I am currently researching the family tree of a friend, Bryan Ward,
and have found several I’ansons in his direct line. The information I have
to date is as follows:
I hope these few details are of interest and would be grateful for any
further information on the above and their families.
His grandmother was Sarah Elizabeth I’anson, born 29 May 1880 in Holbeck,
Leeds and died 9 April 1952 In Batley. She married Harry Ward on the 27
April 1907 at Staincliffe Church, Dewsbury.
Sarah’s father was John Elison I’anson born about 1860 in Leeds and he
married Elizabeth Rodley on 8 March 1879.
John’s father was James I’anson born about 1831 in Holbeck, Yorkshire and
he married Rachel also born about 1831 in Holbeck.
Thank you in anticipation,

On the following page of your excellent website:
I think the husband of MARY ELIZABETH I'ANSON, b. 15 June 1872,
Stockton-on-Tees; d. February 1928, Stockton-on-Tees
should be John Hauxwell (GRO Marriage Index Jul-Sep 1917 Ref 9d 1127).
My 4th cousin, twice removed, Eliza Elliff married Mary Elizabeth's
brother Alfred Edward.
