If you have traced yourself back to here, you can go back still further in time:


You can now explore Farndales between 1150 and 1500 to whom we cannot directly trace our lineage, but who are no doubt our ancestors or those who interacted with them.


You can then go back even further to the history of the region prior to 1150.




In time I will see if I can research more information about Nicholas or at least about activities in Kirkleatham between 1512 to 1572.




St Cuthbert’s Church in the village of Kirkleatham was built in 1763 on the site of a much earlier church, thought to have dated from 800 AD. The site of the church is believed to have been used as a resting place for the body of St Cuthbert on its journey to Durham, his final resting place. The Turner Mausoleum, attached to the earlier church, was built in 1740, by the renowned architect James Gibbs. St Cuthbert’s Church is a Grade I listed building.


Our common ancestor


Although there are some educated guesses in linking Nicholas to his descendants, it seems a fair conclusion that Nicholas is the person to whom many Farndales today can directly trace their ancestry.

I believe that many Farndales today will be able to follow their lineage back to Nicholas. I believe that most Farndales will be able to link into the lineage chart below at some point.

Once you have established your ancestor somewhere in this line, you will then be able to trace yourself back to Nicholas.

Nicholas is my Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather.
