My wife is descended from the Ellerker family of KMS. Her line were gardeners, and appear in the 1841-1891 censuses. We've also noted several other Ellerker families with the occupation of roper. Does anyone know the connection between these families, and/or the Ellerker history before 1841 ?
I live in Piercy End,Kirkbymoorside.My house (I bought in 1980) ued to belong to John Ellerker who had been a market gardener.On old maps my garden path is marked as "Rope Walk" as this is apparently where the rope maker used to walk twisting and making their ropes.There are several Ellerkers in Kirkbymoorside.I suggest you try directory enquiries or electoral roll(held at Ryedale House,Malton.)
John Ellerker died in 1979.Although it's a long time since I looked at my house deeds I seem to remember that Ellerkers lived in this house and the one next door for about 100 years.
Does any of this help you.
Diane, My aunt was raise in the house next door,
Her name was Mary Elizabeth Ellerker daughter of Ernest Ellerker and Christina Ford. She now resides in Big River Saskatchewan Canada. Her family where market gardeners.
My mother came from Kirby in 46. Her father Ernest Ellerker was a rope make/saddler, there was also a great Uncle called Kit. ( christopher) that operated a green house/ market gardens. I would be pleased if I could make contact with other family, I didn't realize that there were other Ellerker family than my mother Mary Elizabeth and my Uncle Robert.
My mother was also an Ellerker prior to marriage. She is Frances and has three sisters Marjorie dorothy and Kathleen. Marjorie still lives in Kirbymoorside. Their father was Francis William Ellerker and he was the postman in Kirbymoorside, he died in 1972. He had a sister Elizabeth and their parents were John and Mary Ellerker. John had a brother Christopher and a sister Elizabeth. I think their parents were George and Martha.
Just read your message about your connection with the Ellerkers of Kirkbymoorside. I am the brother in law of Dorothy Ellerker . She is married to my brother and she still resides in Pickering . If I can assist with any information please ask.
I am part of the Ellerker family and would like to know about:
Why did the Ellerker's migrate from England?
When did they arrive from England in Australia?
Who started the Ellerker Family?
This is an assignment for my school which I will need to hand in by this Friday, 13 Jan.
My father has lost the Ellerker family tree and I am trying to replace what he had lost. If any of you have the Ellerker family tree please send it to my email where you can get if you click on my name. Thanks a lot and I will be really grateful.
