Hi Carol,

No you are not greedy. I'll do that for you this week and the one from march I must have forgot to do it, think my memory is going getting old (52) :-(.



Carol Report 23 Apr 2012 20:20

Hi Wendy

If you have the time I would like another marriage look up please.
I already have one request in from the 29th March, so sorry to be greedy again.

Selston 6 Aug 1855
Hannah Hill & Joseph Hickson

By the way, I did take out a weeks subcription on the British Newpaper site.
It was the best £10 I ever spent !! Found so much

Wendy that was quick. Looks like they may be his grand parents. He is with them in 1841 and also a Harriett Bartrop age 10 and then in 1851 when he is recorded as a grandson to them..

Many thanks, Jennifer


Wendy Report 23 Apr 2012 18:29

Hi Jennifer,

They married at St Marys Worksop 30 Jan 1860 so will see who he has down for father.

Also there was a William Bartrop and Sarah Bark married on 10 Dec 1812 at Worksop St Mary's.

Will get back to you when I have more.


RutlandBelle Report 23 Apr 2012 18:09

Wendy can I prevail on your good nature again please.

I have William Bartrop born c 1834 Walkeringham, Notts. He was a Shoe maker by trade. He is never with his parents on the census only grandparents William b 1785 Worksop and his wife Sarah b 1788 Honeysecks, (that's what it looks like on census but no idea where it is) Derbyshire.

He married Charlotte ??Keightley in early 1860 , Worksop .

Anything that would give his parent's names would be wonderful.

Many thanks in advance Jennifer

hi Derek,

Yes form late 1837 people could marry in Register Offices or just a thought maybe they married in a Baptist, Methodist Roman Catholic Chapels, I will see what records the archives hold on those.

Derek Report 23 Apr 2012 10:33

Hello Wendy..thanks for your efforts...........I presume that by 1915 people didnot have to marry in Church.which appears obvious in this case..

Keep up the good work.



Wendy Report 23 Apr 2012 10:24

Hi Derek,

Hope you are keeping on eye on this thread. I have now managed to look though all Mansfield Churches for the Marriage of Frank Witham and Annie Surgey 1915 that you ask for but its not in any of them so again I think its best for your connect to buy the certificate but I'll keep on eye out in case it pops up else where.

Sorry about that.



littlelegs Report 19 Apr 2012 16:52

hi wendy
thank you


Wendy Report 19 Apr 2012 15:21

Hi Lorraine,

1970's would be the Cemetery I don't have them on CD but will check the records at the archives when I'm next there, but its more likely to be at Bulwell Cemetery or Wilford Hill.



littlelegs Report 18 Apr 2012 13:36

hi wendy

Carol Report 29 Mar 2012 13:24

Hello again Wendy

Could you please do a quick marriage look up for me when you next go to Nottingham. Any additional info would be great.

30.7.1810 at St Wilfrids, Kirkby in Ashfield
William Cowlishaw & Elizabeth Bonsal

Thanks very much

Hi Wendy
Thomas Atkinson married to Fanny, she remarried after his death to William Brownlow. Not sure why they are in same grave ?
Henry Atkinson died aged 2 33 Rawson St, Florence and Gertrude could well be his sister's . He was born 3 years after parents marriage [unusal in those days ]
Ethel died aged 7 she was a twin and died after night dress caught fire
John is the correct age to be the one i think is Henry and Thomas's father
I still have to confirm Henry's death, 1904 i think, they lived Bobersmill Road , Basford at that time
Hannah Maria died 1940 and is buried in Nottm General Cemetery. This helps to find the 5 children who died .
Serena :-)


Derek Report 24 Mar 2012 14:35

Hi Derek,

Just to let you know I've started to look though Mansfield churches for the Marriage of Frank Witham and Annie Surgey. I've done St Mary Sutton in Ashfield and most of Mansfields churches but haven't found it yet.



Wendy Report 20 Mar 2012 06:07

HI Serena,

Sorry had to go off-line yesterday. I must have read the 1881 census wrong. So it does look like the same family then, I'll see what I can find at the archives for you.



Serena Report 19 Mar 2012 15:52

Hi Wendy,
Thomas was married to Fanny, 1881 they lived 21 Rawson Street. 1891 living 49 Rye Street, Basford he was listed as imbecile on census.

Fanny remarried 1892

1881 Henry and Maria at 33 Rawson Street
1881 John Atkinson 37 Rawson Street, Coal Miner. Henry married 1877, Thomas 1878. Could John have become a miner after 1871 ??

This is driving me crazy. I cann't find any christening records for Henry and Maria's children so i assume the weren't christened, they also had 7 children who died i can only find 2 of them !!!!

Thanks for looking
