Hi Sally---can't believe I missed your message about John Beaconsfield Balmforth. He was born in 1885 one of 7 children of John and Sarah Alice Balmforth. John was born in 1845 one of 10 children of Thomas and Mary nee Clegg. Thomas was born in 1821 one of 3 children of George and Mary nee Horsfall and George was born in 1791 one of 9 children of Samuel and Sarah nee Bentley. Samuel was my husbands 4x gt grandfather born in 1761 the son of John and Hannah nee Slater.
You probably know all this by now!!!!
