Hello Ken,

As you were not aware when Richard and Anna SULLEY died or where they were buried, then I am assuming you didn't know Richard Sulley had left a Will ?

It just may prove useful.....  :)

A copy of the Will is held at Nottingham Archives and they could send you a copy (fees apply).... but, there are some very generous folk on here and if one of them is going to the archives anytime soon they might offer to get a copy on your behalf  :-\

Please Please I am unable to say how much I would enjoy having a copy of Richard Sulleys Will. If someone would be so kind to get a copy for me there would be a cost. How could I help?  Please let me know what I can do as it is very important to me.
Ken

Hi Ken,

Dizzifish has sent me a message asking me to look at this thread to see if I can help.  I go to Nottingham archives most weeks (not been this week due to illness) and can have a look for the Will off Richard Sulley for you.  I think it will be on micro fiche so should be able to copy it to my usb stick and send you a copy by email, should be going on Wedsneday or Friday next week if all's well if not will be the week after if you don't mind waiting. Also can get the burial records too if you would like those too.

Hi NG,
I would be so pleased if you would collect both the will and burial records if possible.
I am just amazed that you would do this for me. I will be anxiously waiting to hear from you. Please let me know how I might reciprocate for your kindness.
Ken

Hi Ken,

I now have the Will of Richard Sulley for you, it does not say very much just that he left everything to his wife Anna no mention of children. If you want a copy please pm me your email address and I'll send it to you, it is a bit faded and the writing  is small so a bit hard to read.

Haven't located the burial records yet but if they were first buired in Board Street burial ground and then moved to the cemetery it may be there is no record but will keep looking for you.

All the best

Hello Ken,

I am pleased that NG managed to get you a copy of Richard Sulley's Will, it was a shame that it didn't tell you very much.

I don't know how much you already have on the other children of Richard and Anna and if there is any other information to help fill in the gaps?

On the 1841 census, Anna Sulley is in the parish of St Nicholas and there is a Rebecca Sulley with her, aged 40 yrs. I think she was also a daughter of Richard & Anna.... although I didn't find a baptism/registration to confirm this.
(The first two children of Richard & Anna Sulley were christened as Presbyterians and the other five Baptist)

I am no expert on Baptist records and I haven't  been able to find some of my ancestors, mainly due to the records being kept at their chapel and the records did not survive.

Gives a small insight into the dates, finances,changes, schisms, numbers of members etc. =

Below is a little bit of extra information relating to Richard & Anna Sulley and family that helps add some more colour to the picture.

Best wishes
