Sir Thomas Wood of Low Hall, North or South Cave
« on: Tuesday 29 November 11 11:40 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
   Does anyone have any knowledge of Sir Thomas & Lady Sarah Wood of Low Hall in about 1807? Their daughter Ann Maria claims to be born South Cave circa 1807. On Genuki it says Low Hall was the seat of Rev. John Petch in 1820, when it appears to be in North Cave. I have from a book that Sarah Wood was the daughter of Captain Matthews of Portsmouth & that she & Sir Thomas married in Portsea.
   In particular would like to know who Sir Thomas was, when born, died etc. Have Sarah's death in Birmingham in 1861.

zDDGD - GRAY, DODSWORTH AND COBB (LATER GRAYS), SOLICITORS, YORK
DDGD/1137   14 Aug 1790   Extract from the will of William Wood of North Cave gentleman
Executor: brother John
Beneficiaries: all real estate to brother John Wood
Witnesses: James Smith, Thomas How, George Gale
Will dated 16 Nov 1784
Probate 14 Aug 1790
With copy codicil to will of John Wood, North Cave, gentleman, 30 Nov 1791:
Property: land at North Cave, Brantingham, South Cave, Saltmarshe and Eastrington
Beneficiaries: devise of cottage at North Cave to wife Ann for life and then to eldest daughter Ann Wood
Witnesses: William Blyth, Matthew Langrick, John Peirson
With copy declaration as to pedigree and marriage and death certificates, 1840



Regarding the titles of Sir & Lady, not found anything relating to him as Sir Thomas Wood. Her title of Lady would have come about from his title if he was granted this first, otherwise he would have had the title or Lord bestowed upon him at marriage as she would have been a Lady by birth etc..  I think looking at the doc's above he was a gentlemen first and foremost and somehow became "Knighted" for some reason and therefore his wife became Lady Wood.
You mention that Sarah Wood was a dau of a Captain, I don't think this would make her automatically a Lady, so I think this title came from Thomas Wood, I wonder if Sarah's father had a hand in him being "knighted" and him becoming a Sir  ???
Maybe there is a register for all those that receive Knighthoods etc.. ???

Now I stand to be corrected upon my understanding of the above as it takes a little sorting out from how one is addressed by these titles depending on how they came about them initially

Regarding the birth of Ann Maria Wood c 1807, she may well have been born South Cave, but her birth would not be registered, reg was from 1837, only a baptism would be registered as such and may contain details of her birth date and place, so maybe you need to be searching afield, she could also have been baptised privately at someone's private chapel etc..

Does Thomas Wood appear on census info for 1841/51/61 and if so where and what was his profession???

I cannot find a date for this edition ??? or what the offences were ???


This is a lovely little book to read of the areas around South Cave

3) John Wood, North Cave, gentleman
I would say the family of WOOD were Methodists, therefore you need to search the methodist circuit records for Newport, which is not far from South Cave. These records are held at Beverley Treasure House under the Goole Methodist Circuit Records.

Again John Wood, Gentlemen, North Cave is party to a dwellinghouse in Newport (Wallingfen) again in the Goole Methodist Circuit Records EMG/344/15.


I wonder if this is a private chapel of the Wood family ???  I think this John Wood, is the son of John Wood, Yeoman/Gentlemen who died 1790, refer back to his Will for names ???  This is most likely the Baptism place for Ann Maria Wood ???

Wow, what a lot of trouble you have gone to - thank you so much. I have not got time to sort  through all your wonderful information at the moment, but will hopefully get to grips with it this evening. The will information is particularly exciting, as previously I could not get any idea of age for Thomas, he having such a common surname. Hopefully now, with names of siblings etc I will be able to find the family on IGI, thank you.

You have gone to so much trouble I feel embarrassed to say I still have not done you justice (unexpected visitors), but having read through it all, I can see you have basically given me a whole family & much to look into. I notice that a Marquis appears to be living at Low Hall in 1807 & I wondered if the zDDBD refence mentioning 'creditors'  meant that the Woods were having financial problems, but maybe I'm wrong - certainly Sir Thomas' wife wasn't calling herself Lady Wood in B'ham. He wasn't with her in the 1841 census & she was a widow in 1851. However, their daughter's husband left her nothing in his will & she had 3 children under 3 to bring up, so he must have thought she was well provided for. I will let you know how I get on.
   I notice too that John Wood was commissioner for the enclosures - that would have made him popular!
   Thank you for going above & beyond, you've knocked a huge hole in that wall for me - you're a star.
