Thomas and Thomasin KNAGGS of Flamborough

I was delighted to hear from Heather Port at on Sunday.

We share Thomas and Thomasin KNAGGS as our  3 x Great Grandparents.  Heather’s line goes  through their son William who was born in 1827.  Heather thinks that Thomas`s parents were William Knaggs(whose parents were George Knaggs and Hannah Dobson) and Ann Cammidge and Thomasin was the illegitimate daughter of Hannah Pockley.  All of them appear to have been born in Flamborough.    (See the photo of Flamborough Headland from

Heather is the first KNAGGs researcher to have been in contact with me who is actually related directly, so this was great news.  I already have a couple of pages about them on my CUMPSTON website at page and but shall now set up a new blog to do further work on them.
