Looking for family of Margaret Hastwell who was married to James Faraday of Clapham, Yorks.
James Faraday was a blacksmith born 8 May 1761. James married Margaret Hastwell 1n 1786, at Clapham, Yorkshire. Soon after their marriage the family moved to Newington, London, where James was employed as a blacksmith. The family were members of the Sandemanian congregation, consequently there are no church records to research. Unless you know differently.
Margaret Hastwell was a farmer's daughter and her family were domiciled in the Clapham area of Yorkshire.
If there is anyone who has any details of the above family, it would be much appreciated if I could discuss the details with them.

I was born 31/05/1929 at Burnley, Lancashire, and was educated at Burnley Grammar School, and Balshaw's Grammar School. Leyland Lancashire.

I have been retired since 1989. I have a younger brother: Harry born 1944. He has two daughters.
