Is anyone doing family research on FRANCIS WILLIAM TOPHAM b. 1808, Leeds, Yorkshire d. cordova, Spain 1877. He was an artist. Also seeking info on his son FRANK WILLIAM WARWICK TOPHAM, b. London 1838, d. 1924. He was also an artist and married to HELEN LEMON, b ? d 1924, daughter of the first editor of Punch magazine. Francis William's father was RICHARD TOPHAM b. 1811 in Leeds, d. 1901+. He was a pawnbroker. A lot of the family were either pawnbrokers or engravers/printers in Leeds, so if anyone is doing research on ancestors who had those occupations in Leeds, please contact me. I am also seeking info on CHARLES TOPHAM, b. Leeds 1839, m. SARA J. READ. My husband is an artist who is descended from the Tophams. Thank you!
