Yorkshire and Westmorland Capsticks

(A joint project of Edmund Robert (Bob) Capstick and E.A. (Ann) Capstick)

I am indebted to many people for the information on these pages: to my father, Edward Alfred (Ted) Capstick, for the initial research in Crosby Garrett, Westmorland; to my father's first cousin, Kay (Day) MacDonald, for lending me the Jonathan Locke, John Locke, and Capstick Bibles; to the members of the YORKSGEN list, particularly Marion Young, who gave me the link from Westmorland to Yorkshire; and especially to Edmund Robert (Bob) Capstick, my fifth cousin once removed, whose extensive research has provided virtually all the Yorkshire information. Nonetheless, any omissions or errors are entirely my own and can be reported to Ann Capstick

I'd like to make it clear that these pages would not be here had I not been able to make contact with my cousin Bob through his page on Family Tree Maker. Bob has been invaluable, not only in providing the basic research, but also in proofing pages and confirming information from others. Neither I nor my father did any primary research in Yorkshire, so if you find a connection please write to Bob; he has been researching CAPSTICKs in Yorkshire and beyond since 1973. My only contribution is the presentation of this data in HTML format. Even if you don't find a connection, Bob would be interested in any CAPSTICKs who have been involved with law enforcement
