Hi George,Yes my family stems from the same source as that of your wife but I am not entirely sure how! John Br.1817-1880 ,son of William,fellmonger,was married in Beverley in 1840 to Eliza Marshall,dau of William Mar.gunsmith.John was a blacksmith of Hengate,Eliza was a servant of North Bar Without.Their children were William,Ann,George and John.They lived at Beverley Parks,Woodmansey and later at the blacksmith"s shop,Leconfield. George(1849-1915) continued the blacksmith trade there until his death.He married Esther Pape at Leconfield in 1874,the daughter of William Witty Pape,village shoemaker and Anna Maria Pape,village schoolmistress.Their children were Annie Maria who married a Dickins,farmer;Charles Herbert who married Agnes ? and who took on the business until he lost his leg in an accident:George William:John born in 1883:Frances Margaret 1886-1955,mother of Joyce,my mother:Louise Blanche 1890-1985,spinster of North Bar Without,Beverley and, finally,Elliza Ellen 1892-1972,spinster,who shared the same house. Your wife must be descended from John Brusby of the above family.I believe there is a farly recent relevant grave in Leconfield cemetery today. N.B.George left £487 in 1915.Best Wishes,John Carling.
