Thank you Lin for finding us a new home so quickly and seamlessly (at least from our perspective!)

PROBERTs originally from Oswestry arrived in the West Riding in the late 1870s to work in the coal mines at Wakefield, Thurnscoe, South Kirkby etc.

Joseph PROBERT (1848-1920) had 13 children and all had families - so there are a lot of descendants.

I have an outline of his family on my website here:
