HI Mo 
I am Barry born 30/09/1943 twin brother to Roger born 20/9/1943 (now living in Clermont Ferrant France). My father is Ernest one of 11 brothers and sisters born in Burnley.  My grandfathers name was John I'Anson a chair maker in Burnley his wife was called Palmer and I believe was from that area.  My grandfather came from between Liverpool andPreston not quite sure.  My father is now 97 years old and lives in Morecambe. 

I have a brother and sister Robert Fredrick and Margaret they are also twins.  Robert lives in Bolton Margaret lives in Blackburn I live in Darwen. 

I dont know all the names of my fathers siblings but here are the ones I can remember first born was William killed in 1st world war I don't know the order of the others.  The names are Allan, Fred, John, Ernest, and Ben who was the youngest killed in 2nd world war.  I believe he was the tail gunner in the  RAF.

The sisters are Margaret who is still living Janey and Ida.  Ida's married name was Thomlinson; Margarets was Fleming. There are a couple missing I will try to find out from my father if this is what you want.  If you need any more let me know specificaly what you want and I will try and get it . 
Best wishes

Hello there,

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:

  • 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.
I hope these few details are of interest and would be grateful for any further information on the above and their families.

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.
