SEDGWICK FAMILY TREE

This is the start of what I have been working on for years. The earliest records come from the Bolton Abbey* Parish records, in Yorkshire*, York* County, England. Other things came from talking to various family members. The family bible, which Aunt Mame has, was a great help. That is how I found my way to the oldest members. There are some interesting entries in the bible, one is that when the ship "Anna Kajamas" come in who ever has the bible will get a lot of money. Another is that you must put a penny on the windowsill on New Years Eve and you will then have good luck. One more that I can remember by mother also saying is does not rock an empty rocking chair, because someone will die. It also says in the bible that you do not put your shoes on the table. That are only some of the things written.

From there I went to the Mormon Library and found the old parish records. To everyone who helped me through this I give a great big THANKS.

All living relative names have been excluded. If there are any questions in regards to the living relatives please feel free to e-mail me.

I received this mail while on America on Line. It gives the location of Bolton Abbey, where the oldest of my records are from.

Bolton Abbey is alive and well in Yorkshire close to my home and where I was a few weeks back. It is an old Cistercian ruin in a small town of the same name 20 miles west of Harrogate my birthplace. It is near Skipton and in the general area of James Herriots books All Creatures great and Small. Good luck

>>Does anyone have any information on Sedgwicks, my last records are from

Bolton Abbey. Does anyone know where Bolton Abbey was.<<

Bolton Abbey is in Wharfedale in West Yorkshire and is mainly in ruins now. It is 2-3 miles N of Addingham, which is near Ilkley (I lived in Ilkley for some years).
