1 thought on “Bell of Thirsk”

  1. The Bells of Thirsk first appear in the records with the marriage of John Bell and Elizabeth Hasselbury 23rd July 1542
    A Henry Bell was first granted land at Fawdington near Thirsk in mid 1500, some names appear to match Bells from the Dent and Askrigg areasof Yorkshire, but don’t know if this is significant.
    Current indications are that the Bells from Dent and Askrigg had relatives spread far and wide across England, to points as far away as Norfolk, this is also supported by DNA results matched to paper records.

    The earliest Bell births at Thirsk seem to be in the 1570’s which predates claims that the Bells cannot be traced back this far due to an adoption, the adoption referred to would effect one line of descendancy and there are about 6 or more other lines of descendancy from Thirsk, which all predate this adoption as I recall.
