Nudge for Charlotte

Hi gill..sorry .they do not..plenty of morrod burials after 1837 though!!


Gill Report 16 Sep 2009 22:37

Hiya Derek

Don't suppose your other "irons" include Sculcoates burials do they?

But if they do, I'm looking for the burial of Jane MORROD twixt 1815 and 1830. She was the first wife of the Charles MORROD.



Derek Report 16 Sep 2009 19:55

Hi're welcome..whilst my Parish Records are limited. i do have many other irons in the fire. So if you need any mjore help..I'll at least try .



Gill Report 16 Sep 2009 17:57

Hi Derek

All those Morrad & Medd marriages.......that is absolutely fantastic!.

Thank you so much

Really appreciated



Derek Report 16 Sep 2009 15:09

Hi again Charlotte..this is an update to the message below......
I think I've cracked part of the puzzle......

Nathaniel Bell (mentioned below) 1771-1842 of Gilberdyke Mill was the father of:
Nathaniel Bell 1809-1898 whose daughter Elizabeth Bell (1842-1895) married James Harrison born 1835

Bell Harrison was their son.born 1869

He married a Mary and in 1901 had two small children Elsie and irene.

Curious thing is that in 1901 they were living next door to:

James Harrison (born 1871) and his "brother" (brother-in-law?) HARRISON ARTHUR STATHER!!! aged 16 born December 1883

There is another Harrison A Stather born in the village March 1906

I have also found Charles Stather 1883 and a brother John Stather 1880..with a mother Hannah........this may not be the right one becasue there is no mention of Harrison Arthur.

I have a lot of children.and links that i need to sort out..but I need you to tell me which if any of all this is familiar to you.



Derek Report 16 Sep 2009 14:41

Hi Charlotte...I need a christian name for Bell Harrison.....but cannot find James Bell harrison at the moment.

Have been digging into the Bells the Harrisons and the Stathers..and the Bell Harrisons! as you say..very complicated.

What I can tell you is that the first owners of the Gilberdyke Mill were Nathaniel Bell and his son nathaniel junior..In 1851 Nathaniel senior was 79 and his son 40. Nathaniel junior died in 1898

The bell's were followed by the Stathers.....Harrison Stather followed by his son J.Stather

I'll dig deeper..but I have found an old photo of Gilberdyke Mill and a very poor on of the Bell Harrison family.

Let me know if you know of these.

I'm digging further.

Hi Valerie..dates would be very helpful...and please note, my records are very specific in terms of dates.....I hve no others outside these dates........



Valerie Report 21 Jun 2009 11:51

Most of my family started in Danby but move down to Hull living in the Sculcoates area. Any information you could help me with would be great.
The family tree I am doing is Nellist.. Many thanks Val


Derek Report 12 Mar 2009 22:59

Julie...unfortunately the Holy trinity records are not on the disc.......I'll have a dig around fro youDerek


Derek Report 12 Mar 2009 20:05

Hi Shemp....nice to hear from you again after so long.
At the moment I only have marriages 1830-1837 at Sculcoates.
This may fit in somewhere:

Robert Beadling married Ruth Briggs 23.02.1837

William Beadling (Widower) a seaman married Ann Foster (Spinster) 23.01.1832

In the Hull Holy Trinity records (Baptisms 1792-1812) there is a family that may be of interest to you:-

William Beadling and Elizabeth had the following children:
George 10.09.1802
Mary Ann 17.10.1804
Maria 11.10.1806
Thomas 13.07.1808
Henry 10.01.1810 (born 23.11.1809)

That is the onlky family in those particular records.

I also have a disc of about 20 East Riding Parishes 1530.1812..but Holy Trinity is not one of them, Sculcoates asnd Drypool are there..but Beadlings at all.

As this thread appears to be quite popular i will increase my records in the near future.
But my greatest love is still Derbyshire!

All the best

Thanks again Chris

Hi derek,

Thanks for looking anyway.



Julie Report 12 Mar 2009 10:35

Many Thanks Derek

I know the Parish records you have do not cover it but does the disc cover marriages in 1817 ? - I wondered if Ann and John's parents were mentioned on it. Or is Nathaniel and Margaret's marriage on it?



Gigi Report 12 Mar 2009 07:26

Thanks Derek.
