FOREFATHERS : A History of the Working class Beaumonts of West Riding, Yorkshire [Volume One : Descendants of Abraham Beaumont of Deershaw] by Diana and Michael Beaumont. 1998, Heritage Books, Inc., 226 pages. Much has been written about the Beaumont nobility in Yorkshire - the landed gentry, such as the Beaumonts of Lascelles Hall - but there is little that tells of the difficult and often impoverished lives of those Beaumonts who lived outside the manor house walls. The working-class Beaumonts were ordinary men and women who were honest Quakers, woolen weavers, stone delvers, and steelworkers. This book is the first volume about the Beaumonts of West Riding, Yorkshire, England, and follows the descendents of Abraham Beaumont (1703-1770) and Ann Ellis (1708-1789) of Deershaw through the end of the nineteenth century. Sequentially, beginning with the oldest child of each generation, the line is followed to its end before returning to the next oldest child, following to the end of that line, and so on. Each chapter begins with a family group comprised of father, mother, their individual vital statistics, marriage information, and children, and shows how the group fits together into the larger family tree. There follows a narrative text which makes use of maps, censuses and photographic material. Extensive footnotes provide source documentation and miscellaneous detail and appear at the end of each chapter. Included are a full name index and bibliography for further reading and reference.
