  • Notes 
    • (Research):Ian Brooksbank 2014
      I am keen to find more about George Brooksbank (born 1824) and his father Matthew Brooksbank (born 1794) and prove the line from George through to me.
      George had two partners:
      -- Caroline Turner whom he married
      -- Ellen Mitchell whom he did not marry.
      I am a descendant of the Mitchell partnership. George's first son to Ellen Mitchell was Harry Mitchell Brooksbank.when Harry was born in 1869 Ellen was just 16 and the house maid of George and Caroline.
      In the census of 1891 Ellen is a widow and in 1881 George is listed. Harry is the witness to the death and I am confident Harry is my great great uncle. Their second son Arthur Mitchell Brooksbank is my great grandfather.
