Having started this page I realize it's time I put some more effort into this family!!
The first known Fleetham in our tree, to date, is one Robert Fleetham who I estimate to be born around the late 1740's. His parentage is a bit of guesswork as Ainderby Steeple is a nearby parish. This colour indicates no living offspring.
As at Ainderby Steeple Church is:
Michael son of Thomas and Sarah c. 9 Apr 1751
William son of William and Jane c. 10 Apr 1752
Alice daughter of William and Jane c. 14 Nov 1730
