Sources: Tracking Anthony Gilderdale on FamilySearch pulls up a marriage between
an Anthony Gilderdale & Ann Smith/Smike in Hook, Yorkshire 1701. It also pulls
up a son Anthony born in Hook 1705 to Anthony Gilderdale (no mother listed).
When this information is checked in the British Isles Vital Records Index (
Source: FHL Number 1545697, Dates: 1678-1785) the DOB is given as 1704,
christened 14 Feb 1704. Anne Smith/Smike is actually Smith. The Index also lists
3 other children for Anthony Gilderdale (Jone 1701, Robert 1703 & Thomas 1706).
Thorne & Snaith Parishes are next to each other - it is possible that these
Anthonys are ancestors of our Catherine, born in Thorne - it would be the right
generational gap if so. An additional factor is the reappearences of the names
Robert & Anthony.
Sources: Following down the chain, through FamilySearch & the Index, I believe
that Anthony & Ann had Anthony 1704 who married ?? (abt 1724). Their son Anthony
was born soon after. He married ?? around 1746/47. Their first child Robert (b.
1747, c 22 Apr 1747) married Anne Howard 18 Jan 1770. He is recorded in the
FamilySearch records as the son of Anthony (b 1771) & Susannah Sykes (b 1775),
along with William & Susannah. I think this is an error, & possibly Anthony is
Robert's son (or even nephew). I also think that only Susannah is the actual
child of Anthony & Susannah.
MARRIAGE: In all likelyhood, Robert was married in St Nicholas's Church, Thorne,
