I have re joined your list to try to sort out some missing links in my family tree.
At present I am searching for Ann Derry CROFTS.
She married a John SCOTT at West Bridgford in December 1864 and had three children. In 1875 she married George HASLAM at St Marks and had three more Children with him.
I am searching for her parents and siblings possibly in the Home Peirepoint/ West Bridgford areas.
Can any one help me please?

Excuse my ignorance, but I have just purchased Nottingham Marriage Licences

'Bondsman'. What is a Bondsman please?

HOUSLEY of Cordy Lane Old Brinsley.If you are researching this family I have a large Works of Shakespear with a list of Housley names ,dates and addresses on the first two pages.Dates from 1866 to 1889.
I tried to reply directly to you, but it wouldn't go through... If you
want to contact me off-list, try my other e-mail, johnpeel(a)pipeline.com
Anyway, I think the problem here is that your family records are a bit
off. They got the right names, but confused father and son. Thomas Sawbridge
married Mary Wilson at St. Mary's Church, Nottingham, on November 27th,
1802. I can't find any record of children for them, but John Sawbridge
married Ann Bunny on April 27th, 1829 in Costock.
Ann was christened in Costock on February 25th, 1810, daughter of John &
Sarah Bunny. That makes her 17 at the time of her marriage. Thomas would be
about 48 that year. It's not impossible that he could have married her, but
it's more likely that a son of his, John, would have been the one.
Meanwhile, Thomas was christened on November 19th, 1781, in West Leake
(just down the road from Costock). His parents were James Sawbridge and
Isabel Whittington, who married in West Leake on September 16th, 1767. He
had plenty of siblings.
If you need more information on any of this, feel free to contact me.
Just for your informastion, as this is an unusual name there is a Leonardi
family at 7 Bankfield Drive, Bramcote Hills, Nottingham NG9 3EH and they MAY
be related. !

Please does anyone have access to apprenticeship records for Notts? I am looking for information on Samuel COWDELL who was born around 1808, married in Radford in 1829 and then lived in Bingham. The 1841 census says he was born "not Notts" and he died before the next census. He appears to have arrived alone, I can find no parents or siblings, so I am looking at the possibility that he came as an apprentice, maybe to a chimney sweep. This might give me a lead as to where he lived before.
If anyone else is researching COWDELL I have quite a lot of info and would be delighted to share it.
Happy New Year everyone.
