Dear Heather,I am pretty sure that our Thomas Frankland is closely related to your Franklands .Though I haven't yet found it in the Parish records for Brafferton because ther is a gap after 1811, Thomas John's father Thomas though living most if not all of his life ain asenby variously according to censuses as a Wright and later master Carpenter with apprentices, was born in Brafferton in 1812 and was probably a son of John Frankland described as a Wright or carpenter born Helperby . In the Parish records that I am currently reading for Brafferton I have noted other children of John's i. e. daughters ?Hanna baptised Helperby Mar 24 1799;Mary of Helperby 29th Jan.1796;John baptised Helperby Nov.291803;Jane, Brafferton 8 Nov 1807;Ann, Brafferton born Mar 10, baptised 12 Mar 1810. While searching censuses for Asenby where Thomas was atleast till 1861 ,I found other Franklands in the nearby town of KIrkby Malzeard and other villages such as Melmerby and e.g.Robert Frankland in Cundale born in Helperby in 1851 a Master carpenter aged 46 and so born 1805 and perhaps another son of John and Jane.The records are difficult to read in parts .John's wife may be Jane(who?)but I have notyet found his marriage. Thomas born Helperby 1812 is my husband Don's 2x Gt Grandfather .Don and I leave on Mar 23 for a visit to the U.K. and are planning to spend some time in mid June in that part of Yorkshire not only because it is beautiful but to further our family history.We would love to know which of John and Jane's children your line is descended from. Perhaps we might be able to meet up with one or more members of your line in the Helperby pub if anyone is interested to?. our email is firstname.lastname@example.org
