Hello all, please note that i have been researching my family - Gatenby - they hail from yorkshire more specifically Egton and Whitby areas. Anyway my Great Grandfather was William Hodgson Gatenby born 1885 baptised Guisborough in Yorkshire- i have NO idea why he was given this middle name . i assume it was because there was a lady of unknown first name and last name of Hodgson married to Gatenby previously but my research has not found one.
If anyone has information on female Hodgson married to a Gatenby from this area please advise.
IN ADDITION> i think that you Hodgsons would enjoy looking at the following website, i relates to Egton in Yorkshire and the beginnings of the Hodgson name (along with others) in Egton Parish in Yorkshire. Please note that this document is over 220 pages long and therefore please do not print it entirely.
i hope its of help to someone, best regards
