney family: I am the adopted son of Ronald Finney and Daphne Joan Smith I was adopted in 1957 as babe in arms. As a young child I vaguely remember visiting an elderly couple in Worcestershire they lived in a small village that began with the letter H. I remember them telling me of a meteor sighting some years before at a local country house. I recall they kept bantam chickens. Could the elderly gentlemans name been Jack? I have called my son Jack Tor Peregrine Finney. My sister Kathryn (true blood line)has three children Grace, George and Henry. I hope some one can shed some light on this. Cheers R Finney

I am searching for info regarding JOHN LANCASTER (b 1895) ROBERT SMITH LANCASTER (b 1900) and CHARLES LANCASTER (1908-1945) all from Atherton, Lancs, UK. Their parents are MARK LANCASTER and ELLEN SMITH, there are probably other children I don't know about. My grandfather was James William Lancaster, second son of Mark and Ellen. He and my grandmother migrated to NZ in 1924, they separated shortly after and all contact with our English Lancaster relatives was lost. Any info appreciated even if you are not sure it is relevant. A seemingly tiny bit of info could be the breakthrough I'm looking for!

I'm trying to find more about my ancester Crossdale Lancaster, born 1799 to William & Mary Lancaster of Blackburn. He was also known in later censuses as Charles Lancaster. His father was said to be a cotton sizer. He went to India, where his daughter Eliza (my great, great grandmother) was born. They came back to England, I think because of the Indian mutiny, and settled in Somerset in a large house divided into two. He was a pensioner. What I most want to know is how the son of a Blackburn cotton worker came to be in India; but any information about the family/cotton industry. Thanks

William LANCASTER / William Frederick HAWKINS was born 1820 at Wangford, Southwold, Suffolk. His parents are believed to have been Thomas HAWKINS (a publican) and Elizabeth LINGWOOD (b. ca. 1787, Halesworth / Chediston, Suffolk). The family appear to have moved from Suffolk to Wells-next-the Sea by 1838 and then to London by 1841. William Frederrick HAWKINS married Elizabeth ASHMEAD (b. Wells-next-the-Sea) at St Giles Cripplegate, London. William Frederick HAWKINS (b. 1820) changed his name to William LANCASTER in the 1840s (why?) and the family ended up in Ipswich, Suffolk. Who are William LANCASTER (b. ca. 1800, Southwark) and Elizabeth LANCASTER (b. ca. 1789, Halesworth) in Ipswich in 1851? Are these the mother and step-father of William Frederick HAWKINS / LANCASTER?

Any information to help solve family mystery greatly received, Louise

I believe my branch of the Lancaster family originated in Garsdale and Patterdale, villages near Kendall, Cumbria, in the 1750s.

But my Great-Grandfather, Willam Handley Lancaster was originally baptised at Portsmouth in 1809.

Does anyone know of other members of this branch of the family?

Also, does anyone know of a John Lancaster, born in East India about 1810 (British Citizen)and living with Catherine Lancaster (my great-grand-mother) in Barking, Essex, UK at the 1841 and 1851 census?

Great website. I found it by accident. I am looking for a Richard Alva Lancaster born about 1848 in Tennessee. I think his father was William G. Lancaster. Richard married Mary Breeding. Richard seems to have disappeared as I can not find him in the census anywhere after 1880. I am told that his son, Nello recieved some papers from England about property owned there but this is just word of mouth. Does any of this tie in with anyone else's research.

I noticed today you had a Tyson family as publicans of the Griffin Inn in Broughton in Furness. My G Grandfather (Walker) was a publican in Broughton. Listed in 1901 census as Griffin Street. Not sure at the time if that was their home address or address of the Pub? Do you have any info on the Griffin Inn. Just an interesting possibility I am looking at.
Many thanks.

We need more participants in the Lancaster DNA surname project. It is run by Lancasters, for Lancasters, and aims to (1) break through, or confirm, doubtful paper trails (2) confirm which Lancasters are anciently linked, or not, and - eventually - which might in fact correspond to any of the few Lancaster families whose medieval genealogy can be studied.

(For example the de Lancastre Barons of Kendall, the de Lancastres of Iberia who descend from the Capetian kings of France, and perhaps some early burgesses and land owners in various parts of Britain.)

Contact me if you're interested!

My Grandmother was Mary Alice Sowerbutts who married George Francis Airey. Her Parents were Albert Edward Sowerbutts who married Hannah Bertram b 1873 circa. Her parents were as you know Thomas Bertram and Mary Rigg. So i guess you can say I am missing branch of the Lancaster Tree.
I have a genes reunited site and you can contact me on the email address above.

Came across your site whilst looking for something else entirely! You list Lucy Hannah Swindlehurst as marrying John Postlethwaite. I can tell you that Lucy' father Marmaduke Swindlehurst married Maragert Ellwood in Melling August 16th 1851. They had 10 (known) children and Lucy was the 10th born August 10th 1872 in Docker.
Marmaduke her father (twin of Henry Swindlehurst) farmed at Gunnerthwaite after the death of his father James in 1851 when the farm was 159 acres. By the 1861 census the acreage was 170 employing two men and one girl. At the time of the 1871 census Marmaduke had moved to Docker 225 acres and he was still there in 1881 when the acreage had increased to 240.
His name is on the upstream central panel of Keer Bridge in the following inscription:
Newton with Docker

Although I realize this is the UK faction of our family tree, I know my search will ultimately take me here. I run into a blank wall every time I try finding out about my Dad's ancestry. Perhaps some one of you holds a key. Dad was Charles Maxwell Lancaster, professor of languages at Vanderbilt University, Rhodes Scholar studying at Balliol College in the '30s, and all around linguist and literary expert. The only child of Charles Edward Lancaster (1 of 4/5 siblings, no names known) and Louise Silliman of York Alabama (her family migrated from South Carolina)

Very interesting and useful site. I have been tracing my family history from my grandfather William Lancaster who was born in Litchfield, Hampshire in 1867. Sofar I have not established who his mother and father were as there is no birth certificate available. I know his grandfather was John Lancaster as this is detailed on the return for the 1871 and 1881. They were living in Village Road, Litchfield. The male members of the family were mainly farm workers and were living in the village from the late 1700's.

Hi, I found you had some Rileys and Procters in your family tree and hoped they'd mesh - apparently not! I have a Ruth Procter, possibly about a similar age to your Alice Ann. My Ruth married Samuel (or Joseph) Riley and had a daughter Elizabeth born 1864 in Derby. Most other lines in my family moved around, so perhaps your Alice Ann is a younger sister to my Ruth. Either way, we don't know their parents! Lets hope something comes to light!

Great site, but no connections yet! In my tree, Anna Maria Lancaster and brother Nathaniel (named after their father, Rev. Nathaniel Lancaster - rector of Stanford Rivers, Essex, England) were both born in Stanford Rivers but I have no dates. Anna married Rev. Thomas Wettenhall in 1739-1740 and Nathaniel married Ann Loyd in 1761 - both in Stanford Rivers. Any info on this family would be much appreciated.

Im trying to work out my family tree on the Lancaster side as I have so little knowledge. My mother is Janet lancaster, born in 1944, she was raised in an Orphanage as was her Brother John with the sisters of nazareth in Southampton(boys) and Portsmouth(girls). Thier father was Ronald James Lancaster, thought to have worked on the railways in Southampton, had 3 brothers (no details or dates for them). he lived in Botley/Hedgend area of Southampton) His 1st wife was Kathleen/Jaquelene O'Keefe, originally from Cork, Ireland. Again no dates on these. She died around 1954 from TB in nazareth house. Ronald died about 15 years ago. |He married a second time shortly afer his first wifes death and they had a daughter Christine who would be around 50-55 yrs old now. We have no idea of family before then, no photos etc. Any info would be gratefully recieved. many thanks.

I will have to get my dad to check the site out. He is a Lancaster from Rochdale/Norden area of Lancashire. I know his grandfather played Rugby Union for Lancashire (my dad owned his cap at one point!). I would like to learn more about the Lancaster's from that area, but living over here in Seattle its hard to get much information.

Thanks for the great resource. Perhaps with my dad's knowledge of his family history we can use the site to piece a tree together.

Cheers! Rich

Hello a great site to find. My family on my fathers side are also LANCASTERS. Whether there is any connection I don't know the earliest LANCASTER that I can trace in my family is WILLIAM LANCASTER born about 1820 and married to ELIZABETH ASHMEAD of WELLS NEXT THE SEA NORFOLK. Their son FREDERICK LANCASTER was born 1857 at IPSWICH SUFFOLK.
WILLIAM I believe may have come from MIDDLESEX, that is all that I can find out so far if anyone can supply another link back I would be grateful.

I will look at your information. I have traced my GG and GGGrandfather to England. They were James Henry Postlethwaite and his son James.

Happy to share information with you if it is helpful.

Great to find a connection. Suprisingly it seems a common name, and I thought it would be easy.
14 May 2002
I have just begun the search for the Postlethwaite clan. Agnes Jane Postlethwaite (Matthews) was my great grandmother. Her father was Thomas Postlethwaite and mother Margaret Ann Atkinson. This is the first site I have found with the Postlethwaite. Hooray! Hopefully, I can connect the dots on this line.

Thank you very much for putting the 1881 Census on your site. I have found five of our Lancaster ancestors on the first try! Will tell my cousins about your great job and have them check out the Census. Our Lancasters were in Buckinghamshire--Wycombe, oldest known are Joseph (1785-1851) and Harriet {Weyman} (1788-1847) Lancaster.

Hi Jane
Have been looking at your tree for a couple of months now without realising it was only part of your site! DOH!

You've done a great job on it especially the '81 transcripts.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes

(Yet another distant cousin this time from the Lancaster line!)

Hello second cousin once removed! I see you've done like me and grafted a new branch onto the family tree.

I'd like to put the link on my genealogy page. Let me know one way or the other.

Got to go back and fix some of those marriages, etc and get the new branch in shape.

Being #1, I'm glad to make a lonely WebMaster a little happier. Greetings from the Great White North. It is currently -18°C and I'm sitting here pleased as punch that there are more Finney's on the Web.

You've put a lot of work into this site, keep it up. It sure would be interesting if there is a family connection through John B Finney &
