Canty Family Whitgift Goole UK
Posted by: Thomas Canty (ID *****1953) Date: September 01, 2012 at 18:51:24

Hello All:

My grandfather was born in Goole England and immigrated to Canada where he had my dad thus along came me the third to be called Thomas Canty.

I will be traveling to the Goole area in a little over a week and thought I would look some of the family up if at all possible. I do know that there are living relatives still in the area.

Some still live in an area called Anchor Point in Whitgift. i have also been told about a church to check out " Whitgift Church is approx 1/2 mile West of Anchor Row and is the marriage and burial place of your ancestors. Its other claim to fame is that its Church Clock is the only clock face in the world to show thirteen o'clock (XIII)! " I am thinking that this church should have some records. However, I cannot find a email address for them.

Any help that people can supply is greatly appreciated.
