I am seeking information on the family of James HAYES (born ABT 1845-6 in
Greasley), and his wife Sarah (born ABT 1841-2 in Selston, and probably a
WILSON). They are recorded in Underwood in the 1871, 1881, and 1891
Censuses, and in the latter census have with them Sarah A CHAPMAN who is
enumerated as their adopted daughter.
Sarah (Ann) was born in East Bridgford on 15 February 1880, the illegitimate
daughter of Annie Elizabeth CHAPMAN, and was my grandmother.
I am trying to find if there is any link between the HAYES and CHAPMAN
families and, particularly, how Sarah Ann CHAPMAN came to be moved from East
Bridgford to Underwood.
