Title: Pegg Family, Notts and Derby
Post by: Brian Wainwright on Sunday 23 April 06 17:19 BST (UK)
I have put together quite a reasonable family tree of my PEGG side ancestry, going back to William PEGG born 1803. The family seem to have been located in the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire area, although they quite often intermarried with Irish families. The dominant family occupation seems to have been lace industry. Would be glad to share with anyone who thinks they may link into this. I suspect I have several cousins I do not know.  ;)

Hi Brian

Welcome to Rootschat. I hope you find some connections. Have you found the surname interest table? Is there any more Nottingham/Pegg information you need?

Hi Brian, my grandmother's best friend was a Pegg and they were in the Long Eaton area.

Hi Andrew

My grandfather George Pegg was born (and his mother consequently died) in Sandiacre which is not a million miles from Long Eaton. All I know about the (recent) family is what my mother has told me, there was some kind of row circa 1946 between grandfather and his bros, and touch was lost. I believe one brother (or half brother) played for Nottingham Forest, and another was an NCO in the Guards. Great, great grandfather William Abbott Pegg (b 1860) is, according to family legend, the man who took the first lace machine to the USA. Whether this is literally true, I know not.

Regards

Hi Jane

Again, according to family legend, great-grandfather did collect rather a lot of the folding stuff, but, and it is a big but  ;), he put most of it down his neck in the form of whisky.

The first Pegg I have traced was a soldier, and some of his children were born in places like Bermuda. From the census info I have looked at, most of the family seem to have got themselves involved in lace working. I would guess that was fairly common in the Nottingham area at the time. It's very interesting, also I was surprised to find just how much Irish blood I had in me. I am quite new to this game, but I can see how people become absorbed as it is so fascinating, and there are so many different hares to be chased.

Hi Brian,
                Do you have any Pegg From  Salford?
My Grandfather was  Victor Pegg but he was illigitimate and Pegg was his mothers name, he was born about 1896,I dont know his mothers first name only that she worked at the Black boy Hotel in Leicester at the time she became pregnant( im assuming she was sent away to Salford for the birth) The only other info I have is about his adopted family.

Sorry, can't help on that one.
The Pegg that came to Manchester was my grandfather and his descents are accounted for. The other Peggs (from my lot!) apparently remained in the Nottingham area.

Of course, there could be an earlier link...

Hi all,

I've got Pegg/Pegge records going back to 1327, mostly around Loughboruogh up to 1508 then most clear records come from the branch at Shirley near Ashbourne. The family crypt is there. That family is the root of the Pegges of Beauchief Abbey and the Catherine Pegge who had two children by Charles II.

There are other lines which stayed in the Leicester/Nottingham/Derby area, and one group in North Norfolk back to the 1500's. I recently found one solitary John Pegg in Burgh, Cumberland in 1336. I have the hearth tax and muster roll records of the Pegges in Derbyshire in the 1600's.

I have also located 2 Pegges in Lincolnshire which is assumed to be the origin of Daniel Pegge the Quaker who established the principal US branch in Philadelphia 1680-ish.

Most active notice board is the genforum board feel free to contact me via this board,

Hi I am new to this website and want to reply to Peggasus - but note that his message was put on the forum in 2006.

My maiden name was Pegge my grandfather and great grandfather lived in Ashbourne, Derbyshire. They owned Hollies Farm. My father has a coat of arms with the Pegge emblem on it and my uncle has a copy of our family tree going back to Catherine Pegge, who was a mistress of Charles II and had 2 children by him and also 2 by her subsequent husband. Catherine lived at Yeldersley hall which is now a hotel and both my parents and uncle and aunt have been there and introduced themselves to the owners.  I have an aunt who lives in Clifton in Derbyshire and there are Almshouses there with the Pegge coat of arms on!. My grandfather's name was George and he had a brother called Arthur. My great-grandfather's name was Arthur and their parents were Joseph Pegge and Sarah Woodroffe. Would like to hear from anyone who may be a relation.

Hi Yeldesley,

If any other Pegg's or Pegg researchers pick this up at anytime, place a note here and I will attempt to contact you. I have several trees and some good info to pass around

My stepfather's (William Geoffrey HAMILTON FARNSWORTH - known as Geoffrey) first wife was Daisy Irene (nee WINN), the widow of Horace Richard PEGG (b Shardlow 7b 521 Mar 1901).  They had a daughter Barbara PEGG.  Horace was part of the Long Eaton lace manufacturering family.

My own family are the WALLISes, who manufactured lace and lace machines.

One of my genealogy projects is to see how many of the Long Eaton lace manufacturing families link with the WALLISes - probably most of them, if not all, since social circles were so tight!  ;D

I would welcome any further information on the PEGGS.

I have a Mary Pegg (abt 1798 - 1870) who married Thomas Langham in Loughborough in 1815.  They were very involved in the Nottingham lace industry, some of the Langhams lived in Calais and must have been part of the lace trade between the two cities, but I don't have any details of the business (but have some census and BMD dates there).  The Langhams were also part of the lace industry in USA and link with my family line of Westons.  One Weston emigrated to Scranton USA and was an engineer to the lace curtain factory there.

I have a photo of the family grave at Holy Trinity, Lenton.  She is buried with her husband, also her son Samuel and grandaughter Mary Jane.

If anyone has any details of Mary Pegg's family, I'd love to hear and swap the info I have.

Hi
Peggasus and Yeldersley. I have traced my family to  a Thomas Pegg who lived at Fieldhouse Farm in  Waterfall, Staffordshire in 1792, if you have any info re connections or families who resided in the same area I would be very grateful. Thomas Pegg married Sarah Milward at Tissington in 1778,

Hi Yeldersley,
I have seen the message about your Pegge line going back to Catherine and her connection to Charles II, and also the mention of your auntie at Clifton.
If you've proved your line back as far as Catherine then you go back to 1508 via the official Pegge pedigree.  It would be good to have a chat with you but I'm not sure how this can be arranged - I've only just joined.
Regards,

I realise this is an old thread but wonder if anyone has information on Judith Pegg born about 1783 who married  Joshuah Smith in 1805?
I have them on the 1841 census and believe she died in 1844. I can find two baptisms one 1785 St Werburgh Derby daughter of Francis and  Milicent the other baptised 1783 daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth in Ashbourne.
Joshuah and Judith married in St Peter's Derby so at first glance the 1785 Judith fits BUT her death suggests the birth in 1783 is nearer and she had an Elizabeth and Samuel but no Francis or Milicent.
Several trees on An..ry have Francis/Milicent's daughter dying well before 1844.

Hi Yeldersley--I've just joined the rootschat site and found your message re your Grandfather Arthur James Pegge--he is my 3rd cousin, and I am also part of a small group of Derbyshire Pegges who have dna taking us back to 220BC, a fairly large (!!) gap and then 'our ' John Pegge, born about 1480 , but listed as 1508 ( when he was a witness to a deed, so had to be over 21) jOHN is my 12th great Grandfather.
I'd love to share my comprehensive Pegge/Cooper tree with you, but don't know how via Rootsweb ? regards, Mags Smith

Google has just brought me to this post whilst I was researching my family tree. Mine is still in its infancy however my great grandad's sister Frances Eleanor Parrott, a teacher from Liverpool married John Pegge when he was 26 and she was 29 (quite late for a woman of those times). John's address was showing as Hollies Farm, Clifton, Ashborne, Derbyshire in the 1911 census and I thought google would show me this property which appears to have now been converted into a garden centre. I still have a lot of research to do so any assistance by relatives of John Pegge who could give me a steer would be greatly apricated. :)

Hi Cheryl--good to hear from you. I see from you your Ancestry uk Parrott tree that you have John Pegge's mother as Elizabeth Pegge b 1854. She is actually Elizabeth Cooper 1853-1942, married to John's father Arthur James Pegge 1857-1910 who is my 1st cousin 3 x removed. I have an extensive Pegge tree back to my 12th Gt Grandfather John Pegge born 1480 approx--all in Derbyshire.

I would be happy to invite you to share my Pegge/Cooper tree via Ancestry, if you would provide me with either your email address or your Ancestry uk username ?

regards, Mags Smith, nee Cooper.

Hello all Pegg researchers,
I have recently traced my father's line to a matrilineal branch of Peggs in Colton, Staffordshire, possessed of a property in Colwich called Newlands in the 1700s. The wills of the male heirs of this family all identify themselves as "Gent" rather than "Yeoman". The earliest representative of this line is Thomas Pegg, born approx 1650. We have a release of Newlands by Elizabeth Pegg to her son Thomas on 1 January 1684. How this Pegg family ties into other branches is unclear to me. Does anyone have information on this branch?

Thanks so much.

Coming back after a very long time. Ancestry UK has been a massive help and I have discovered that I actually have two Pegg lines!

One goes back to Samuel Pegge (1637-1716) who married Sarah Fletcher. He was born and died in Sutton-on-the-Hill, which I believe is quite close to Pegg Central - the Ashbourne Area.

The other goes back to Thomas Pegg who was born in 1610 in Leicestershire and died at Stoke Golding in that county. He married Margaret Wheeler. (I gather his father was another Thomas but I have no details beyond that.) This is actually my male line down to my maternal grandfather.

If anyone has either of these two in their trees and can add anything I should be very grateful.

I was astonished to find I had two Pegg lines and at first thought I might have a marriage of cousins, as there are links in both lines to Willington, Derbyshire. But in fact the two lines seem quite separate.

 Hello Brian--I have both your ancestors in 2 of my Pegge trees ; Pegge/Cooper for Derbyshire, and my Leicestershire Pegg tree. Your Derbyshire Samuel Pegge 1637-1716, was married to Sarah Fletcher 1640-1718, and his father was Humphrey Pegge 1607-1689 , from Osmaston Derbyshire, and his mother was Katherine Riddiard. Samuel was my 3rd cousin 9x removed.
Thomas Pegg born 1610 in Stoke Golding, Leicestershire, and died there. one of his descendants, William Pegg, 1802-1844 in Willington, Derbyshire was my 7th cousin 5 x removed.

I would be happy to send you invitations to my two Ancestry trees if you would like ? I would need either your email address or Ancestry username. My email address is; [email protected]

Hi again--Ancestry invites sent to your email address for both my Pegge/Cooper tree and my Leicestershire Pegg tree--hope you enjoy looking for connections--we must be very distantly related.
Do contact me via email if you have any questions or comments--I'll give you 'contributor' access so that you can interact with the trees--if you look at the individual profiles you'll see my relationship to the individuals.
