I am currently in UK at the moment from Australia. I am very interested
to know of you whether i can get a copy or look at this book titled
below while i am here. I appreciate that only 60 copies were printed
and that to get a hold of one of these may not be possible but if you could
get back to me in regards to its availability and the likelihood of getting
a copy this would be invaluable to me.
I am in England for another three weeks and i am staying at the Seale
Hayne campus of the Plymouth University. The nearest town to here is Newton
Many thanks Katie

Please find 1851 Census [for
Hull and Beverley] as promised, sorry about delay. I will check other
entries for the 1851 for East Yorkshire on my next visit to the library
and will email them. If anyone wants me to look up individual
entries I will be happy to do so, only they will have to be patient as
I only manage to get there once a week.
Best wishes Sue C.

Hello Dr. Ille,
"Mary, the sole surviving daughter of William and Mary Ianson, married
William Cudworth, grocer and druggist, of Darlington, whose widow she remained
for over fifty years, and whose business she carried on for many years.
. . . What a pleasure it was to turn up this reference to my great-great-great-grandparents
Cudworth on your website and to open up another branch in my family's genealogy
and history. Hello, from Toronto, to all my newfound cousins (6th +/-)!
I have just started, after an interval of 10 years from my previous
small efforts, looking into the trees; what a difference the Internet has
made! A Cudworth history by Joseph J. Green, privately published in 1898
by the same firm that made the Ianson Family book transcribed on your website,
gave me a great head start on that line. PDF files from the book can be
accessed on my embryonic website at http://holdent.tripod.ca/
I am one of the sons of Helen Elizabeth Cudworth, one of the four daughters
of William Oswald Cudworth at whom Green's pedigree chart ends.
Your website is a model of organisation and good taste and I will be
perusing it further with great interest. With your permission, I would
like to link to it.

Thought this might be of interest to those researching I'ansons particularly
those related to Leonard who married Mary Heslop. Robert I'anson
living in Spencer Street, Hull in 1881 called one of his sons Laurence
Heslop I'Anson and one of his sons George Leonard (born Dec 1869 Hull 9d),
is this just coincidence or could it be that this family are linked to
Leonard and Mary Heslop. I believe Leonard had one son named Robert
and it is possible that he too had a son called Robert. Hope this
makes sense. I am still trying to verify whether I link into this
Another interesting fact, there were three girls possibly triplets born
in Hull in 1869 (Sept) Anne Ianson, Mary Ianson and Sarah Ianson ( 9d 123).
Other births found that may be of interest to someone out there.
Mary Ann Sculcoates June 1868
Robert Catherington Dec 1868
Walter Bury March 1869
Francis Darlington June 1869
Richard Darlington June 1869
John William Sculcoates Mar 1870
Mary Ann Hull
Francis Margaret Dec 1870
N.B. According to the family tree, looked at Leonard and Mary Heslop
and they did have a son called Robert and according to the information
he died after 1881. The Robert living in Spencer Street, also died
between 1881 and 1891, coincidence!!!

The I'Anson Cup cricket competition is celebrating its centenary this
year. The cup was donated by Edward Blakeway I'Anson of Grayshott, Hampshire,
at that village's cricket club dinner in November 1900. It is the oldest
village cricket league in the country in continuous existence.
E.B. I'Anson was the elder son of Edward I'Anson JP, and was born in
London and educated at Cheltenham College and Cambridge University. He
followed his father's profession and was architect and surveyor to St Bartholomew's
Hospital in London, and was responsible for much notable work in London,
as well as being architect for hospitals and convalescent homes around
His family connection in Grayshott began in 1861 when his father bought
an estate there. He lived in London, where his sister kept house for him
(he was unmarried) and spent his weekends in Grayshott.
I would be delighted to know if he can be fitted into your I'Anson family
Secretary, I'Anson Cup cricket competition.

The day before yesterday, I was spending time on the Internet, when
I decided for no other reason than curiousity to enter my surname into
the Search facility of Yahoo . . . I came across the I'Anson International
website, which I found fascinating but, looking at the various family trees,
I was unable to find any connection to my own line. However, I was able
to make a connection in Tom Hair's letter of Jan [7th]
The A.C I'Anson mentioned was my grandfather. He was a career
merchant seaman and, I believe, for much of his life was based in the Southampton
area. Unfortunately he died in 1959 when I was only one or two years old.
. . .
Over the years, I have met by chance two unrelated I'Ansons. One lives
in Sussex and the other in Perthshire. I did not see any reference to either
of them in anything mentioned in the site.
Regards and best wishes,
