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'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

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

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

Irene, did you ever find anything? I've got Midworths in my tree, and they were very big cheeses indeed, who had a fair bit of clout, Mary's brother had an illegitimate daughter before he married Sophia and the child was baptised with both parents present and no bastardy bond issued, Ann, another sister appears to have committed suicide at Cromwell lock, but it didn't leak out into any papers. also be aware that the family seems to have originated in Eckington , then to Mansfield, Belper and Newark, and there are a lot of Marys

I've had a fun time trying to disentangle what's true and what's embroidered from the Cutt side, interesting family, but not always in a good way. my worst hairpuller is my 3x great grandad who is incredibly elusive and had a job that took him and the family all over the country, I've resorted to starting with early wills and working forward, because going backwards isn't working

I don't need many marriages yet, but having a look at the registers will be useful I think, once I've got a list of targets sorted out
I think William's first wife was Fanny Dobb (Q3 1850 -Q1 1876)
