Leyland Family
Started by: jacky2 (2) Report abuse
Trying to trace any of my Grandfathers relatives. My grandad, John Leyland was from Wigan.Born 1893, Father,James Leyland. He married May Storey in Wigan, March 1916,and had a son Clifford, born Wigan, Mar 1920. He then left Wigan and moved into Sth Yorkshire to work in the coalfields.They had a daughter Doreen registered as having been born in Doncaster 1925. May died and he moved to Grimethorpe, remarrying May Sherlock in 1932. This marriage produced 3 children, Edmund, John and Joan.
Grandad was wounded in the Great War and suffered from poor health through most of his adult life, dying of TB in Middleton Sanitorium, Ilkley on 28th June 1941, aged 47.
My problem tracing my family back is that only Edmund is left alive and he was only young when his father died, his mother remarrying and John being in effect forgotten.
I would really appreciate any info on finding my grandads family.
many thanks Jacky2

Thanks for the reply, the info was most useful. I think the leyland entry for Spring St is the correct one, it's just tracing my grandad back to that point. Hopefully a copy of his marriage certificate to May Storey will shed some light on matters. Thanks again much appreciated

Hello Jackie
At last we have finally found the missing Leyland.
My name is Jim Leyland and I am the grandson of James Leyland, the brother of your John. Their parents were James Leyland and Annie Brown.
Please email my wife on annieley658@yahoo.co.uk and she will share all the details we have.

Jim Leyland

Hi Jackie,
Re Leylands of Wigan .
we seem to have lost touch as your email is invalid. Do you remember me, my husbands grandfather James Leyland is the brother of your grandfather John. I have some more information to share, please if possible email me on annieley658@yahoo.co.uk
best wishes Anne and Jim Leyland (wigan)
