Hilton Family of Cherry Burton. Poor Law Rates for Cherry Burton 1800, Holme on the Wolds 1787, and Lund 1813-1814

I last looked at the Hilton Family of Cherry Burton and Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire 11 May 2011 and other than a comment on the Roehampton University database on the Hearth Tax paid in the East Riding I have not particularly thought about them in the two years since. Life has been much too busy!

Jane Hilton married Robert Gray the younger 6 Jun 1771 at Cherry Burton and she was buried at Cherry Burton 13 Sep 1824 from her home in Etton. Jane was the mother of Robert Gray who was baptized at Holme on the Wolds and Robert Gray was my 3x great grandfather and the last of my Gray line to die in England.

In the earlier blog:

I mentioned that I had found a baptism for Jane Hilton 1 Aug 1739 in Beverley with parents Thomas Hilton and Mary Constable. Since Jane was 87 when she was buried 13 Sep 1824 and working my way back the baptism would have her 85 years and 1 month of age so in her 86th year. As well Thomas Hilton and Mary Constable were married in Beverley 20 Feb 1737.

The last research day I looked at the Constable family but the intention is to look further at the Hilton family.

Looking through my paid sites and google search does not add to my knowledge of the Hilton family.

I believe that I will transcribe some of the material I collected for Cherry Burton in 2008 from the Family History Library.

At Lund I was interested in the Cobb family which remained at Lund into the 20th century as far as I can tell and I would have cousins who still live in this area.

I will continue extracting information from the images that I took at Salt Lake City with this research day. I do not think there is anything more I can do on the Hilton family until I order in the Registers from Salt Lake City or go there - whichever comes first!
