Fynney family Leek
« on: Thursday 14 October 10 08:35 BST (UK) »
My wife and I are currently researching the Fynney family of Leek and thereabouts. I am in contact with a man in Canada who is a Finney and says that there is a disk in existence on the Subject of the Fynneys of Staffordshire.

Has anyone any knowledge of this please.

Thanks to all.

Hello Wendy,
I do not think that your Fynney's are in the lines we have been researching. It is possible that the are connected further back as it is fairly well established that the ancestors of the Leek Fynneys spelt with a Y and not i go back a long way in Staffordshire.
I may have a clue for you in that I see that on another Post you started reference is made to a Priscilla MOUNTFOTD Fynney.
We are aware that on 25th July 1846 a Mountford Fynney a silk manufacturer of Leek married a Ann Clee also of Leek his father John Fynney was a Butcher and her father William Clee was a Painter and Plumber. This took place at Leek Parish Church, the witnesses were Joseph and Jane Finn. I believe that they had a son Edmond born 1846 and a daughter Elizabeth born 1851 all can be seen on family search.
I'm not sure if this is relevant but may help. If you can trace your Fynneys back to a Samuel Fynney b 1693 then there is a connection.

Good Luck

Hi - I am a descendent of the "Fynney JOHNSON" family - the name appearing to become interlinked in the late 1700s.

Would be interested in sharing research, if any one else is interested.
Callear/Gallear and a growing list of (mis)spellings

One day my family history will become Callear!!

Boy Scout:

Have you tried the Leek & District Historical Society for information on the disc

http://www.bednallarchive.info/misc/l&mhistsoc/leek_hist_soc.htm

I'm going to Lichfield Archives on Monday, I'll ask them if they have any knowledge, or can point me in the right direction.
