GUMMERSON FAMILY HISTORY
am tracing my husband's family tree. His grandfather, Arthur Gummerson,
was born in Knottingley in 1868, and had two children, Emily born
1895/96, and William Henry, born 27 October 1897. I have William's birth
certificate on which his mother is shown as being Polly Gummerson,
formerly Sykes. He was born at 8 Stuart Street, Tanshelf. Arthur
Gummerson married Elizabeth Pawson in 1901.
cannot find any trace of Polly, or could it be Mary Ann, on the 1901
census. Arthur's maternal grandparent's lived on Hill Top, Knottingley,
in 1891 and a Mary Ann Sykes (Polly) lived on the next street, Weeland
Road. Could this be the same Polly (Mary Ann)?
1901, the two children, Emily and William, lived with Arthur, his new
wife, and their two-month-old son, in Victoria Terrace. Where is Polly?
this ring a bell with anyone?
