My Wilkinson family was from Clayton, Yorkshire, England. I have had trouble making signification progess on this line for some time due to the common name of my eariliest ancestor and the numerous candidates for his parents.
My earliest ancestor is William Wilkinson. His son James was born in 1839. This would make his birth estimate anywhere from 1794-1814, depending on where James was in the birth order.
James married Elizbeth Brook. They had Hannah (b 1863), Joseph (b1865), Martha Jane (b1867), George (b1871), Thomas (b 1871), and Wright,( b 1873). See Brook page for information on Elizabeth’s ancestors.
