Hello Noel,

I have a few Feathers in my database. My Gr. Gr. Grandfather was John Feather (abt 1815-1870), born in either Haworth or Oxenhope. He married a Sarah Crossley (I believe) of Kildwick. As per the 1841 census, they lived in Keighley, District 12, Back Hope St. On the 1851 census it lists John and Sarah as living in District 4d, Hope Mill. It also lists son Crossley (8 yrs), William Henry (5),Mary Jane (3), Thomas(4 months) and Charlotte Fawthaugh, a servant from Halifax. I know there were other children born after this census. John was a worsted manufacturer in Keighley and employed at least 20 workers.

My grandfather George Feather was born in Oct 1851, right after the taking of the census. Other children include , Joseph (Aug 21, 1853), Frank (Mar. 26, 1859), and possibly Samuel (May 27, 1852).

Do any of these names sound familiar? I know there were a great many Feathers in that area and finding the right ones are like searching for a needle in a haystack.

If any of this is familiar, please contact me and we can swap data.
