My latest DALES adventures in research...

In December, I should have a copy of the Horton in Ribblesdale parish registers on Microfilm from the North Riding Record Office. A friend of mine will bring it back with him from England.

I am actually really excited for these records as it will allow me to work on the PROCTER and other connected families. I believe that the Procters will ultimately turn out to be a very fascinating family when I piece all of them together within the parish.

I am considering purchasing the marriage index for Procters (and related surnames) from Horton in Ribblesdale. It will be about 16 US Dollars but could be well worth it. It could help me provide a framework for those families as I piece them together.

Right now I'm in the mid 1600's with the Procter family but I need to find the baptism entries for a few of the members of my line. I have been very lucky to find probates.

This is a website of court records:

I have found a dozen connections with the Procters of Horton in Ribblesdale. Even a few which I believe fit into my line. I am very excited about looking into them. :)
