|18 June 2002||Pat||My ancestors - Richard and Cicely Metcalfe - lived at a farm called "Eppy Head" in the township of Daleside, Yorkshire. The exact name of the place is confusing as I also have names like Helmsley and Hawnby but understand the place is located about 30km northwest of York City. Apparently there is very little left of the farm house save a few boulders that were once a part of the foundation. Does anyone out there have any photographs of this farm location?|

|10 June 2002||Alan Metcalf, member #1312|| I'm looking for any information on Norman Mt. (my gt gt
grandfather). I have his wedding certificate but not enough information to send
for a birth certificate yet. He was married on 24th. July 1886 at Brentford
Registry Office Middx, where he gave his age as 22 years and his fathers name
is written as John William Mt. (deceased). This marriage certificate is a photo
copy, not a typed copy, never the less I'm still not happy that the name
William is correct, for the following reasons; the bride's father was given as
William Chalk (deceased) which is why I think William has been written twice.
Also because the word "John" has been put in on top of "William
Metcalf". Rather than "John William Metcalf" or with
"Metcalf" on the second line.
I have found two sisters of Norman (Sarah Ann and Mary) on the 1881 census and they said they came from Hull and Sarah was christened in Beverley Yorks.
So in summery I'm looking for Norman Metcalf born 1863 - 1865 his father is John ? Metcalf and Norman was possibly born in Hull. If I can find out where he was born then I can get a birth certificate and solve the William query and at the same time confirm both of his parents.

About two months ago, I had a query from a person in England about a W.H. Metcalfe. My father was W.H. Metcalfe but he was not the same one. I replied to the person but have since lost their email address. The person told me that they were writing a book and wanted to include the W.H. Metcalfe.

If you are that person in England, please contact me or surf the Society website. Good Luck!

|13 Apr 2001||Charles Metcalfe (M305)|| IS THIS OUR ROOT ? Or Do You Recognise the Description?
"There are two very extensive tribes in Britain, the Caledonians and the Maeatae ( ? Metcalfes ? ). The Maeatae dwell close up to the cross-wall which cuts the island in two, the Caledonians beyond them. Both live on wild waterless hills or forlorn and swampy plains, without walls, or towns or husbandry, subsisting on pastoral products and the nuts which they gather. They have fish in plenty but do not eat it. They live in huts, go naked and unshod; make no separate marriages, and rear all their offspring. They mostly have a democratic government, and are much addicted to robbery. They can bear hunger and cold and all manner of hardship; they will retire in to their marshes and hold out for days with only their heads above water, and in the forest they will subsist on bark and roots." - Dio Cassius 200 A.D.
A fair & true translation from the Latin!
