Snainton North Yorkshire Direct Maternal Lines

Beswicks, Burnetts, Skeltons, Marshalls and Orrahs

These folks claimed to active Methodists and when the came to America in 1890 they named their son Francis Asbury Brickey and grandson Thomas Coke Brickey. However I have not find any non-conformist records for them in Snainton.  I find only “official” records performed in nearby Brompton by Sawdon.  My Snainton line ends with Charles Beswick born November, 1840 in Scarborough married on 22 Mar 1869 or 8 Apr 1869 in Brompton by Sawdon to Martha Burnett born February 1848 in Snainton who died about 1892 in Scarborough. Charles parents were Samuel Beswick by trade a wheelwright from 1846 to 1861 in Snainton. Samuel was born 1813 in Snainton, and died August 1886 in Scarborough.

Martha’s parents were John Burnett born in 1811 and appears in the 1861 Census in Snainton as a farmer with 438 acres and employing 6 laborers. John’s wife was Alice Skelton who he married on 7 June 1838 in Brompton By Sawdon. Alice was born about 1817 in Snainton and died on 13 January 1872.

I hope that the “official” sacraments might be identified as related to Primitive Methodist worship.  Thank you for any help.

  • Here is a record of Jane Burnett. Scarborough Primitive Methodist Circuit Registers. “Baptism Dec 9th 1857: Jane, born Oct 20th, daughter of William Burnett and Mary (nee Beswick) of Snainton, carrier.” Any idea where I can find others on-line?
