Idle google map

This is where Thomas and Emma WATMOUGH lived with their family in 1871. ~ They lived on New Brighton in the township of Idle in Yorkshire County, England. You can even click on this graphic to be taken to an interactive map, so you can explore the area further!

My hubby’s second great-grandfather, Thomas WATMOUGH, was born about 1838 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England to Joseph WATMOUGH (1796-1869) and Sarah (b. 1799).  He died in December 1909 in West Riding, Yorkshire, England.

My hubby’s second great-grandmother, Emma KEITHLEY, was born about 1841 in Thackley, Yorkshire, England.  Some people think that her parents were John Phillips KIGHTLY and Mary GOODLEY, but I am not extremely confident in that yet.
