WHITLEY FAMILY HISTORY 

 I am researching my family history and wondered if anyone in the Whitley area has an interest in or information regarding the history of the local families. My main interest is in the Horsman family, who lived in Whitley (Balne Moor area ?) around the 1700's/1800's.  Elizabeth Horsman is my 2nd great-grandmother.  I believe she was born in Kellington around 1805 but the only records that I can find relating to the Horsmans seem to place them in nearby Whitley for many years.  I would be most obliged if anyone is able to offer any assistance in my search.

Kind regards

There is now a real possibility that All Saints Church here in Whitley will cease to be a place of worship, close and potentially be sold off for development. A consultation period to debate the options for this building has now started. If you wish to be part of this consultation and want to suggest a way to secure the future of this building in some way, you are invited to contact the Parochial Church Council in the first place, or NY Councillor John McCartney who is also compiling a list of people who wish to contribute.
