My grandfather was born in 1898. His birth certificate shows his
place of birth as - Harrisons Yard, Bramley U.D. The Registration
District is shown as Bramley in the County of Leeds. My book of
english counties doesn't show a county of Leeds. Various searches
have found Bramleys in South Yorkshire, Hampshire and Surrey. Just to
confuse things his certificate of discharge papers from service
aboard the good ship Moreton Bay show his place of birth as
Manchester, not to mention the fact that he used the name Frank J
Paton in lieu of his real name, James Paton Downing.
Can anyone throw some light on where he was born?
