Hello Derek
Do you have access to records for Glossop, Hayfield and surrounds...I would like to trace any Margerisons if possible...John Married a Catherine Lister in 1883 and had children....then she did a runner and became Catherine ******* Gt Grandmother!!! So I would like to trace these descendants as they would be interested to know what became of their Gt Grandmother I am Sure!! Many thanks rach


Derek 18th February 2010 23:36 Request review
Hello Rachel..sorry for the delay.....I have been unable to find any Margerisons in the records i have....largely becasue they don't go up to 1883..but I have you on my list for my nest trip to Matlock records office. please bear with me.

Rachel 25th February 2010 04:45 Request review
thats great thanks. The children were Joseph b1887, John William b 1889..Agnes c1887 Grace 1891, Elizabeth 1893 and Eva 1898. I think the younger girls may have been put in a workhouse? By the 1901 census Catherine was with her new family! Margerison is sometimes misspelt Margison on the records I gather? I would really like to trace these relatives and know what became of them after their mother left. :( Also if you come accross any Lister or Longleys they may well be Catherine Lister's relatives as seamingly Beard and Bridge and Bancroft names are linked through marriage, wich is how i guess they came to be in Glossop from Sheffield?

thanks for that

Madmeg Report 22 Apr 2010 01:39

Thanks Derek. Yes the first was Hannah, followed by Joseph, John, Amy and William. Oh, I said that already.

Well, when it comes to brief parish records, don't we have to take a chance? I mean, we ain't going to go back to aristocracy, so I am fairly happy to say William's parents were "likely" to be William Frith and Martha Chapman. If somebody care's to take me to court over them, I'll be prepared to stand trial (citing you as evidence of course!).

You say:

"I have fairly strong evidence that his parents were William Frith and Martha Chapman.....and whilst one hint is that William junior was born Eyam..which he clearly wasn't..another suggests Great Hucklow."

Which William are you referring to as William Jnr? The one born 1810, or his father b 1780? Oh, you mean his father (whose birthdate I have guessed). So he was born Gt Hucklow, shall we say "likely"?

And his parents were William and Martha Chapman? And my Willie is their second Willie b 1780?

Did they marry at the parish church in the middle of Hope? I'd like to think so.

But I still can't find any marriage. *** Of whom?

I was really looking to know who William Frith b 1780 married, Martha, parents of the five children born Eyam. Is that the marriage you can't find?

We can't usually get much further back unless names are unique or there is something noteworthy about the person. A load of Ag Labs or even Stone Masons aren't going to reach the National News. My next ports of call are the cemeteries of Derbyshire - when the weather warms up a bit.

I did go back to BEFORE 1066 on one branch, cos a Vicar joined the clan, records were there, historical books etc. I also went back to time immemorial on the family of Charles Darwen, until I noticed a "slight" flaw in my logic around 1780 that failed to prove I was at all connected! Hey ho. So 1771 in Hope it is.




Derek Report 21 Apr 2010 19:49

Hi Sally..sorry not to have answered you before..yes i broke a bone in my ankle..but compoletley fit again now...thanks for bohering



Derek Report 15 Apr 2010 13:56

Hi Margaret..I do't mind trawling..I enjoy it........but this one is a bit of a nightmare. Certainly the five children of William and martha were born at Eyam..the first being Hannah 1801.

I have fairly strong evidence that his parents were William Frith and Martha Chapman.....and whilst one hint is that William junior was born Eyam..which he clearly wasn't..another suggests Great Hucklow.

You may or not know that that particular area encompasses places lke the Parish of Hope..and Tideswell two miles i went "trawling"......
William Frith married martha Chapman at Hope further i went to Tideswell..and found William Frith son of Willam and martha 30.08.1779..but he died nov 1779..But also another William son of Willam and martha (!!!!) baptised 30.03.1780.

But I still can't find any marriage.

Incidentally the parents of William Frith senior..also appear to be Willaim and martha!!.

I think I have to give up on this one!!



Madmeg Report 10 Apr 2010 17:48

Derek, my initial interest was in John Frith b 1805 Eyam who married in Prestbury, Cheshire 1829 and was in Macclesfield till his death there in 1868. The only reasonable baptism at Eyam on IGI is 10 Mar 1805 (Extracted version) giving parents William and Martha and 4 siblings.

Being slapdash at recording my sources (on a pile of paper somewhere!), I don't know how I came to the conclusion that William and Martha were born or married in Eyam. Their first child is born 1801.

So if it wasn't Eyam, I suppose it could be anywhere. And I'd have no way of knowing would I? So don't do any more trawling, he clearly didn't have a brother Thomas anyway.




Derek Report 10 Apr 2010 16:45 trolling through Wirksworth records..will keep you informed..



Derek Report 5 Apr 2010 11:32

Goodmorning Madness.....we have an odd one here!
First..according to the Eyam Parish records neither Thomas nor William were baptised there.
Second THOMAS did indeed marry AMY BRITTLEBANK 16.02.1801..and had a veritable horde of brats.........

I have also found in the Eyam Records the children of WILLIAM and MARTHA to which you refer............but there is no marriage, in fact there are three marriages for a William...all far too how do we know these two are the parents you are looking for?

There is no evidence to show a Thomas brother of a fact your informant must have relied on IGI (a submitted entry.not to be trusted) for a birth of Thomas Frith c.1776 Eyam.........he appears nowhere else......though, as I say he DID marry at Eyam

There are loads of FRITHS at of whom is a WILLIAM FRITH born 25.02.1780 son of William and Hannah.and another at great Hucklow b 1779 son of William and martha..there are others at Chapel-en-le Frith

I'll keep looking.....



Madmeg Report 4 Apr 2010 23:51

Derek, my injured friend.

I have William Frith born Eyam 1780, married Martha Unknown, had children Hannah, Joseph, John, Amy, William. I have no parents for William Snr. Any chance you can find any?

A GR member has contacted me who has a possible brother for William, a Thomas b 1776 who he says married Ann Brittlebank 16/2/1801.

My question is, can you find parents for my William, and is he related to Thomas who married Miss Brittlebank?

They're mostly stonemasons if that helps, but I think Eyam was over-run with stonemasons called Frith.
