Frances North Tasker

28 Feb

Ancestry had a free weekend to search UK records, so I did a little digging around on my UK lines.

I found some good stuff on Frances North Tasker. Frances was the daughter of William and Hannah North. She was born in 1827 in South Kirkby, Yorkshire, England. She married Thomas Tasker of the same town on 15 APR 1856  at South Kirkby, All Saints, Yorkshire, England.

Frances North Tasker was the mother of Tristram Tasker. Tristram was the father of John Tristram Tasker who married Edith Dorothy Fry. Edith and John were the parents of my grandmother Ethel Tasker Ellison.

Frances’s “Fanny” baptismal record: You can see that Frances’s father was a farmer. This is important information to be able to trace this family through censuses. The surname North is common and there were other William and Hannah North’s having children in South Kirkby at the same time.

Frances on the 1851 English Census: This census shows us that Frances is living with her older brothers Henry and Isaac. Henry is a farmer of 60 acres and Isaac is working on the farm for Henry. Frances is keeping their house. They are still in South Kirkby.  See that John North lives next door and farms 10 acres. This is probably an older brother. We know that Frances’s father died then before 1851. Her mother may be living with another of her children.

Frances and Thomas Tasker Marriage Record: From this record we learn that Thomas Tasker was a plumber and (?), that his father was John Tasker and that John Tasker was a plumber and possibly a glazier (?). William North, Frances’s father, was a farmer. We know we have the right couple then. Something else to note, Henry North was a witness for this document and both Thomas and Frances could sign their own names. The couple above them could not, they put their mark next to their names. This means both Frances and Thomas were educated.

Frances Burial Record: Frances was only 44 years old when she died. She was buried in South Kirkby on 1 AUG 1871. This gives us the place to search for her grave.
