Cheshire / Re: The Bayley family of Willaston Hall

Hello Roger
I think the Brassey Hall documents would be of interest to you. I gave these to the RO in Chester several years as I had no need of them.  The said deeds are really rather interesting as at least several have maps annexed showing the extent of the Brassey Hall estate.  This farm was sold in 1863 by Sneyd.  I have the auction catalogue and would be more than happy to send you images if you are interested.  Do please feel free to contact me for any more help I can give.
Kind regards

Hi Roger

Thank you for your reply.

How interesting! I wasn't aware that Maria Bayley had sold off land to the Birchall family. I'm guessing this was the same family of Birchall that lived on a farm on Colley's Lane, Willaston? A Sarah Birchall lived at Brassey Hall I seem to remember in the mid 19th century. The title deeds to this last property I found on ebay. These deeds I deposited at the county archive in Chester. I made a copy of the 1863 auction catalogue and I have the map too. Maria Bayley acquired about 100 acres from Ralph Sneyd. I don't know of any link between the Bayleys and Sneyds other than business.

I am making a detailed search of the Crewe Chronicle and have found many references re the Birchall family especially in relation to land owned by Birchall which the council wanted to acquire so they could put down sewers.

King regards

Cheers emeltom, I really appreciate your help with this. No matter what I tried I just couldn’t find her after 1851😏


Cheshire Lookup Requests / Census Lookup: Ann Mills
« on: Tuesday 30 October 18 14:54 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone find Ann Mills on any census after 1851?

1841 and 1851 she was in Nantwich with her husband, William Mills. He was born in Chelsea, Middlesex, while Ann was born in Nantwich in 1819ish. She was formerly Ann Cooper and married at Nantwich in 1838. I'm sure I found her living in the south of England years ago but can't find her now.

Many thanks, Jay ;)

Thanks Emeltom

I've often wondered whether William and Frances Cooper were the parents but I cannot prove it so there is still a question mark regarding the parents of Thomas, William, Elizabeth, Edward, Isaac and Ann.

Thank for your reply.

What I'm really trying to do is establish the identity of Thomas Cooper's parents. He died (committed suicide in Nantwich in 1847). His known siblings (confirmed by his brother's will) were William, Edward, Isaac, Elizabeth and Ann. However, I can't find baptisms for any of these children in Nantwich.

Elizabeth Cooper married Thomas Avern Adams at Nantwich in 1830; Ann Cooper married William Mills also at Nantwich in 1838; and William Cooper married twice, first to Mary Edmonds; secondly to Ann Edmonds. On Ann Cooper's marriage certificate she has William Cooper as her father as does William on both of his marriage certificates.

In the Crewe Chronicle I found an interesting article (date 1929) which records the death of Martha Adams (daughter of Elizabeth Cooper and Thomas Avern Adams) who was aged 91. The article said that Martha was the granddaughter of Rev William Cooper who was minister at the baptist chapel in Barker Street, Nantwich along with his brother Rev John Cooper so it appears that the father is William Cooper who was a shoemaker as well as a preacher.

Cheshire Lookup Requests / Marriage Lookup: Isaac Cooper 1850

I wonder if anyone could find the marriage entry of Isaac Cooper to Fanny Williamson? The marriage was in the Nantwich district in the Dec qtr of 1850. I need to establish the identity of Isaac's father if possible.

Many thanks, Jayson

A stone I saw in a churchyard had an inscription which read something like ‘My debt is paid my grave you see be prepared to follow me’ which I really liked😂😂😂


Shropshire / Re: Tunstall Hall

Thank you to everyone for contributing to this thread and many thanks for the various links.

I was trying to recollect where I had actually seen Weston Bayley mentioned as having lived at Tunstall Hall, and I remembered I had seen it in an old edition (about 1937ish) of Burke’s Gentry. In this he was described as being of Madeley, and of The Grove and Tunstall Hall, Salop. His wife Esther was the daughter of William Church, and he was described as being of Tunstall Hall too, and also Betton Hall (which is near to Tunstall Hall) so I’m even more confused. Perhaps Weston was there because of his wife’s interest in property as she was co-heir.

Peter and Eleanor Broughton trying to obtain custody of a lunatic sounds really interesting. I wonder what was going on there?
