I have a Margaret Jackson who married Brian Hebden, born 1867. They had a daughter Ida, who married ? Farr. I have no other dates, but they lived in England, possibly Leeds area. Ida died within the last ten years at the age of nearly one hundred.

Am very sorry to say that Janet died suddenly in July 2005 She was the daughter of my late cousin Peter Hebden. We were working together on Hebdens and variants so do contact me with Hebden and variant queries. Some 20 families have been identified and more data is being added.

I am trying to establish the parentage (from afar - NZ) of Thomas HEPTON who married Jane WILFORD in Brompton by Northallerton on 11 Sep 1764. He was born c. 1741. and I have found 2 candidates, Michael Hepton of Stokesley or Leonard Hepton/Hebdon/etc. (? from Wakefield) whose son Thomas appears to have been baptised in Northallerton.

Thomas & Jane HEPTON were my great x 5 grandparents.

Can you shed any light on this problem?

Ever hopeful,

Auckland, NZ

Hi Karen,
Thomas bn 1741 was the son of Leonard +1777 who mar Mary Brewster 1734 at Northallerton. She also +1777.
Leonard bap 17aa Bagby (east of Thirsk) son of Timothy, there was another son Thomas bap 1706 bur 1707. A third son Timothy bap Northallerton son of Timothy (Timothy a rare name in Hs).
There is a will of Christopher H of Maltby Stainton (nr Middlesborough) proved 1720 made 1719 which mentions bros Timothy & Johas (sic). Cannot identify this Christopher at present. Many Christophers in Hebden families.
As you go back any Hepton/Hebdon will be from Hebden. Hepton occurs particularly in the E & NE of Yorkshire.
Thomas & Jane moved to Leeds where the family were in the plumbing&c trade but later generations were mantle manufacturers. A marriage to a Lawrence lady resulted in the the name Lawrence being included in the christian names of later family.
Two sons of Thomas & Jane. Thomas & William were clockmakers, William's family continuing with a branch settling in Wellingborough. The clocks command a premium.
Would like to know how you connect, you are welcome to e-mail direct to . You may like to look at and at .
The first was compiled by a daughter of a cousin who died suddenly in 2005; we cannot access it to amend it as no-one knows her password and Lycos have not responded to messages. Narratives of some 25 H families are included.
The second has info in chronological order from way back but we have a much bigger similar file in hand.
