I am trying to build my family tree. The earliest I have are all in Cheshire starting with William Ankers b.abt 1813 in Tattenhall d.16 Aug 1878 in Saighton. He married Mary Anne Hopley (b.1812 in Bickley d.1885 in Saighton) at St. Peters Chuch Hargrave in 1841 and they had a son John Ankers b.abt 1844 in Hargrave and married Elizabeth ?. They had 7 children Esther, Tom, William, Thomas,Sarah E, Lucy jane and Rolla. Of those William b.1867 in Christleton married Elizabeth McConkie and they had 6 children one of whom was John Saville Ankers b.6 Apr 1887 in Hurwoth Durham Yorkshire and d.1970. He married Beatrice E Lowery and they had 4 children. Their eldest son John William Ankers was born 27 Aug 1914 in Easington,Seaham Harbour,Durham Yorkshire. He was my father. His father and family migrated to Australia in 1927 and returned to England in 1938 with the exception of my father who stayed in Australia where I was born. He died in 1980 and my mother died in 1982.
my father's siblings didn't have any sons and I was the only son to my father. Luckily I had 1 son and 4 daughters and my son has 3 sons so this branch of the family will continue for some time I hope.
I am interested in the earlier history of the family and want to find out about the movement of my Great Grandfather William from Cheshire to Yorkshire.
Any information that you can provide me will be gratefully accepted and hopefully we can invite each other to look at our family trees.
John William Ankers called "Bill"
