Dear Jane


I have just found your excellent web-site .I am related to Robert Perkins and Katherine who lived in Cottingham in the 1590's.Most of the descendants were stonemasons who seemed to migrate up and down the limestone belt.


I am particularly interested in locating old quarries in and around Cottingham and information on buildings that the family may have worked on. I would be pleased to exchange any information

Hello Judy,


The Dale pocket park in Cottingham (just up past the Church) used to be an ironstone quarry, although I'm not sure when it was operational. One of the other correspondents on the site, Bernard Perkins from Leamington Spa, is also descended from Robert and Katherine Perkins. I'll put you in touch.
