I thought this was an eye-opener –

I grabbed the screenshot above from Seemorerocks this morning but couldn’t find the link just now.

The New Zealand Story seems to have replaced the article.

James Howard Kunstler blogs today –

Despite the sedulous efforts to suppress the data (O, the sacred data!) about the failure of their “vaccines,” the real news is getting out: the “vaccines” don’t prevent transmission or infection of Covid-19, and they pose lethal side-effects for the vaxxed. There it is, in plain English. And yet, “Joe Biden,” putative president of the US, is still telling the country to “go out and get vaccinated, get boosted” — ???

The winter in North East England has been mild and is currently running 64 times hotter than the International Panel on Climate Change would like. There are two reasons not to have a Thunbergian panic. Weather Stations in half of the globe will be “running cool”. And you can see that the fourteen previous Durham Tees winters have warmed by only six IPCC Units, which is a mere 0.13 degrees Centigrade. In 2017 the IPCC estimated the globe had warmed by 1°C since “Pre-Industrial” and hoped we wouldn’t get warmer than 1.5 degrees above P-I by 2040. A steady rise since the beginning of Meteorological Year 2017/18 has brought us to a projected 1.09°C at the end of Week 11. So we are only a couple of teeny weeny units warmer than we should be on “the road to Paris”. Phew.


1795 Staithes · Birth  Esther THIRLBECK is mixed up in some shady genealogical dealings on Filey Genealogy & Connections(FG&C). Her marriage to 58-year-old Robert CAMMISH in 1829 produced no children. Perhaps not surprisingly, this is shown to be Robert’s second marriage – but the St Mary’s Scarborough register in 1829 claims he is a bachelor. Other sources indicate he was actually younger than Esther. On the Shared Tree, one of the eleven sources attached to his record is the 1851 census. It declares he is 48 years old and Esther fifty.

Cammishes are ranked second in Filey with just 13 fewer of them than Jenkinsons. Robert was a popular Cammish given name too, so mix-ups are to be expected. As I go through the year, I’ll look for opportunities to repair the damage.

1775 Filey · Baptism  What ho! Wilson CAMMISH is a brother to the old Robert who supposedly married Esther. Wilson married Elizabeth DARLEY in Filey but the couple set up a home in Scarborough. In 1841 they were enumerated in Parkins Lane, a few doors away from Robert and Esther. That Wilson’s given age was 65 and Robert’s 20 suggests they were not brothers at all. Wilson died in 1842.

1832 Filey · Marriage  Edward STEPHENSON and Mary FENBY had eight children, most of whom married, though only one has taken a spouse so far on the Shared Tree. Thirty or more grandchildren can be expected to appear eventually.

1972 Filey · Death I put Minnie MARRINER on the Shared Tree today with her mother, brother – and the headstone that remembers them (and her father).

1966 Filey · Burial  The headstone that remembers Sarah Ann Cappleman EDMOND is broken into four pieces. Here is the inscription recorded by Jack and Maisie Cammish in 1977 –

In loving memory of WILLIAM CAPPLEMAN, the beloved husband of ANNIE CAPPLEMAN, born Feb 16th 1846, died Mar 10th 1917.

‘In sure and certain hope’

Also of the above ANNIE CAPPLEMAN, born Oct 14th 1861, died Dec 26th 1940.

‘Peace perfect peace’

Also of SARAH ANN CAPPLEMAN EDMOND, died June 5th 1966, aged 91 years.

Unreliable Sources

The FamilySearch Shared Tree  “System” lets you know when there are no sources attached to an individual’s record. A forebear on the Tree without a single source could have been put with the true parents in the right location and given the correct dates of birth, marriage and death. Another with a handful of sources attached could be a wrong ‘un.

Today’s Anniversaries provide some examples.

1791 Filey · Marriage  I began with a source declaring that Matthew CRAWFORD, son of Matthew and Ann née WAFF, married Mary CROMPTON in Filey St Oswald’s church on 15 February 1791.

Matthew is “Crowfoot” here, with Mary “Crumpton”. On the Shared Tree, the marriage took place four days earlier.

But two sources transcribed by FamilySearch have been attached to Matthew’s record offering 11 February a year earlier.

More concerning is that Matthew Crowfoot/Crawford is shown to have an older brother called “Mathew Crawforth”. Can this be right? For two brothers with the same given name (more or less) to marry within a few years of each other would be unusual. The screenshot below should be a caution.

Paull is only forty miles from Filey but it would be the strangest thing for Ann Waff to have had a child there. She may have gone through life without knowing the place existed. None of the five sources attached to Mathew the Elder offer clues to his parentage, or a connection to Filey.

1857 Filey · Burial  Sarah SKELTON married William FENBY in Kilham when she was 21 years old. William, an agricultural labourer, was about fourteen years older. The 26 sources attached to Sarah’s record on the Shared Tree capture her eleven children convincingly but her birth information is problematic. Baptism in Felixkirk with Boltby in 1769 does not fit with her being “of Kilham” at marriage, and giving Filey as her birthplace on the 1851 census return. In 1857, her death registration and the parish burial entry both give her age as 82.

A Find My Past contributor makes a case for Sarah being the daughter of Robert Skelton and Margaret RICKMAN. Sarah baptising two sons “Rickman” and “Skelton” seals the deal for me.

I wonder what happened to Sarah of Felixkirk.

1912 Filey · Death  Ann BAXTER, a single woman, was almost fifty when her only son drowned whilst fishing off the coast near Hornsea. For most of the next thirty years, she lived alone, never straying far from Chapel Yard. The year before her death, she was with her niece Mary Jane JENKINSON and brother in law Matthew “Walsher” Jenkinson at 1 Chapel Yard. I have put the stone that remembers Ann and her son Frank on the Shared Tree.
