Let me know who is related to who from above as I feel sure they are related to the Chapel Allerton branch.
My tree is from Chapel Allerton in Leeds - where I believe your George born 1825 ish was the brother of my James born 11.7.1828 who was a quarryman like his father John b 9.6.1796 d 18.4.1861, their mother was Ann b19.12.1799 died 9.8.1835 - I have a family bible of James descendants and his parents- hence the exact dates, unfortunately it doesn't mention his brothers and sisters but going from the births at Chapel Allerton I presume your George is one of the brothers. I have a list of the brothers and sisters. Befor Chapel Allerton they lived in Halton Leeds. My grandfather Norman Rollisson was a cabinet-maker in Leeds in the 1920-50's.
Let me know how your tree is developing and how relevant the above is.
