Ashby Family

ASHBY FAMILY. This name derives from “the family that lives by the ash tree” The earliest families lived in Liecestershire. Ashbys settled in Australia and America in 19th century.


The information below is taken from Parish Registers, Grewelthorpe school and census records & Memorial Inscriptions (M.I.) from Grewelthorpe churchyard. If you find this information helpful or if you have anything to add, please contact me.


Thanks to Janet Cox for her research on William & Mary And Arthur & Ann Ashby. [Dec 2013]

Letter from Paul Nicholson of Leeds. April 2014. I was delighted to see your website on Grewelthorpe and in particular the list of people in the Ashby family. When I was very young my parents used to take me for short holidays to stay with a couple called Mr and Mrs Ashby at Scotton near Knaresborough. They lived at 4 Nidd View Cottages which are located on the second turning right into Scotton from the Knaresborough to Ripley road. I knew Mr Ashby as simply Bob Ashby. They had a daughter called Mildred who was committed to Menston Asylum for what could only be schizophrenia nowadays. She must have been in her teens when she started to commit violent acts and had to be committed. I have done some research and can now prove that his name was Robert Ashby but cannot rule out other Christian names. Also she was called Mary Elizabeth Ashby. I also know that she came from Wales and have in fact found a Mary Elizabeth Roberts born in Denbighshire that may well be her. She died on December 27th 1966 and was buried at Farnham Churchyard. The death notice in the Yorkshire Evening Post states that she was a widow of Robert Ashby.I have found a death record for a William Robert Ashby in MAR 1966 aged 78 , In the now defunct district of Claro which is the same district as that in which Mary Elizabeth Ashby’s death was registered.Searches in Ancestry and FreeBMD find a Mildred A Ashby born Knaresborough in 1912. And a death of Mildred A Ashby in Wakefield in1968. The mother’s maiden name is given as Roberts.And a marriage record exists for a William Robert Ashby and a Mary Elizabeth Roberts in Harrogate in February 1912.
A 1911 census record for Wiiliam Robert Ashby gives his year of birth as approx. 1888 at Dallowgill Yorkshire (which is close to Laverton). I think the findings support the idea that William Robert Ashby is in fact the Bob Ashby from Scotton. What I would like to do is forge a link between Bob and his wife and the Ashby families that come from the Laverton area in the hope that I might find descendants of his brothers and sisters ( his daughter had no children of her own).


If you can help Paul with his research, please contact the site.


Letter from Janet Cox August 2015. Last year I read Paul Nicholson’s query about the Robert and Mary Elizabeth Ashby that he used to stay with in Scotton but at the time I couldn’t see a connection with my Ashbys. However, I now know that his Robert was actually William Robert Ashby and married to Mary Elizabeth Roberts. William Robert was the second son of Arthur Ashby and Ann Kirkley and thus a relation of mine. I found William Robert and Mary living with their daughter Mildred Ann at 4 Nidd View Cottages in Scotton in the electoral registers from 1932-1940.
Sadly I don’t have any contact details for any of the descendants of Arthur Ashby and Ann Kirkley though I am sure that some still live in the Ripon/Knaresborough area.
I would be happy to contact Paul with what I know of Robert’s family.
