|My maiden name was Bratherton, and other roots include Honeyman, Moffat, Cormack, Emery, Bell and
Moadsley. I've been trying to collect information about my family, especially

mother's side of the family are Honeymans, such as
The Honeyman global genealogy includes 2417 individuals (last time I looked) and the info from the book: 'The Honeyman Family (Honeyman, Honyman, Hunneman, Etc) In Scotland and America.' 1548-1908 by A.

My third cousin Richard Sharples of Hexham, Northumberland, great-grandson of Alderman John Bratherton's sister Margaret, would also be interested to hear from anyone researching the Bratherton family. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org .
