William Wright of Bamford. 1825-1880.
« on: Wednesday 30 May 18 17:24 BST (UK) »
Iím looking for any family information regarding William Wright born, Bamford,1825, died at Low Bradfield 1880 buried in Bamford Churchyard.  I believe his wife was called Elizabeth. 1827-1890. I would also like to know who his parents were.

I haven't found baptism registers online (on FreeReg or FamilySearch), but I know there was a Chapel as well as St John the Baptist CofE church.

It could be worth contacting http://www.bamfordvillage.co.uk/history-group to see if they have (or could tell you where to find) transcripts.


Did William have children?  If you have their names we could track births on GRO - this would give the mother's maiden name and lead to a marriage (which could give us fathers' names, occupations and so on).  I think proving William's father's name on a marriage would be more accurate than starting by looking for a baptism.

Nice!  Hathersage is only a couple of miles from Bamford.

Derbyshire baptisms for children of Samuel WRIGHT and Nancy found on FamilySearch are (all in Hathersage):
Joseph 20 Mar 1814
Robert 10 Dec 1815
Sarah 28 Jun 1818
George 1 Oct 1820
Thomas 19 May 1822
William 18 Jun 1824
John 31 May 1829

This would suggest that Samuel and Nancy either moved into the area with a young fanily or married c1810-1813

ADDED: There is a WRIGHT gravestone in Hathersage churchyard that may relaste to this family
