Good morning Carol..It seems that the present Church at Coton was built in 1846. to replace the original one which was on a different site....It may be that earlier records from that church do not survive. I have spoken to Matlock Records Office and they think that to be very possible...and any graveyard attached to the original church is long gone.......sorry..

Hi everybody......I have begun photographing Headstones in whatever Derbyshire village i if you have any particular interest..let me know and I'll see what i can find for you.

Morning Derek. If you visit St.Wystans, Repton.wear your wellies it can be rather damp LOL. I know as OH and I wandered around there last summer. Unfortunately loads of headstones are under the trees at far side and are impossible to get to. I bet that is where some of my Measham lot are hiding. LOL.

Edit.. If anyone would like to know if their rellies gravestones are in Repton don't forget that I have the St.Wystans full entry of monuments in Book form and would be willing to look if the headstone is there for them and give them the plot number

Hi Derek
I only just came across your thread about Derbyshire records. I have been doing some research on my family.

My great grandfather Tom (I assume short for Thomas) Watson and his wife Rebecca had all their 7 children in Belper (I was always told Knowts Cottage, Golden Valley, Alfreton,) but registration records show it to be Belper. Family folklore has always stated that Rebecca was a foundling (orphanage brought her up) so I hit a brick wall there, but her birth name (from looking up her children) comes up as Deakin/Daykin/Beakin (which I put down to transcription errors). Can't find any record of a marriage between Tom and Rebecca but would be grateful for any help you might be able to give.


Derek Report 29 Apr 2010 12:25

Hi Alison,I can no doubt help..but i do need some dates..preferably of Births and/or marriages.



Derek Report 30 Apr 2010 12:11

Hello Mark.....thanks for your PM.

ROBERT TRICKETT 1826 from Rossendale Burnley Lancs..married ESTHER FIELDING also from Burnley..and moved to Derbyshire at some point.....They are at Hayfield 1881.1891.....Esther clearly died, and in 1897 at the age of 71 he married Martha Gregson from lancashire..and they are on the 1901 Hayfield Census.

John Trickett 1846..I haven't got around to yet..but he died 1907 Chapel-en-le Frith.........

He had a brother Benjamin who also came to the Hayfield/Glossop area....

More as you require it ....



Mark Report 30 Apr 2010 13:11

Hello Derek.. Finally found you

As per email message

I am enquiring as to whether you may have information on church yards and in particular burial in Derbyshire. I am trying to locate the whereabouts of my 2x and 3x great grandfathers.

John Trickett 1849-1907 my 2x times great Grandfather
Robert Trickett 1826-1907 my 3x great Grandfather

Should you need any further details please let me know

Many thanks


Derek Report 30 Apr 2010 13:19

Hi now you can read the message i left you..and if you require some details of the Trickett family before 1901..then ask.



Mark Report 30 Apr 2010 13:37

Would you have any details in your data with regards to James Trickett and Margaret (Peggy Holt) who i am yet to prove are the parents of Robert Trickett 1826. James on the 1841-51 census is shown as a farmer. Deceased sometime between 51-61 census

Mark Report 30 Apr 2010 14:21

Thank you so much its good to have confirmation from a new set of eyes ;)


Derek Report 30 Apr 2010 19:57

Hello Carebear....I'm sorry..none of these peope appear in Derbyshire.....and Hemsworth is near Pontefract in Yorkshire and fitzwilli ma is on Ackworth Moor a couple of miles away. I don't have any West Yorkshire records..

Sorry..take care



Derek Report 30 Apr 2010 20:09

Google.......always Google.

In this case Google "Genuki Hemsworth"..a scroll down will give you a start..

Also Yorkshire BMD's is a free site..but probably doesn't include Hemsworth.

You can Google almost anything..a name a place or whtever...sometimes it comes up trumps..and if you have a place like Hemsworth..sticj "Genuki" in front of it.

Thankyou very much for your guidance Carebear


Alison Report 3 May 2010 19:38

Hi Derek
The WATSONs - As far as I can tell the oldest son Horace was born in 1911 and they had another 6 surviving children between then and 1927, all but the last one being registered in Belper. The children were Horace, Margaret (middle nameLililan, known as Lil), Sarah (known as Sally), Betty, Laura (known as Ann) and Tommy.
I know Rebecca died in Nottingham around 1961ish, but I can't find any Tom or Thomas Watson marrying a Rebecca Deakin in Belper in the years before 1911 when their first son was born.
Appreciate any help you can give. thanks


Derek Report 3 May 2010 21:03

Hi Alison..I don't have anything after 1911...and I can't find he marriage, which looks as though it took place after 1901......but I'll have a look for you at Matlock.



Derek Report 3 May 2010 21:06
