Original research

This page presents some of the results of the researches I have carried out into my own family.

The families I am interested in include:
Barker from the East Riding of Yorkshire, especially Lund
Bean from Filey and later Scarborough
Blake from York, then Scarborough
Boyes from the East Riding of Yorkshire
Chew from the villages around Scarborough
Coomb[e]s from Worcester
Cunnington from Lincolnshire
Dobson from Bridlington, then Scarborough
Edginton from the Bampton area of Oxfordshire
Fancy from Dorset and latterly from Yorkshire
Hors[e]man from the North Riding of Yorkshire, latterly in Scarborough
Howes / Howse from Oxfordshire, then Fulham, then Scarborough
Mills from the Bampton area of Oxfordshire
Porter from London, then Yorkshire
Reeks from Dorset
Scruton from the East Riding of Yorkshire
Smith from Scarborough
Temple from the North Riding of Yorkshire

The following pages present a very small selection of the information I have accumulated, but they give some hints as to the leads I have been following:
