I am looking for any info on the Irelands from Wold Newton, Yorkshire. I am a decendent of John Ireland 1785 and Mary Hunter 1786 who had 5 children one of which was George Hunter 1821 from Wold Newton. I understand that Mary Hunter was John's 3rd wife. His 1st I believe was Mary Sawden and his 2nd was Susannah Foster both of Wold Newton.
I also have had info that John's parents were another John Ireland 1763. Apparently his parents Richard and Jane (Ward) owned the pub in Wold Newton (The Red Lion)
John Ireland 1783 I believe also had another son, Michael 1819 who I think went to Canada and his children to Australia.
All of the above is unproved and I would love to hear from anyone who can verify or disprove
