Hello, brand new to this website. I have lots of connections to England with family members being Harper, Eastwood, Birkinshaw and Williams, mostly from Sheffield, Yorkshire. I have run into a brick wall with my Eastwood relatives. Any help would be appreciated.

Frank Eastwood born 31/8/1886 in Sheffield, died 9/1/1965. He married Sarah Eastwood (Williams) whose fathers name was Daniel, born 1860. Franks siblings are Fred, Albert, Ernest, Nellie, Tom, Sarah Helen and George. Sarah's siblings were Minnie, Gertrude and George.
Don't have a lot more than that really.

The above link is to Frank and family in 1891. His parents are Thomas and Sarah .

Thomas Eastwood, a widower, married Sarah Stancell nee Jackson, a widow, in Sheffield 19 September 1873.

Thomas had previoulsly married Harriet Wedge in 1867 and had 2 children, Florence born 1871 and William born 1871. Harriet died in 1872.

Sarah had married Thomas Stancell in 1867 in Lincolnshire and they also had tow children, William in 1868 and John Henry in 1870, before Thomas died in 1871.

Hoprfully this will now help you to work backwards usin the Census records and the GRO indexes and if you have access to findmypast then images of the marriages are available at a price.

Yes I am, I have conflicting reports from family members, saying Frank Eastwood (above) had parents also called Frank and Sarah but I can't find reference to them, then I have been searching and think that I have Thomas and Sarah so just trying to work out which one is correct. Thanking you.

I'll expand on that when I return home if I'm feeling ok.

Thank you so much for all of your help, you confirmed what I thought I already knew but I didn't know for sure.
