This family history and local (Thirsk, North Yorkshire, England) information exists as a repository of information about part of my own family and those they associated with during their lifetimes. Some of the information not published elsewhere (and I'm only setting out to publish that which is not already widely available) may be of interest.
Many important figures are ignored, and some unimportant issues receive disproportionate attention. It isn't meant to be another history of Thirsk; rather an idiosyncratic collection of items that interested me from an individual perspective. Not all the comments are reverent. Particular scorn is reserved for some of my own ancestors. Hopefully, odd characters ignored by the histories of Thirsk will find a proper place here.
It isn't finished, nor could it ever be, but material does get added or corrected on occasion.
Corrections, further information, suggestions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special effort has been taken to exclude information about living people - name apart.

The information about the early Bells of Thirsk isn't quite there. I have copies
of 4 fundamentally different family trees - hopefully some sense will be possible - any
further information is very welcome.
