‘One Hundred Years of one Addingham family: the Brears’ by Anne Knight
This is the detailed story of a generation of the author’s family – the Brear’s are best known for their involvement with the Addingham Sawmill (‘William Brear & Sons’) but this page includes details of all members of the family between 1840 and 1940.
For more information about the Sawmill and the Brear family see ‘Cotton to Wood’ – a new book by Don Barrett (go to the Books page).
To find out about other Addinghamers past and present:
We suggest you refer to the books about the village or try the following sources:-
1. The ‘Ilkley Pages’ People Page, for Wharfedale contacts, reminiscences, family information.
2. Genfair – ‘One stop shop for family & local historians’.
3. Wharfegen – A Genealogical Study of Wharfedale & Craven by Nic Wilson
5. My Heritage – Host and search your family tree website.
5. Requests for information:-
“Am wondering if anyone might be able to provide information about Fred and Elsie Jennings who had the shop at 148 Main Street in the 1930-50s. I am descended from them and am looking for information or people who may have had some form of contact.
Any help or suggestions appreciated
