Thanks for looking, sounds like it could have been a one-off accident rather than a more general incident.  Francis was buried backed in Sutton-in-Ashfield.

The Sheffield & Rotherham Independent. Supplement -  Saturday, December 18, 1858

FATAL COLLIERY ACCIDENT - An inquest was held on Monday, before Mr. Busby, coroner, touching the death of FRANCIS POULSON, a collier, aged 35 years, who was killed on Tuesday last, in a coalpit at Pinxton.
The deceased was at his usual work, when a portion of bind fell, and buried him alive. The roof of the pit was timbered, and the accident did not appear to have occurred from want of care on the part of the deceased.
A verdict of accidental death was returned.

Hi

If the offer is still open, I am looking for any info about those with the surname ELLIOTT. My 4 x great grandmother Anne Elliott had three children. 

Elizabeth daughter of Ann Elliott christened  21 April 1794
James daughter of Ann Elliott      christened   5 February 1797
Richard son of Ann Elliott           christened   6 January 1804
       
All three were born out of wedlock and therefore the father, or fathers, name(s) are now lost forever.  Following on from these birth entries came the rather sad news in the burial register
"Ann Elliott buried 29 January 1804, a single woman. Also son Richard  buried 19 January 1804, the spurious son of Ann."
There is an Ann Elliott christened in 1775, father Thomas and mother Ann and a fair sprinkling through the register of Ellicock's and Ellot's also. There is an entry for marriage in South Normanton for Thomas Elliott m Ann PARSONS on 26 Dec 1739 which may be the next level upwards.
What happened to the two children after Anneís death is unknown but I would assume a relative in the area cared them for before being they were sent out to work. Both survived to be present in later census records. Unfortunately, neither was married after civil registration was introduced in the late 1830ís, as it would have been interesting to see if a fatherís name had been entered on the marriage registry.
Any references in your book would be welcome. There are no bastardy orders or removals by the way.

Hi there

I just came across your offer via Google.  If you are still offering, I would very much appreciate some assistance on the following ancestors who were from Pinxton.

My 2xgg, 3xgg, 4xgg and 5xgg were all named George Wild.  2xgg and 3xgg went to Australia during the gold rush in 1860 and didn't return to England.  3xgg was a blacksmith and died in 1867 in Melbourne (my hometown). 

4xgg George Wild was variously a blacksmith and retail beer seller and grocer and probably the publican at the Three Horse Shoes pub in Pinxton in 1857.

5xgg George Wild was born in 1756 and married his second wife 19 yr old Elizabeth Horseley in Selston in 1787. He was living in Pinxton at the time.  His parents were William and Ann Wild.  I would love to know when/where William and Ann Wild married and Ann's maiden name.

Any info on 5xgg George Wild's first wife would also be fabulous as would any information about any of my George Wilds and their wives.  William and Ann are my priority though. 

Many thanks
Therese  :)

Hi Tessacate

Welcome to Rootschat

I know a little about your 3x gg George Wild who married Caroline Walker in 1834.  She is part of my tree, but not on my direct line.  I have a photo of her grave and George is mentioned on it.  I believe George Wild left for Australia in 1851 and died 1867.

Hi Carol

Many thanks for taking the time to reply to my message and welcoming me to the forum.  I'm also delighted to meet someone who has a shared interest in one of my ancestors (ie Caroline Walker).

It was my 4xgg George Wild was married to Caroline Walker (keeping track of 5 generations of father and son called George has done my head in at times trying to keep track of them, hence having to refer to them by generation number to keep them straight in my head :)).  He died in the Melbourne Hospital (now known as the Royal Melbourne Hospital) from Cancer of the Parotid salivary gland on the left side of his neck. So sad he never saw his wife and other children again.   I visited Pinxton last year and took a photo of Caroline's grave.  I have also visited 4xgg's unmarked grave in the old Melbourne Cemetery in Carlton, Victoria.  I was therefore so pleased to see such a substantial headstone on Caroline's grave in Pinxton and to also see 4xgg George mentioned. 

I appreciate she is not on your direct line, but if you are interested in the reasonable amount of info I have collected for Caroline Walker (and her family) don't hesitate to let me know.  I'm very happy to share. 

Thanks again for your message.

Therese

I have posted elsewhere on the site ( have just joined and learning my way around) and wonder if anyone might have any information on Blackwell Miners WW1 casualties - in particular I am searching for a photo album given, I believe ,to relatives of the casualties . In it is a photo of James Wilson ( grandson of James Fryer killed in Blackwell Colliery Explosion 1895 ) and I should so like a copy of the photo as I have no other. ( I owned the album as a child but unfortunately it was lost)
