|The Name, The Places, The Branches|
Several years ago I became interested in family history, however I quickly hit a problem with my 3x great grandfather, John Micklethwaite, born about 1805 - I couldn't identify his parents. So I started to collect information about Micklethwaites in the Huddersfield area where he lived. Over the years, this has developed into a One Name Study, expanding outwards across Yorkshire, now covering the whole world. This site presents much of the information I have collected.
Along the way, I have been helped by many whose assistance is gratefully acknowledged - in particular Pat Smith, Roland Haigh, and the Crich WEA FH group have taught me much. I am also grateful to John Micklethwait and the multitude of Micklethwait(e) relatives who have given me information and help.
