In addition, I thank Cathy Chapman of Bradford for information on the village of Scholes in Cleckheaton, Stafford Scholes of Co. Durham, and the late Edward Skoyles; and in the USA Jaira Scoles Hill of Oregon and Ellen Kotzin of New York State. Also to the following:

Suggestions for new material would be of great help to improve and extend its scope for the interests of the Scholes community world-wide. Stories about early Scholes families or prominent individuals would be especially welcome.

Contributions to Fred Scholes’ Ancestral Database should include source references.
