Derek,

Do you do Mellor and Glossop? if so I'm looking for the marriage of John Braddock to Mary Beard in 1747 in Glossop and John Braddock to Elizabeth Collier in 1774 in Mellor or Glossop.

But basically any Braddocks in Derbyshire.

Thanks Heather

Hi Derek,

I'm afraid my request might be just a tad too vague but here goes.

My husband's great grandmother was born c1862 in Derbyshire (her age is judged by answers she gives on the censuses). Her name was Emma Colledge and her parents William or Charles Colledge and Ann (he gives both names on different censuses). I've been looking for her for years and hit brick walls every time. From 1881 she is with her husband William Henry Shaw living in Yorkshire. I can't find her or her parents on the 1861 or 1871.

Best Wishes,

Jubal

Hi Derek,

Would you be so kind as to help with this family I am tracing and chasing...

Samuel Winchester and Elizabeth Morley marry ,2 Dec 1794 in Chesterfield. They have at least 2 children ,Julia b 1796 who later marries Henry Harley in 1814 ( have done extensive research for Julia) and Thomas bc 1799 and I think he marries a Sarah Porter, but have no children as she dies very soon after the marriage.

I am stuck for info on Samuel and Elizabeth and would love and info/help you may find.

Look forward to hearing from you, and thanking you ...

Cheers.

Hi Derek,

One of my direct ancestors, Hannah White was born in North Wingfield in 1736. I beleive that her parents were Robert white born in Tupton 1708 and Ann (surname unknown) born in Tupton 1712.

Would it be possible to confirm these birth years and also find a marriage and maiden name for Ann

Many thanks inanticipation,

Sandra

Hi Derek, thanks for the offer of help. Two things I am looking for, the first is the birth/christening for Ellen Gregson around 1782. in all the census she says she's from Longford but her age is never quite so certain. She married John Sherratt 1807 Kirk Langley, Derbyshire.

The next one I'm looking for is Samuel Sherratt who is living with the above Ellen and John in Kirk Langley on the 1841 census aged 6. I've not found a birth for him although all their other children can be found on the IGI. so a birth/christening for him would be great plus a mention of who his parents might be????

Many thanks

Annette

Hi Dewdrop....having some difficulty with Shakespear.for the moment..but have info on Thomas Heap:-

was born 12.05.1786 Swadlincote Derbys
died 26.09.1861 Lichfield Staffs

He was a Lichfield man his father was Thomad Heap of Lichfield 1760-1812 and his mother Jane Sandland 1747-1836....his father married three times and there was bit of naughties going on somwhere because your Thomas was three years old when his father married again....

Grandparents Wiliiam Heap and Elizabeth Farmerly....

Your Thomas heap married RUTH HOUGH b.1785.. from Ashby de-la Zouch Leicestershire on 06.08.1810..in Ashby.
They had FIVE children:-
John 1811-1845
Thomas 1814-1879
Maria 1815 ..

Dewdrop.....have managed to get some info from you..Church Gresley did have several Shakespears....but 1816 is just a touch early for the parish records.........However....I have a marriage for a John Shakespear and Elizabeth in 1840..producing two children Eliza 29.08.1841 and Rutch 06.08.1843.....
If this is your John he would have been 24..which is fine...
Keep in touch
