Its good to know that there are others researching Cooper surname in the same
area, I find it frustrating though that none of my distant cousins, etc. of
which there must be many, are not online and doing family history research, or
maybe I just have not found them yet, thanks for the e-mail and good luck with
your own research.

I have a tree for the descendants of Johannes SAwell, married to Maria
Bodgard in 1660. Their descendants involve the families of Ingoldsby,
Evans, Unford, Taylor, Burleigh(Burley), Needham, Kidman, Bentley,
This is a searchable list of many of the convicts who arrived WA 1850 -
1868. They are listed by ship, so the search might take a while!
My g g grandfather JOHN WRIGHT was baptised in Basford on 30th Nov
1834. His father was a framework knitter,also called John Wright, and
his mother was called Sarah. and the baptism cerificate gives the place
of abode as Basford as well. I know for certain that this is the
correct John Wright because it was in some old family papers. In 1866
he started a veneer making business in London, and three years later he
came back to Nottingham to marry a local girl called Eliza DUROSE. By
this time his father, also John Wright, had died. John and Eliza
settled in london, but presumaby kept close contact with Nottingham -
John's name appears on the death certificate of Eliza's parents for
example. He also laid the foundation of a church in Nottingham. The
business was very successful, and John Wright designed a veneer peeling
machine which is sufficiently innovative to be mentioned in books about
thehistory of veneer production.
Somehow, he must have got an education, and some money to start the
business. When I was looking up Durose in the census for 1851, I came
across a family of Wrights - mother Sarah, a laundry worker, sister
Hannah, also a laundry worker, and son John, a glover. The ages are
right for it to be him, and his marraige was wintessed by a Hannhah
(sic) Wright. I doesn't prove it is him but there is some
circumstantial evidence - they lived in the next road to Eliza for
Anyway, I digress. How can I find out more about his education, where
he went to school etc, are there any records of this typoe of thing in
Nottingham, and if so, where are they to be found. The guy is really
interesting, and I have loads of information about his later life,
especially after his retirement, but I want to know how he got where he
did. He is unlikley to related to the banking family descended fronm
Ichabod Wright because I have looked at their family tree in the local
studies library in Notts. Also if he was his father is unlikley to have
been a framework knitter.
Any info or suggestions gratefully recieved,
Hello John and others,
I would like to learn if this resource is still available.
Two of my CARGILL relatives were Schoolmasters in Notts.
James CARGILL is shown as a Schoolnaster in 1841/1851 at Southwell.
(The LDS Library Cataloque shows they have a book on Southwell, Schools.)
Another James GARGILL was Schoolmaster at New Basford in 1851.
If you know of other resiurces please say.

Thanks for any further information on this line,
Your posting to the NOTTSGEN list states that you are researching the
surnames SEWELL and MARLOW. Our counties don't match but I have an Ann
SEYWELL who married Richard BALDOCK in 1611 at Plumtree, Notts., and
Elizabeth MARLOW who married George URTON at Norton Cuckney, Notts. in
1723. If you come across either of these individuals in your research,
please keep me in mind.

Diana overcame so much trauma in her personal life to become a loving

of honesty. I would love to have a sister, daughter, mother or friend
like Diana. May God keep her soul at peace.

I asked Paul Nix for the origin and meaning of the place named Kirkby in
Ashfield. This is what he said.
Original spelling was Chirchebi in 1086
Kirchebi in 1166
Kerkebi in 1169
Kierkebi in 1202
Meaning "Church Village" or "Church by the village"
The Ashfield is the same as for Sutton in Ashfield
Kirke or Chirche = church
bi or by = by or near (bi or near a village if their is nothing after
An example of the other use of bi or by would be "bycarrs Dike (lincs)
which means Dike by the Rocks.
I would be interested to see what Kirkby librarys says
Thanks Paul. Another one solved

We found the information of considerable interest. Angel Row struck a note
with our "Martin" family, residence at Meredith Yard and being in the
Brewing/Publican business. Also interested in the mentioning of
Sneinton,which we assume is Snenton Village, Snenton with our connection to
the Fowlkes family. Any further information on the foregoing areas and
families would be appreciated.
