Hello and good morning

I have just been looking at your site, ref Cottingham. A very nice and informative piece.

I am descended from Mary Elizabeth Beadsworth (my great grandmother) who came from Cottingham and I was wondering if you could put me in touch with any Beadsworths who are still in Cottingham, to aid my family research.

yours sincerely

Hello Malcolm,


Lovely to hear from you, and thanks for your feedback on the site.


There are several Beadsworths still in the village, including Laurie and his wife Irene, who have given me lots of help with the site. Laurie and his sister Mary (now Needham) both still live in the village, and Mary lives in the old family home in Water Lane. I think their grandfather was Arthur Beadsworth?


Irene has done lots of research into the Beadsworth family so she may be able to help you. There is also a Michael Beadsworth (who I think is Laurie’s cousin or second cousin). In addition, the electoral roll for 2000 shows a Norman Beadsworth who I haven't had contact with. Anyway, get in touch with Irene, I’m sure she’d be happy to help you out.
