Ipstones Families

See the Stoke Families page for later generations.

These pages cover the maternal line of Pam's father Jack EATON. Related individuals include Samuel Clowes MP, Alderman Harold Clowes and Alderman Mrs Doris Robinson. The extensive family tree of Harold Clowes displayed in the parish church of St.Leonard, Ipstones suggests that common ancestry can be traced to the birth in Ipstones of Robert CLOWES from whom the line descends to Pam's third great grandfather William Clowes who left Ipstones to farm at Bucknall.

Clicking      against a name takes you to the relevant family tree page for that individual.
