Thomas Stevenson Bakewell? Nottingham? 1600s
« on: Tuesday 14 November 17 14:08 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for any records for this man.
Here is what I know
His father was Francis Stevenson of Rowley (worked for the Manners family Haddon Hall) who was born abt 1542, died 1634 (buried at Bakewell) Thomas was left land and property in Nottingham in his fathers will, no mention of a wife in 1634. He had an older brother John, who wrote his will in 1650 and left money to Thomas' two daughters, his sister Stevenson of Nottingham and his main legacy to Thomas's son John. I can find a possible marriage for Thomas but no baptisms for any children.
Any input gratefully received :)

left money to Thomas' two daughters )
Their names would help with any search.

Was the property left 'in Nottingham' in the town? or is there some some smaller place mentioned?

Unfortunately no names are mentioned in the will!

The will states housing and land in the town and county of Nottingham
I know there's very little to go on here but thought it worth a shot. I have searched FS, FindMyPast, & Anc with no results that seem possibles. I may have reached the stage with this family where I'm 'not seeing the wood for the trees' :)

Hi Sunflower, thanks for your interest
I found Thomas Stevenson marrying Elizabetha Buxton 2 Apr 1632 Bakewell (Family Search) but no clear evidence this is the correct Thomas, just the right area and timeframe :( Very little to go on I'm afraid. The most important link for me is a baptism for Thomas' son John, who was probably born between 1634 (not mentioned in his grandfathers will though another grandchild is mentioned) and 1650 (mentioned in his uncle's will) John is my link in terms of the land & property this family owned.
