Hello, my name is Liz McGregor and I live in Dorset, UK. My birth surname is Armstead and my family come from Yorkshire. Armstead is an unusual name in England but I see so many listed on this site in the USA. Do you have any ancestors who originate from Leeds in West Yorkshire? We may be distantly related! My father's name was Edward, born in Leeds in 1911.

My husband has ARMISTEADs from West Yorkshire, around Barnoldswick. Martha ARMISTEAD was born in Barnoldswick in 1807. She was the daughter of William ARMISTEAD and Martha GREEN. She had several siblings and it is possible one of them went to Leeds. There were may ARMISTEADS around the Yorkshire/Lancashire border. Martha's father was born at Downham, Lancashire very near Barnoldswick.

Hi Liz,
My name is Lorinda Arconti, and I live in Danbury, Connecticut in the States. My great-grandfather was Richard Armistead, who came from Leeds, England!! His parents were Alfred and Elizabeth Armistead. Richard was born in 1879. He had a brother named Robert (b. 1875) and a sister Elizabeth (b. 1889). The last address I had from Richard was from the 1901 UK Census as 34 Main Street, Armley Van Driver, Leeds, Yorkshire. Are we possibly related??

I am doing a one name study on Armistead (Armitstead, Armstead) and have probably got more details of your ancestors - do you know the name of Edwards father ?

I am doing a one-name study on Armistead (and variants)
I have quite a bit of detail on Alfred's ancestors and would be interested in Richards descendants

Karen,
I would LOVE to exchange information!! I have been looking into Alfred's ancestry, and keep hitting brick walls. Are you related to Alfred?? Richard Armistead was my great-great-grandfather. Hope to hear from you soon!!
