Thanks.


We [the Gaunts] originate in Derbyshire, through Staffordshire into Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire as well as Manchester.

I got the years down off FreeBMD. I guessed it might be Middleton [part of the Oldham Reg area.]


There are quite a few [related] Gaunts, in the area, descendants of the above.


Searching far distant ancestors is easier than the closer ones sometimes.


Thanks once again for the info.

Hi


I'm a bit late to this. My great grandad and great grandma were Thomas Edward Gaunt and May Fouldes. They had 3 children, Tom, Albert and Mary. Thomas, Tom and Albert went to war and Mary stayed with neighbours and May passed away in 1924. I don't know the full details but I know my grandad always tried to find her when I was younger, don't know how they lost touch.
