Starting Over : Nidderdale Skaifes

Dear All

My name is John Jackson .

My paternal family were from Nidderdale in Yorkshire

My paternal grandmother was Alice Jackson once Alice Elizabeth Scaife born in 1900 . I was brought up with regular trips toBraisty Woods and Brimham which clearly have a huge signicance to the Nidderdale family . I remember tales of a family bible and links to Fountains Abbey and legendary figure called "Uncle Smith "

I have read information casting the family tree back Tao olden times but am interested in pricing together what happened from 1900 to around 1981 when Alice Elizabeth died and once I have that moving on from there.

Please contact me if you can help or indeed want to chat.

Alice Skaife

Very interesting. I was unable to find an Alice Elizabeth Skaife but did find an Alice Emma Skaife. It looks like she married a William Jackson in 1927 at Pateley Bridge and died as Alice Emma Jackson in Leeds in 1982 having been born Aug 6 1900. Does this sound like it is your grandmother or not?
