Welcome to the Thorsby Family Website!!

Birth 2 JAN 1794 • Beckingham, Nottinghamshire, England Death 1875 • Ecclesall Bierlow, Yorkshire West Riding

I have always been trying to find Thomas Thorsby's parents, William and Mary Thorsby. Because Thomas was born in 1820, I thought his father must have been born around 1800. I recently located a William Thorsby in the 1871 England Census that was born in 1793. Could this be the William I have been looking for? I am not sure. The census shows that in 1871 he was living with his son-in-law in Misson, (Civil Parrish), Newington (Town), Yorkshire (County) , England. The census indicates that he was born in Beckingham, Nottinghamshire, England. Source information: RG10/4723, Registration District Doncaster,Sub-Registration District Bawtry.




William and Mary also had a son Charles, born in England in 1828. I found records stating that he immigrated in 1852. Married Charity Ann Richley in 1858 and died in 1902.
