The Myers depicted in this family tree are descendants from Francis Myers c1728 and Sarah Emmerson c1736. Francis married Sarah Emmerson in Rotherham in 1757 and thereafter had four sons that we know of; Joseph, Edward, Francis and William.
Having looked at the Darfield records, we can find no trace of Myers births before 1750, however, there is a Francis baptised in Barnsley in 1728. Barnsley is 5 miles from Wombwell and it is not too far a stretch to assume that he might be our Francis. Jane and I have, therefore, included his parents and siblings in the lineage.
Joseph died in 1762 and was survived by his three brothers to adulthood. This significantly large Myers tree can be traced back to these three brothers. The families lived in and around Masbrough and Kimberworth but spread and settled during the 19th century to Leeds, Sheffield, Barnsley, The Potteries, Scarborough, North America, South Africa and Australasia.
