Beswicks in Snainton and Brompton by Sawdon in Yorkshire

I am researching the family and ancestors of Betsy Beswick, born February 16, 1845 in Ganton, Yorkshire, England. The family was in Ganton for a short period of time. Betsey was married to Edward Newton, born 1/17/1834 in Allerston, Yorkshire. Betsey and Edward both died in Lee Township, Franklin Cty, Iowa.

Betsey's father was Samuel Beswick, born 2/2/1813 in Snainton, Yorkshire. He was married to Margaret Marshall born 4/25/1812 in Brompton by Sawdon, Yorkshire. Samuel's father was Richard and Dinah Beswick. We do not know Dinah's maiden name. Richard was born 1/14/1780 in Brompton by Sawdon, Yorkshire.

This is where the conjecture starts. I believe that Richard is the sone of Richard Beswick and Elizabeth Birdsall. Richard was born about 1748 and was a farmer in Brompton by Sawdon. There were two Richard Beswicks in this town at that time. However, the other Richard was a manson and this family did not follow that profession. All the above male descendents were farmers and joiners/wheelwrights.

If you have any interest in or information regarding this family, I would appreciate hearing from you. We have lots of information and are willing to share.

Thank you,
