Re: Wensley of Wensleydale

In Reply to: Re: Wensley of Wensleydale by alec hird of 36

I am a Wensley living in Rishton, Lancashire, North-West England. Originally hailing from Colne, East-Lancashire on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border.
I have a older brother called Stephen (still living in Colne), and our father Kenneth Wensley (now deceased) lived most of his life in Colne.
There are a few Wensley's still living in Colne (relatives), and I have come across some information (not confirmed) of a Sir Stephen Wensley Knight of the Realm whom allegedley fought at Agincourt.
The name Wensley is not simply from Wensleydale, but more specific, from the village of Wensley, from which the dale is named.
Will look deeper to eke out more info and will post as when I have something new.
Best wishes
Glenn
