Hi cjl

Pleasure to help - I like looking! I forgot to add that I looked at the indexes to the Estate mentioned at Alderwasley the Hurt Estate. Unfortunately there were no records for estate workers apparent. It was all to do with inheritance, wills, marriage settlements etc - very interesting but no help to you!

I have just been looking on the curious fox website and someone has mentioned another church (non c of e)  in the area and I am kicking myself for not checking for any non conformist churches in the area! Sorry.

Next time I go I'll check to make sure.

regards nelliedee

ps I got my reward - when looking up the newspaper stuff I found an article about one of 'my' Han(d)burys thsat told me about his death......very sad but very exciting. So thanks to you for your help ;D

Hi Nelliedee,

I am really pleased that you  managed to find something in the newspaper articles which was of some help to you.

I would really appreciate you taking a look at the non-conformist registers if you have the time.  I have taken a look at the non conformist registers which are available on www.bmdregisters.co.uk but didn't have any luck in my search for George's baptism.  Although I do not know how extensively Derbyshire is covered on that website.

Once again thank you for you offer of help, it is very much appreciated.

Best Wishes

Hi Cheecky face (love the name)

A very warm welcome to Rootschat.  I am very excited at finding someone else who is researching the Petts family.

I would be interested in comparing research if you are willing to.  Hopefuly we could then see whether there is a connection between our two families.

Best Wishes

There was an Hilda Wragg who married a man called Petts in Bakewell, Derbyshire. now i know of 4 brothers from that marriage. the parents separated and the mother died young. the sons were adopted by an aunt. i have the info somewhere and  will look it out. all the brothers were given three christian names because their mothers maiden name was incorporated in to that. from what i remember one brother became an electrical contractor, but died in 1998. do you live far away from bakewell?

Hi Cheecky Face,

Thank you for replying to my post.  I do not live in Derbyshire, I live in Yorkshire.  My line of the Petts family left Derbyshire sometime in the 1850's.

Please don't post the names or details of any living or recently deceased person on the forum.  Rootschat's policy is to remove such post in order to protect people.

Hope to hear from you again.

morning cji,

 I am new to rootschat so do not know the rules yet.
If you look on the 1911 census you willl find a
Harry Petts who came from yorkshire and he married hilda ann inkley wragg. he was a stone mason. you will also find a list of their children on the same page. i know that i am related to this family. hope this helps.are you allowed to mention all about past people by name from the 1911 census? Also are you allowed to mention any other anceters who moved abroad, its all very confusing.
