View Full Version : Long line of tailors.

27-06-2009, 3:40 PM
My Amos ancestors were a long line of Master Tailors.
The earliest ancestor I can find is John Amos who was born c1727, I know not where. He was living in the Elsdon area of Northumberland by the mid 1700's.
Would there be some sort of trade listing available from this time?
I have not been able to locate the birth place of John but it would help if I could locate where he was before Elsdon.
I have found a John Amos born 1728 son of Andrew Amos a tailor from Scotland but don't know how I could confirm if this is my John.
Andrew is a Amos family name and Elsdon is very close to the Scottish borders.
Could anyone advise me on where I can go from here please?
Thanks Erin
