Libby Seekings has given the detailed answer to Pam's enquiry but it may be
worth mentioning that there is some information on the Oates family in "Far
Headingley, Weetwood and West Park" by David Hall (foreword by Alan Bennett) and
published by the Far Headingley Village Society, 2000, ISBN 0 9539312 0 X.
It also makes some mention of Meanwood as the half of Meanwood to the west of
Meanwood Beck was in the chapelry of Headingley until 1849. Families mentioned
include the Brudenells, Cardigans and the Becketts (bankers) and the book
touches on some of the notables whose orbits touched theirs (Alice Keppel,
Violet Trefusis, Arthur Ransome, Prince Alamayou and Vita Sackville-West).
Definitely worth a read if you have interests in the outer suburbs of north-west

Subject: [YKS] CAPT. OATES
| Dear Listers, I have searched the Internet with Google for Capt. Lawrence
| Edward "Titus" OATES, who went on Capt Robert Falcon SCOTT's ill-fated 1912
| Expedition to the Antarctic and left the hut with the casual remark: "I may
| be some time", but despite a lot of links to articles about him have been
| unable to find his birthplace, which I believe to be Yorkshire. No-one
| answered my previous question to Yorksgen but surely Roy would know. I
| think it was another journalist, my Grandfather, P.A. Representative for
| Leeds, who told me when I was a child that Capt. OATES was a Yorkshireman.
| Can anyone confirm this? Regards, Pam SMITH, Brisbane, Australia.
