I am not descended from the Jumples Ramsdens, but I went through their papers at the Archives in Halifax, Yorkshire while researching my own family. There was a brother who left yorkshire and disappeared ... presumed lost at sea. I did not see any reference to where he went, but the impression I had was that he had joined the navy. There was no reference to a family, and infact 10 years after his father died that son's portion of the estate was divided among the remaining heirs including the Ramsdens in Niagara Falls, Canada, so it would appear that his family was not aware of any family he might have had.

The Ramsdens remained at Jumples into the 20th century owning a large brewery in Halifax.

Please email me if you would like more information.
