Strangeway and Strangeways Families in the York Area

Having suggested that most of the Strangeway families in Leeds originated in York it is tempting to assume that there would be nothing new by looking at all the York families. However on checking the records it was again clear that there was at least one family line that did not tie up with any of the families covered under Leeds.

Simply checking the 1851 York Census highlights the problem as new names and locations appear.

As with all these family trees there are likely to be errors and gaps - since few (no?) family trees are ever complete or provide the fully detailed story of something as complex as a family’s history . And it is impossible to wait until all the details are confirmed before publishing what fragments are known about a family tree - since family trees will always have gaps. All the information listed here has been obtained from publicly available sources. Sources put online by both official outlets and through the efforts of amateur researchers. Also note that many of the BMD entries only refer to the Quarter and the Registration District where the event was registered - since these are a main source of the public records.

The latest version of all the family trees is available online at our Webtrees site. Please get in touch with any corrections so that we can be as complete and accurate as possible.
