Kate Gledhill's family tree

(with separate website)

Ditto. A blockbuster of a tree!
Twenty three generations of Gledhills in total, with several lines of descendants, from Halifax, Bradford, Thornbury, Wakefield and Calverley, Yorkshire, including the Amblerthorn Smithy in Queensbury, Halifax,  the last three generations being James Gledhill and his descendants in Riegelsville, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

    The above four trees are fascinating.   Jay, Denise, Duncan and Kate's husband Jim are descendants of Richard and William of Barkisland whose chart is held by the College of Arms London and reproduced on this website

Duncan Mitchell's second family tree

Duncan's second tree is the Little Even offshoot of the main Barkisland Gledhill family (see Jay's, Denise's and Duncan's trees above).  This second tree is of the descendants of Robert Gledhill who died in Little Even, Barkisland, in the 1400s.  The two trees are connected by the marriage of Thomas Hanson and Janet Gledhill -
