of my relatives and ancestors lived in Tanshelf, so I have a long list
of names, but one of the main ones is PONSONBY and all who they married.
great, great grandfather Harry/Henry PONSONBY was born in Cardiff,
Wales, but came to Pontefract to marry Harriet BAGGAN, 1879. I believe
they had 13 children.
there were no other PONSONBY's in this area before he came here, all his
descendants are thus my relatives.
information about any of them would be gratefully received. Copies of
certificates or photographs (of the people of Tanshelf) would be a real
bonus. I would be willing to print out a family tree for anyone
(a Tanshelf lass 1956-1971)
