you might check the N. Yorks County Record office at Northallerton they have parish records their email address is - archives@northyorks.gov.uk goodluck
Thanks Pejay
I think William died 1836 and Dorothy 1859 both at Ainderby, l have traced Sarah as she is on my direct line but was hoping to find dorothys maiden name, driving me mad as l am not able to get to Northallerton for a while.

Thanks again for looking for me
Hi Kinshar
thank you so much l have not had time to check it out fully but it looks like it is the correct family. What l find amazing is that Sarah Bearpark (Williams) daughter married a Thomas Johnson and one of their deccendants eventually ended up living in doncaster in the 1930's where most of the family still live to date. Can you tell me is there anyway that l am able to contact the person who the tree belongs to.
thank you
:cool: Bearpark is a village and civil parish in the City of Durham in England. It is situated a few miles west of Durham, and a short distance to the north of Ushaw Moor. The name may be a corruption of the French term Beau Repaire - meaning "beautiful retreat". Half a mile to the north of the present village lies the ruins of the Beaurepaire Priory, built in the 13th century.....
