Hi Jamila169, thanks for your post! I've not got any further with documentation so I'm trying DNA now, and I've had some interesting matches that I'm trying to confirm.
It's brilliant to find someone else researching the Midworths! The Mary Midworth I'm looking at was b 1853, the daughter of William and Sophia, i think you're probably talking about the previous generation? I didn't know that William had an illegitimate daughter before he married Sophia. I'd love to compare notes, especially about their big cheesiness, that sounds interesting. Is there any way we can do that?

if You're on ancestry i can invite you, my interest in them is my GGgrandmother's brother married 2 Midworth women, one from the Mansfield line, and another from the Newark line,  the Newark ones interest me because of knowing William Midworth's work , and the Mansfield ones because they have a street named after them

here's some links about the family in general:

http://ourmansfieldandarea.org.uk/page_id__575_path__0p2p32p21p22p19p.aspx - there's inaccuracies in the family details, in this, there was more than one child who married

Thank you! I've not seen all those links before.
I've set up a public tree on Ancestry to help with potential DNA matches - it's called PMF FOR DNA. Most of the info I've gathered on the Midworths is on there. I'd love to see what you've found.
Have you done a DNA test by any chance?

I've seen your tree and it's helped me a bit, but I think I've expanded on it especially the Mansfield and Eckington side. I have to keep my wits about me and I'm about to draw out a reminder tree to make sure I keep the right Sam, Joe or Bill attached to the right Liz, Ann or Mary because I'm at the point where it looks like a logic problem, i'll send you a link when I'm sure that everyones  straight

PS, not done DNA yet, I probably will because a good number of direct ancestors have travelled to the east midlands, and another chunk have been washing around the dukeries for centuries so will have links with all sorts of people, especially the yeoman/gentleman farmer types

I'm glad my tree has given you some help, I'd like to see what you have on the Mansfield and Eckington side. Having extra generations is a big benefit when looking for DNA matches.
