I am a descendant of the Petty family. My grandfather on my mother’s side was Edwin Taylor Petty and my grandmother was Mary Petty.
My 4th great grandparents were Micah Petty and his wife Mary Nelson. Micah was the grandson of Silvester Petty of Langbar near Ilkley who was my 6th great grandfather. One of his children was the Revd. John Petty (Primitive Methodist Minister) 1807-1868.
