Hi, I'm trying to make contact with anyone who is researching the Popeley name in the Birstall area. I have an original vellum manuscript from 1583 - a legal document re land transfer between Robert Popeley of Popeley and Robert & George Appleyerde of Gildersome. This manuscript, which is the Popeley half of the full document, turned up in my secondhand bookshop in Australia and I have been researching it for the last 8 months. I now know how it came to Australia and specifically to my bookshop. I have been researching parish records online to see if there is a family link between Robert Popeley and Reuben Brown of Morley (who owned the deed in 1916) but haven't had any luck so far (there are a lot of generations in 330 years). I'm visiting Morley next month to further research the saga and would love to find someone with Popeleys in their ancestry to chat with. Also does anyone know if the parish records for St Peter, Birstall at WYAS Wakefield are more complete than what's available on Ancestry? thanks & best wishes, Lorraine
