A great site Jane.

I have traced my ancestors back to Cottingham. I am researching Tansley, Panter  & Inkle and would love to hear from others with the same name interests. I still have many gaps to fill.

 
Keep up  the good work on the site.

Hello Steve,

 

Lovely to hear from you. There are Tansleys and Panters in  the 1841, 1881 and 1901 Censuses for Cottingham. I couldn't find any Inkles but have found some Inkleys! There are still Tansleys and Panters in the village that may be related somewhere along the line.

 

Good luck with your research.

 

Regards

Hi Jane,

 

Thanks for your prompt response and the info. You may be able to me resolve a conflict of info. I have been looking for Panters in the 1841 census and Alan Clarke informed me there were none. However, a RootsChat participant sent me census details of 2 Panter families living in Church Lane, Cottingham. I noted that you had no Panters listed in the 1841 census you sent me.

 

Are you able to check this out for me?

 

Regards

Hi Steve,

 

I actually got my 1841 Census from Alan Clarke so I donít have any Panters on my list either. However, Alan has transcribed the Census from the original returns so itís possible he made a mistake, and there is a family of ĎPointersí in Church Lane. Only one family though! Could this be them?

Hi Jane,

 

Very interesting information. I believe that this is them. The name Levi is a major clue as well as all the other names appearing in later censuses as Panter. Interestingly, the previous information I had also included Elizabeth age 50 and Rachel age 20 in addition to the list you supplied. The name Panter has certainly been presented in a numbers of ways including Panther, Pantor & Painter. Pointer is new one!!

 

Regards,
