HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL. HOPE YOU FIND THAT ANCESTOR THAT YOU ARE LOOKING
Could someone look up the 1861 Census for Harworth and surrounding areas for
a possible Joseph WALKER who had a wife Emma and a daughter Elizabeth, Eliza,
or Lizzy. Elizabeth states in the 1900 census in the US that she came to the
US in 1863, and she was born in 1852. So the 1861 census is the only one
that she would be listed on. She was my g-grandmother, but we don't know if
she had any siblings and for sure fathers first name and mothers last name.
We have it listed as HOLLINGSWORDT, which came from her death certificate, in
Have a great New Year.

I have Hannah BRECKNOCK christened Nottingham 25 Feb. 1799 dau of Joseph BRECKNOCK and Mary. The records for this christening do not appear on the IGI and I only found them by trawling through masses of data at Nottingham Archives - then forgot to record which church it was!!! If anyone does have a minute I would appreciate this information. Unless you are looking for the name BRECKNOCK on the certificate you will never read it as it is faint and scrawly.
Does anyone have her in their family, or any other children from this couple?

I'm afraid I can't actually help with your request, but we may have a
connection in that my greatuncle Albert Severn married a Harriet Dutton
daughter of Thomas Dutton (a Twisthand) in 1910. I've been trying to trace
the family afterwards in pursuit of any family photos - Albert was the
eldest son and he may have taken them. I believe they had two children -
Daisy and Lily but that's where my knowledge runs out except that I'm fairly
sure they left Nottingham.
If you have any knowledge of this branch of your family (if it is!) I'd like

Subject: [NTT] Local paper lookup request - Beeston / Chilwell - 1966.
Listed in "Phillimore's Marriages - Nottingham Churches 1562-1812, a CD
from Rod Neep, I found the following possibles:
FROST, William married Joan LUPTON, St. Peter, 23 Dec. 1634.
FROSTE, William marr. Joyes BARKER, St. Mary 20 April 1612
Also, from Family Tree Maker's genealogy library.com:
PURDY, Frances & Mary, Fairfield, 1644, witness to will of William
Frost 6 Jan. 1645 (Ref: Savage's "Dictionary of the First Settlers of
New England, Sec. IV, chp. 4, vol. 3.) Perhaps the Purdys were related
and might have some data on your Wm.
Hope this helps.
I have a John and Elizabeth Bradley with no dates, they were the parents
of Charlotte Bradley born 23.6.1799 in Aldenham, she married William
Spriggs in Aldenham on 13.2.1820, their daughter Harriet married Henry
Crawley in Watford on 12.7.1846, they had a daughter Elizabeth Hannah
Crawley who married Richard Beeston (my Great Grandfather) in Sheffield
The Family then appeared to move to Worksop and Blyth (were there are
still some Beeston's. One of Richard's six children Margaret Ada (my grand-
mothers) married James Kay from Kettering Northants, they moved to
Carlton-in-Lindrick, then Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire, which is were most
of the families of their eleven children still live (including myself).
For Sue who married a Kay Fella, we have as you can see Kay's in Kettering,
Worksop, Woodsetts and Long Eaton. Where is yours from?
Rita I hope the info on the Bradley's above is of some use to you and any
info on the Kay's and Beeston's would be much appreciated.

(Still looking for DUTTON in Mansfield, Late 18th, early 19th Century)
Does anyone have or have access to a trade directory (if such a thing
existed then) for the early 1700s? If so, please could you help me?
I want to find out if a William CLARKE (born around 1670) or his son John
CLARKE born 1694 were Tailors or Drapers. Both of Nottingham. I realise the
name CLARKE is rather common......
I am trying/hoping to find a link between a Robert CLARKE of Wisbech, Cambs.
(born 1795) who was a "Woollen draper and clothier and silk hat
manufacturer" (1851 census), who was married to Elizabeth ASHWELL(b. 1795
daughter of John Ashwell, sometime mayor of Nottingham) Robert and
Elizabeth went back to Nottingham in their dotage and both died there.
I think Robert's grandfather, William, may have been a draper too and I can
find no trace of William's origins in Wisbech so am searching to see if
there was an earlier Nottingham connection before Robert married Elizabeth.
How he met her is a mystery other than the families belonged to the Baptist
church. I am sure people didn't pop back and forth from Wisbech to
Nottingham just for the fun of it!
I hope someone can help.
Thankyou and Happy New Year to all.
More information on the above may be of interest.
Following the 1834 Poor Law Act, the three Nottingham parishes of St Mary,
St Peter and St Nicholas were combined into a single Nottingham Poor Law
Union. The three old workhouses of these parishes were replaced in 1843 with
the opening of the new Nottingham Union Workhouse which fronted onto York
Street and was bounded by Woodborough Road, Clarence Street and Back Common
(now Huntingdon Street)
At the end of the 1880's the workhouse was demolished to be replaced by the
Victoria railway station, which, in it's turn, has been demolished to be
replaced by the Victoria shopping centre and flats.
The new building at Bagthorpe was used for many years as the workhouse. In
the 1950's there were four hospitals on the site now generally known as the
City Hospital - Bagthorpe workhouse whose name was changed to Sherwood
Hospital, City Hospital, Heathfield Hospital, which was the Isolation
Hospital, and St Francis Hospital which was an annexe from Mapperley Mental
Later the first two named were combined and re-named the City and Sherwood
Hospital, and still later all four hospitals were combined into one and
re-named City Hospital. Much of the old workhouse has been demolished and
replaced with new buildings, but some of the original building can still be
The local weekly newspaper for Beeston at that time was the Beeston Gazette
& Echo which closed down at the end of the 1970s or early '80s when the
competition from free newspapers became too much. It had a long life in
various guises during the 20th century and earlier incorporated the Beeston
Observer and Beeston Times.
It is available on microfilm at Beeston library (although it's viewer does
not have a printer). I believe they have a fairly complete run. "Everything"
is reported. If you fell down in the street you would get a mention. If you
were caught riding a bike without a light you got several paragraphs.
This and most local newspapers of the type are particularly strong on WW1
"our boys at the Front" stories which are very useful for family history
purposes as they tended to emphasise the family aspects of this traumatic
time. Did your Granfather live in Beeston at that time ?
For a Golden Anniversary, 90th birthday, etc, expect to find a report and
photo of a visit by the Chairman of the Beeston & Stapleford Urban District
Council and an interview describing their life.
How convient is Beeston Library for you ?
