Thomas Snowball of Duggleby, Yorkshire

Thomas Snowball of Duggleby, Yorkshire

In researching my GGGG Grandmother Mary Botterill I found the following in the East Riding Quarter Sessions

Thomas Snowball of Duggleby yeoman and John Hudson of Howsham gent. T.S. in bastardy (Mary Botterill of Scampston singlewoman). QSF/320/C/21 c1788

Mary had an illegitmate son, Snowball Botterill, in 1788 so I am assuming Thomas was the father. Snowball Botterill was my GGG Grandfather.

Does anyone have any information on this Snowball family. Duggleby is very near Kirby Grindalythe in Yorkshire and I have found a baptism for a Thomas Snowball there in 1738, but not sure if it's the same person.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Many thanks - Nikki

Hi Nikki
I actually had posted that info on the message board last Oct 2008 re Thomas Snowball of Duggleby and had a suspicion that Mary Botterill had given birth to Snowball as her son and given him the name of Botterill as his surname. I feel too that then Thomas Botterill is my GGGG Grandfather as Snowball born 1789 is my GGG grandfather. He married Rachel and I am descended from Maria their daughter who married Peter Stuart. Is the same family as yours do you think?

Yes, we have the same family, Snowball's son Thomas was my GG Grandfather - his son, also called Snowball, was my G Grandfather. Just wish I could find out more about the elusive Thomas Snowball!

Hi Tanya

I can remember my Grandma - Mary Botterill (Snowball's daughter) - talking about her father being good with horses. She also told my Mum that one of Snowball's brothers was a jockey in Holland. I haven't been able to find out which one though! My Grandma was always lucky on the horses so maybe it ran in the family!
