Re: the OKELL Family I am researching. Ann Okell married Joseph Berrisford
16.12.1833 in Tarporley.
Re: the JACKSON Family. Esther Jackson married Richard Mulliner at Wybunbury
Parish Church 24.12.1861. She was living at Doddington at the time of her
marriage. Her Father was Daniel Jackson a Shoemaker.
I am seeking information on the above named clergyman.
In 1912 he married Mary Orr Wylie Brownlie in Flint Parish Church. He had
recently become Rector of Sale parish Church. For three years before that he was
Rector of Dukenfield Parish Church.
In January of 1914 Mary gave birth to a daughter and three months later she
committed suicide. The inquest, as reported in the County Herald, revealed "she
had been showing signs of despondency since the birth of her child".
Mary was buried in the Northop Road Cemetery, Flint.
I would like to know what became of the Rev Hurst after that time and of
course his daughter whose name was not given. I presume she would have been
baptised in Sale.
Any help would be gratefully received.
Thanks Paul and Marjorie
My Pownalls are from West Kirby, though of course they could have come from
anywhere. Their connection is to the Edge's who came from Malpas but were
also in West Kirby early 1800s onwards. Oh if only I could ask them why!!

There are probably 150+ entries in the Wilmslow Parish Register, 1558-1652,
for people named POWNALL. I suppose that is to be expected, as Pownall Fee
is one of the four townships comprising Wilmslow Parish in that period.

Hi Barbara and Cathy,
I have been trying to research the POWNALLS for quite some time, but have not been getting too far.
My wife Denise had the maiden name of POWNALL.
I have got back to James POWNALL, born abt 1796, and died abt 1869 in Stockport. He was married to a Harriet OLDHAM on 6 May 1816, also at Stockport. Children as follows:
Elizabeth born abt 1821, Romiley,
James " 1826 "
Mary " 1826 "
William " 1831 "
Samuel " 1834 "
George " 1838 "
Samuel came to Australia abt 1858 and married a Margaret ROBERTS in 1859.
I do have the Census readings for the family for 1841 - 51 - 61.
I hope that someone can connect with this lot.
Warmest Regards, Ian CAMPBELL in cold and wet Melbourne.
Found this entry while trawling through the records of St John the Baptist, Chester
..... Unfortunately this couple are not my ancestors, would be nice to inherit these genes !!!
George HARDING and Jane DARLINGTON married 09 May 1776.
NB George Harding is in the 105th year of his age and Jane Darlington in her 75th year !!
The exclamation marks are in the record !!!!!

Yesterdays is a collection of some of the stories appearing in the
Ashton-under-Lyne Reporter 100 years ago. Apologies first for a shorter
than usual offering - put it down to a slow news week (in family history
terms) and hard to read copies. This week there is a dispute over at Hurst
Band Club; a local divorce case; a labourer's fatal fall; and a letter of
complaint that a decorating contract for the Ashton Parish Church should
have been given outside the district.
Find it at http://www.rhodesfamily.org.uk/yesterdays/1904/30apr04.htm

In a recent posting someone gave the URL for the Cheshire Parishes as www.cheshireparish.man.ac.uk .
When I go to the site there are a numbe of abbreviations to choose from which presumably refer to the particular parishes. Can someone enlighten me how to decode the letters so I can choose the parish in which is located the village of Elworth?
Many thanks for your help

I need some help with my Hibbert ancestors. Thomas HIBBERT died on
19th November 1867 at Hillingdon, Middlesex. His death Certificate
stated that he was 83 years old and his occupation given as Horse
Dealer. Apart from his children that is all the information I have
According to his will he had 6 children most of whom were Christened
at Dronfield, Derby.
The children were:
William, Elizabeth, Mary, Thomas, Ann, Sarah.
His son William HIBBERT married Ann GRIFFITS, daughter of John
GRIFFITS and Nancy WAY of High Wycombe, on 8th March 1838 at Hanover
One of their children was called William Nembhard HIBBERT.
The name NEMBHARD is connected to the HIBBERT family of Birtles Hall
near Macclesfield Cheshire and Chalfont Lodge in Buckinghamshire. I
have been unable to find a connection between these two HIBBERT
families and indeed there may not be any connection.
If anyone is researching this family I would very much like to hear
Jan from Sydney
Hi All, Please could some one help me. Is there any one on the list that
lives near Sheffield. I need a look up. I found my GGGf James HIBBERT living
Hetton Le Hole in 1891 and his birth place said Derbyshire so I went looking
for a Samuel Hibbert born in Derbyshire and I came up with one. Samuel
HIBBERT born mar Qur 1850 ECCLESALL BIERLOW DERBYSHIRE Vol 22 Page 140.
I need to confirm that his father is James HIBBERT born Bagworth Hall
Derbyshire. Or could you tell me where the records are kept. I know I keep
asking for help over this one but it is a real brick wall.
Anne in New Zealand
I have an ancestor, Elizabeth Boardman, who was convicted of theft in
Macclesfield in 1797 and sentenced to death, later commuted to
transportation to NSW. She would have been born about 1773.
Granted I don't know that she was BORN in Macclesfield, but since that
is the only town I have to go on, I have searched to Macclesfield
registers covering the 1700s and not only didn't find Elizabeth, I
didn't find ANY Boardmans.
However, since I strongly suspect she was Catholic this is not
necessarily a problem.
But, my problem is this.... where (in what parish) would a catholic
person living in Macclesfield in 1773 have been baptised?
Does anyone have access to St. Peter's, Stalybridge buriels.
The person I am looking for is Peter JACKSON,supposedly buried there in
1868,his wife Ann might be there also.
Thanks in advance for a look-up.
Other than Cathy Edge and myself, is there anyone else out there looking at
the Pownall family? At the moment we are talking about the Wirral Pownalls
as I can see there were a lot in Macclesfield and around Prestbury.
If you follow the link below you will see that Ecclesall Bierlow was
part of Yorkshire and that in fact the records are kept in Sheffield.
I hope this helps,
Thanks very much to all that voiced their preference recently when I sought advice including Rodney, Neil, Joyce, Richard, John, Edward, June, Phil, Joe, Charlie, Leslie, and all of you who I thanked off line. By the way, Legacy was the narrow choice by respondents--I'll be giving it a go. Thanks, again.
What about Hank and Mexican Pete, also The Appleyards and The Grove Family and of course Dixon of Dock Green!
