.sorry..I have searcged evrywhere I can for Colledge...but it really is too vague.and anyway most parish records stop soon after 1840.

Hi Derek

I think I may have asked you this before but can you have a look for the death of George Tattersall, I think he died sometime between 1829 and 1844, he was born abt. 1793 in Chesterfield.
Also his widow Mary who married Abel Holmes in 1846 in Ashover, she was born abt.1800.

Thank you

No problem Derek, thanks very much for taking the time to look. Perhaps one day I'll find them!.



Jubal Report 10 Oct 2008 17:09

Hi Meercat,

Just checked, I already have that birth certificate, it's not her, the parents are different. :-(

I have bought several birth certificates over the years, allowing quite a big +/- from 1862, and also with spelling variations of Colledge, but nothing. I do have Emma's marriage certificate which gave me her fathers name but have never been able to find this blooming family! I do appreciate you taking the time to look for me.

Best Wishes,


I'll PM this to you too.


Derek Report 10 Oct 2008 18:52

Hi Kathleen..have not found George's death yet..But the Asover parish records do not show Mary's marriage to Abel Holmes........I` wonder if they were non-conformists..i'll keep looking


Derek Report 10 Oct 2008 18:54

Hi you by any chance have his parents??? Looks like he was born just after the 1901 census was taken..which makes it difficult!!



Derek Report 10 Oct 2008 19:05

Jayne...His birth is confirmed 12.10.1901..parents William Boot and spouse unknown...Charles Henry Boot married Gladys Hunt 04.09.1937..with apparently 8 living children.....(married derby)


Nickydownsouth Report 11 Oct 2008 00:05

Hi Derek...... thanks for your kind offer. I wonder if you would be able to look up a baptism record for

Frederick Thomas Strong Furniss..... born 1818 Derby Derbyshire, .

If I have the correct person ,he should be the eldest child of John and Elizabeth { nee Strong} Furniss who married in Duffield in 1817 {IGI info} baptism may be in Duffield, though I have found other possible siblings baptised at St Werburghs and St Alkmund Derby between 1821 and 1832..... {IGI again}, these latter ones are definetly my relations and am trying to see if Frederick T S is also from the same family.

Thanks in advance for anything you may be able to find.



Derek Report 11 Oct 2008 09:39

Hi nicky, all I can do at the moment is confirm that FTS Furniss was born 1818 Derby..I don'tr have the Derby City parish records, but I can go hunting.
I can tell you that by 1861 through to 1881 he was living in Tranmere lancashire with his wife mary and children.
I'll keep looking



Nickydownsouth Report 11 Oct 2008 17:24

Hi Derek..... Thanks for your help, Yes I already have the census info for him and wife and family, am really just trying to see if he fits in with my family and is one of my Furniss clan or not, his baptism records seems to me the only way to be sure of his parentage. I am also having difficulty finding his marriage record...... there is a marriage for a Frederick Furniss to Mary Barnes in 1840 in Prestwich Lancs., {Lancs BMD}, though feel that with all those middle names they would probably have been used, and he wouldn`t have called himself just plain old Frederick, so not sure its him..... also according to the census 1st child seems to be Jane born c1844........quite a long time after the marriage is this were to be him. Have found his death registry in 1899 Birkenhead and he is registered as Frederick Thomas S Furniss, so am keeping an open mind on it all.... I may order the 1840 marriage cert.with a ref. check of John as father and see if they send it or not.

Thanks for your help


Derek Report 11 Oct 2008 22:59

Nicky.its a bit tricky!! but sending for the marriage cert may be the only way........Lancs BMD allow you to download an appication from by clicking on the reg.number on the right of the entry...and that form includes the place to send it and your £7.00 fee... Unfortunately i only have marriage records in Duffield and derby till 1812
Lety me know how you get on



Karen Report 12 Oct 2008 09:21

Hi Derek,

Karen of Brisbane here...

I see that you have been kept very busy helping everyone, but..

Just wondering how you are going finding any info on my Winchesters of Chesterfield Derbyshire...

I posted a message last week.

Waiting in hope...



Nickydownsouth Report 12 Oct 2008 13:29

Derek..... Thanks for your input.....will order from the GRO online, so as I can do ref. check for father.......I have ordered from the Lancs BMD before and am pretty sure the ref. check facility isn`t available with them, do not want a cert. for the wrong Fred Furniss so will do it that way..... will let you know how i get on.



Derek Report 12 Oct 2008 18:17

Hi Karen..I hadn't forgotten you, its just a massive job finding any Winchesters..i only have a couiple of Chesterfield Registers and believe me there are any number of Parishes..I don't suppose you cam narrow it down to part of Chesterfield??

In passing..I have unearthed a very sad story..maybe related. maybe not,

I'll just give you facts and the dates and let you see how tragic it was::

Bakewell Parish Register

Humphrey Winchester married Elizabeth Moor 06.07.1766........
James b 08.08.1767
Thomas b 16.07.1769......died 21.07.1769
Elizabeth b 15.05.1770
Thomas b 11.03.1771......died 14.05.1771
William b 07.07.1773... died 09.07.1773
Mary b 03.07.1774... died 27.03.1775
Lydia b 07.08.1776 .... died 26.08.1779
Francis b.01.09.1779 ... died 13.09.1779
Mary Ann b 16.09.1784

Poor woman!! what on earth was he thinking of subjecting her to such pain and turmoil??
One last thread........
Both Humphrey and Elizabeth died on the same day..10.02.1814....howv and why together??? we'll never know!

All the best



Karen Report 12 Oct 2008 21:56

Hi Derek,

Sorry for being so pushy..

I thank you for all your help...

Karen of Brisbane

Ps..regarding the family you mentioned.. a sad story, and as you say strange they both died on the same day ?? a fire maybe...
