New Adamthwaite web site by Sue
From - I transferred all the pages from the old Adamthwaite Archive website to a new url at www.adamthwaitearchive.org.uk.
The part of the family remembered here is of the olive green line - Sue has researched nine lines. We go back to John Adamthwaite born about 1730 and wed Isabel Keasley in Ravenstonedale in 1753, when they were both described as 'of this parish' - but we can't find a birth for him. It is possible that he was a Quaker. A number of members of this line emigrated to Australia.

This is to let you know that the December 2008 Newsletter is now available on the Adamthwaite Archive at Newsletter with all the latest news on the Adamthwaite front, plus some helpful links and the first results from our DNA project.



From on Sun, 1 Sep 2002
So interested in your information on the Adamthwaites. My husband, Tom Adamthwaite, and I worked on the Adamthwaite family records for many years. I am still finding out things, but all the research points to the fact that they all come from that farm "Adamthwaite" a little way out of Ravenstonedale, Westmorland. Where do you fit in to the family, Elizabeth?
Answer, I am a sideways cousin through the Gulley then Arnold links
