Kevin Langley asks
I'm seeking information and photos of the Barfoot family. My great grandfather's sister Elizabeth ("Lizzie") married Fred Barfoot and they moved to Hunslet in 1899. In 1911 they were living at Wright Street, off Balm Road. Later they moved to Belle Isle. Fred was a loco driver at Middleton colliery. I'm particularly seeking a photo of Lizzie (died in 1939), Fred (died in the 1950s) or their children: Fred Langley, William, Louisa (married Albert Brown), Ellen ("Nellie", married Walter Kerry), Walter, Edward, John and Sam.
Kevin lives in Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.
Elizabeth Lee was born c.1796 in Hunslet, and married Jonathan Green, a miner, at St Peters in 1818. In 1851 they were living at Pettys Fold (in Hunslet or Beeston) with their two sons, who had been baptised in Hunslet: William Green(baptised 19 Nov 1820) became a miner and later dug wells or bores, and George Green (baptised 8th Dec.1822) who was also a miner. The couple had a further 6 children, all baptised in Beeston.
Any information about this family or contact from family members would be appreciated.

Jordan Smith asks
Has anyone any more information on the player Fred Smith (photo below) who played in the Hunslet RLFC team that won all four cups. I believe that Fred is in my family tree and is my grandfather's great grandfather. He played for Hunslet from 1905 to 1920 and played a few matches for England and Great Britain. It would be really appreciated.
John Pailing asks
I am hoping someone might know if there were any children born from the marriage of John W. Pailing (my father) and Beatrice Pailing, nee Fallon. They were married from 1936 until 1949. I believe that Beatrice was a landlady on Pepper Road.
I'm hoping that I may have a half brother or sister, as I was an only child.
