Thackray Family

History of the Thackray. surname.
\nThis unusual name is of Old Norse origin and is either a locational or a topographical surname. If the former, it derives from the place called “,Thackray”, in the Parish of Great Timble, in West Yorkshire which has now been submerged in the Fewston reservoir. The placenames’, meaning and derivation are from the Olde Norse elements “,thak”,, meaning thatching, reeds and “,(v)ra”,, meaning a nook or corner. The topographical surname denotes one who lived at such a “,nook or corner”, –, “,where reeds for thatching grew”,.
\nThe name development has included John Thackerowe (1548, Yorkshire). James Thackerey (1602, ibid.) and Thomas Thackwray (1613, ibid.). On February 10th 1642, John, son of John and Ann Thackray was christened at St. Andrews, Holborn, London. The marriage of Robert Thackeray and Margaret Eaton took place on July 22nd 1688 at St. Mary’,s, St Marylebone Road, London.
\nProbably the most famous bearer of the name was the novelist William Makepeace Thackeray (1811 –, 1863), author of “,Vanity Fair”, (1848).
\nThe first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of John de Tha Kwra, which was dated 1379, the Yorkshire Poll Tax Returns. during the reign of King Richard 11, Richard of Bordeaux, 1377 –, 1399.

\nLetter from Jenn Thackwray in Canada. July 2015.

\n\n

My name is Jennifer Thackwray, the furthest I’,ve been able to get back with source documentation is John Thackwray(1762-1848) who married Mary Pearson.
\nMy father was Ian Thackwray (5 Jun 1942 Leeds –, 25 Jun 2010 Ontario, Canada), his father was Ralph Thackwray (11 Sep 1909 Guisborough –, 4 Jan 1779 Ontario Canada) m Maisie Boddy in Leeds. Ralph’,s father was Ralph Herbert Thackwray (15 Dec 1884 –, 16 Feb 1944) who married Jane Hannah Spetch in 1908 Holbeck. Ralph Herberts father was Ralph Thackwray (11 Dec 1843 –, 10 Aug 1905) who married Jane Meadows Kirk in 1866. Ralph’,s father was David Thackwray (26 Apr 1809 –, 18 Nov 1876) who married Jane Brown in 1842 (her first marriage was to Peter Johnson). David’,s parents were John Thackwray (1762-1848) and Mary Pearson.

\n\n

I know that Ralph Herbert Thackwray’,s sister Mary Elizabeth married twice, the first time to a George Clark —, they had two children, Lottie, and Teresa. When George Clark passed away Mary married Isaac Calvert Cooke and they had two children, Elsie and George. Isaac &, Mary owned the Code and Lobster Inn in Staithes and it was passed down to Teresa Cooke. My father and his parents recalled fondly going to Staithes and that Auntie ‘,Teesee’,[sp] owned the Code &, Lobster.

\n\n

My email address is jthackwray@live.ca, I live in Canada so I’,m not able to get to the archives in Yorkshire. I also don’,t have any photos of my ancestors —,- I’,d love to be able to share faces with my children. More than anything I’,d love to have contact with ‘,Thackwray’, descendants as my father was an only child and his father was the only brother that lived or had children. Feeling like I’,m missing out on some great reunions over there lol.
\nLove to hear from family.
\nKindest regards,
\nJenn

\nLetter from Christine Steele [nee Thackray] about her branch of the family.
\nThe Albert Thackray in your ‘,Grewelthorpe’, listing was my father. He was Frederick Albert, known as Bert, born 7th Feb 1910 just younger than his twin sister Nora. They were born at Rodwell House Pateley Bridge and had an older sister Madge.They were the children of William (Will) and Annie Rose who are interred in Pateley cemetary.
\nOf Will’,s first family I knew Robert Thackray who was living in Pateley in 1967 –, I think never married and no issue. There was Thomas who served with the West yorks regiment and was killed on the Somme (High Wood) in WW1 and Will married to Susan. Will and Susan had one son Charles Edward who I knew well and who died in 1963 –, he had served in WW2, never married and in later years lived in Whixeley. One of the daughters Hannah (i remember her)married Charles Dowzall and lived in leeds
\nBert, my father married Mary Marshall of Hedge Nook Cottage Dallowgill in Kirkby Malzeard church I think in 1939, they lived initially in Wath, then moved to Scawton North yorks where I was born in 1944 and then to Brandsby. Bert died in 1984 and his sister Nora (Glasshouses) I think in 2001. Nora’,s 2 daughters live in the Pateley area.
\nIf you have any further in formation about William’,s family with Jane I would be delighted to hear it
\nYours sincerely
\nMary Christine Steele (nee Thackray).

\nThanks to Mike Lever for information about Samuel William Thackwray and his family.
\n

\nThanks to Margaret Kelly [nee Thackwray] for the following information re. William Thackray.\n “,Elizabeth Mann was my 2x great grandmother. I think the William Thackray she married in 1818 was not William son of John from Aldfield, but another William, born about 1795, who was a butcher. I haven’t been able to identify where this William came from, but the other witnesses at their wedding were Richard Thackray and Thomas Hawkesworth, so I have a hunch that he may be an unrecorded son of Richard Thackray and Ann Frear, as a Richard Thackray was also witness to the marriages of their other three sons. There is also a Hawkesworth connection to this family.

\n\n

Elizabeth &, William’s children were baptised at Winksley and later Kirkby Malzeard (information from cds of Ripon Cathedral &, Ripon Chapelries records from Ripon Historical Society). I have the family bible which lists the children’s births. William died at Winksley 13 April 1840 aged 45of Scarlatina, and Elizabeth died 15 December 1852 of congestion of the brain. My great grandfather, also William, registered her death.
\nThe other William, of Aldfield, also married an Elizabeth , but this was Elizabeth Severs. They were living in Sawley in 1860 when Elizabeth died – I have a photo of her gravestone which was kindly sent to me by another internet contact.

\n\n I would be most grateful if anyone could shed more light on my William.\n
\nAn update from Margaret Kelly March 2014.\nI have an update on William Thackwray born c.1795 who married Elizabeth Mann.\n\n

Thanks to the marvels of google, I came across the Dallowgill website, where I found the will of Robert FRYER of Ringbeck &, Greygrith 1761-1839, Will made 1833 proved 1839,

\n\n

Among the bequests listed are:

\n\n

“I give and bequeath unto my Sister Ann Thackwray the wife of Richard Thackwray one Annuity or clear yearly sum of Nine pounds”

\n\n “ the sum of Two hundred pounds to be paid to and equally divided amongst Thomas, Richard, John, William, James and Ann the six children of my said Sister Ann Thackwray”. This is Ann nee Frear / Fryer, married to Richard Thackwray 15 Dec 1783 at Ripon. I still haven’t found William’s baptism record, but have found his siblings’ baptisms on the Ripon Cathedral cd. I am therefore fairly confident that my hunch was correct, and my great great grandfather William was the son of Richard and Ann. \n\n



\nLetter from Celia Pollington in Feb 2013.\nI too am descended from William Thackray and Elizabeth Mann. On my tree we have John Thackray C 1738 Ripon (possibly Aldfield) married to Beatrice Rogers. They had 2 children Christiana bap 29/1/1764 and John bap 28/12/1762. He married Mary Pearson in Ripon on 23/11/1795 mary was born 1771 and died 1833 and they are both buried in Winksley Churchyard. John and mary were farmers and they had 9 children of which William was number 2. He married Elizabeth Mann in Ripon on 18/8/1818. Elizabeth was born in Winksley. Williams occupation was down as butcher. William and Elizabeth had 7 children and Edward their first born is my ancestor. He married Elizabeth Park In Ripon Cathedral along with his brother Robert who married Ann , Elizabeths sister. A joint wedding. Elizabeth and Ann were the daughters of Thomas Park innkeeper of the Half Moon Inn in Fellbeck. Celia Pollington nee Hutchinson \n
