Genealogy of the
Sources: My grandfather was John
Robert Barmby. Information on his ancestors came to me originally
from notes made by Eva Clark for an uncle. This information was then
researched by Harry Nicholson to give a family tree. Information
was added from the Duggleby
, the Barmby
Rootsweb, the Driffield
forum (Barmby and Coultas contributors), the Barmby
Rootsweb forum and especially from Hazel Burt, the Bygod
site, and other sources. Information had been independently
collected by Tina Barmby and we found we had no mismatches except the
Nep/Knipe name. A conversation with Cristine Richards (a niece of Eva
Clark) was also helpful.
Four Barmby brothers came to Canada from the Driffield area of
Yorkshire around the turn of the century: John Robert (my
grandfather), Thomas, Fredrick (Jim Barmby's grandfather) and Jesse.
Jesse died in WW1. The other three farmed in or near the
Milestone/Lang area of Saskatchewan, along the SooLine. John and Tom
were the original homesteaders in that area (#s 1 and 2 in the
records). John married Sophia England, Fred married Esther Dixon and
both had families. Tom remained unmarried.
other siblings of these brothers were:
Violet, who had two
daughters Eva and Ethel, both childless
Charles, who had a
daughter Ruby (Ruby married and had children)
James Coultas, who
had one son who died in infancy.
Mary who remained single and
Sarah Jane who married and had children Wilfred
(Wilfred married but it is not known if he had children), Jeffrey and
Mabel (Jeffrey and Mabel were childless).
Thus the cousins in
this branch of the family are the decendants of John Robert and Fred
Barmby, of Ruby Peirson, and of Wilfred Leadill if he had any.
brother's parents were Thomas Barmby and Jane Coultas of Thwing.
Their ancestors appear to have lived in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
The surnames which have been linked to this family are: Barmby,
Beilby, Botham, Bygod, Clifford, Coale, Coultas, Dalby, Duggleby,
Exelby, Forge, Hill, Hurd, Johnson, Mallory, Nep or Knipe, Pattison,
Putsey, Raper, Smallwood, Stephenson, Taylor, Thorley, Tindall,
Vickerman, Watson, Wilson, Yates, Young. Most of these families do
not have long histories; they are fairly ordinary East Yorkshire
families. The Duggleby and Bygod lines are more extensive and less
ordinary but still rooted in East Yorkshire. Below is the start of
the tree; see Family
Tree for the earlier generations.
