NOTE: This is a TEMPORARY WEBSITE ONLY, and is meant as a stopgap until the Main Website has been updated. Some of the notes are incomplete and many of the links will not work. There is still much data to add and conflicts to settle.

This tree has been compiled with the help of many contributors. Sincere thanks to all, and apologies to those whose information has not yet been added.

I have tried to verify as much information as possible but errors may exist. Individuals with uncertain details have a (see notes) label attached to their name.

If photos exist, they will be found in the individual's Scrapbook. Click the "ScrapBook" link in the left menu for a list. Scrapbooks can only contain a limited amount of text so I am now adding more presentable feature pages containing notes, photos and links. These pages are shown to the right of their Scrapbooks, but are presently very few. NOTE: The Main Menu (Top Left) will not work when you are in a scrapbook. You will have to use your browser's BACK button to exit or use the "Exit Scrapbook" link below or here.

Details and photos of individuals labelled as living are automatically filtered out of the Tree, however a separate list is available here for living people who have permitted or asked for their details to be published.

If you do find errors, conflicts or would like to update your line please let me know. Webmaster

Josiah Grimshaw

Josiah succeeded his father as Master of Ivy House and married Sarah Ibbitson of Ripon.

His name is included in a list of trustees, for land that was provided for building a Quaker Meeting House at Rawdon on 15th February 1697. The list included several other clothiers from Rawdon; Richard Hardaker, Timothy Cooper and Caleb Verity; William Hollings, clothier of Yeadon, and William Butterfield, weaver of Rawdon.

The land originally belonged to Francis Rawdon, whose family conveyed it to Jeremiah, Abraham & Stephen Marshall. The Marshall's then conveyed it to the names above in 1697. Quakers from surrounding parishes were also allowed to meet there and bury their dead in the graveyard.

Josiah was an ancestor of Abraham Grimshaw & Eliza Greaves, found in 1861 census.
