      Many thanks for your email. I live in Strensall which is 5 miles north of York, England. This is the heart of Ridsdale country and living locally has enabled me to search the archives in the Borthwick Institute at York University as well as the records at the North Yorkshire Record Office (NYRO) at Northallerton.

      Richard was born abt 1768 at Thornton-le-Street, according to the 1851 census. His wife Grace Pape was born at Gilling and bapt on 28 Sep 1766. The couple married on 20 May 1786 at Gilling and were later buried together there. The couple had 7 known children with another unconfirmed.

      Grace had a brother called Edward who was a yeoman farmer at Syke Gate Farm, which is equidistant between Coulton and Cawton. Richard is described in the Hovingham parish register as "Richard Ridsdale of Coulton" and I think he was probably working at Syke Gate when their son Thomas and his siblings were born. Richard and Grace's eldest grandchild was also born at Syke Gate. There were two farm houses on the property, which would have enabled Richard, Grace and their family to live separately from Edward and his wife.

      Richard later farmed at Flower of May in Husthwaite until he retired. The farm was taken over by his son-in-law Thomas Morrill and Richard continued to live there until his death. He lived to the grand old age of 94, dying on 13 Feb 1858. Grace had died on 9 Nov 1816. In the photograph of their grave at Gilling, the lettering has survived because the angle of the stone has protected it from weathering.

      I'm almost sure that I've traced Richard's parents and possibly his grandparents as well but I need to do further research on this before I feel happy sharing it. They came from the North Otterington/Thornton-le-Street area of Cleveland.

      I've attached a copy of Richard Ridsdale's tree for you - it opens in Adobe Acrobat. As you can see, the Ridsdales spread across Yorkshire and overseas. The original information on the Doncaster branch of the family was provided by a contact in Australia, which I have expanded a little.
      Best wishes
