Re: Paul KAYE (Holme/Holmfirth, Yorkshire)

In Reply to: Paul KAYE (Holme/Holmfirth, Yorkshire) by Claire Bates of 327

Paul Kaye was a son of John Kaye, clothier of Holme.

There was what appears to have been a long family of children of John Kaye. Assuming that this was indeed a single family the children were:

08/06/1735 Hannah
04/12/1736 James
10/12/1738 John
28/09/1740 David
30/04/1743 Catherine
23/05/1745 Joseph
21/06/1747 Mary
14/06/1749 Lucy
24/08/1751 Thomas
12/01/1754 Paul
03/07/1756 Margaret

All dates are baptismal dates.

Although the marriage of John Kay to Lydia Whitehead of Holme fits well with the baptism of the first child Lydia would have been 44 when the last was born. It's possible that Lydia may have died and John remarried. This possibility remains to be investigated.

I don't as yet have any information about John's origins. The Kaye family goes back a long way in local parishes and Kayes were living in Holme in the C17th but there is a gap, at least as far as the parish records go, for some decades before they reappear in the C18th although there does seem to have been under-recording in Almondbury parish.
