English ancestors


My father was born in Yorkshire, and as far as I have traced all his ancestors are English. In fact most of them come from the area now called Cleveland but in their day they probably understood the North Riding of Yorkshire and the southern part of Durham. Accordingly, membership of the Cleveland Family History Society has been particularly useful to me to understand how to conduct research in this area as well as the fact they have published many booklets of various genealogical interest. My particular challenge on this part of the tree is, where did Andrew NORRIS (who died in Rosedale, Yorkshire in 1828) come from? He was born about 1752. The list below is a Tiny Tafel view (excluding the soundex) - the columns are earliest known date, last known date, SURNAME, earliest known place, last known place.
