I too an decended from the Coates family of Hollinsclough. My Great Grandfather was Christopher Coates B 1854. I have traced the family line back to Dinah Coates B b1762 D 1857. I have a record of John Coates B 1843. Which line of the family are you from. Who was your Great Grandfather. I have got some pictures of Coates Town taken only last week if you are interested in me sending them to you. I also have a full family tree for the family. I checked on the 1901 cencus and wondered what had happened to the Coates's - now I know. Please let me know any further information that you have.

My Dad was Harry Gladstone Coates. He was born in Hollinclough to James Henry Coates. John Coates is his brother, which would make John my Uncle. My Dad was one of the children put up for adoption when James Henry Coates died. I was born and lived in Ogden, Utah. I have some information on the family tree that a friend researched for me. I am now living in Texas. Email is:
