Derbyshire / Are there two Robert Goodalls?
« on: Saturday 18 September 21 00:15 BST (UK)  »
I have Robert Goodall baptised In Shirley Derbyshire in1731 seems a likely candidate for a marriage at Shirley in 1754 or 1755 to Mary Pountin.(this from Derbyshire records,  I think this particular record is a transcript since there are anomalies)
Robert and Mary Goodall have three children baptised in Longford Derbyshire but from Hollington. Derbyshire Esther 1768, Hannah 1772, Robert 1774.
Robert and Mary Goodall were buried in Shirley 1817, but both were from Longford,
The problem I am having is the gap from the marriage to the birth of Esther is rather large.
There are  baptisms for John 1755,Shirley and Alice Mickleover The place Mary was from at her marriage,
Are these the same Robert and Mary and there is an unknown reason for the gap did Mary Pointin die and Robert married another Mary?

Scotland / Margaret & William Dunn Are they related?
« on: Friday 21 May 21 21:58 BST (UK)  »
Margaret Dunn born c1781 in Scotland married James Oldknow in 1800 in Barony,Lanarkshire James was in the Nottingham militia.
They spent the next few years in Scotland but by 1809 they were in Derbyshire which was James's place of birth.
William Dunn was born in Scotland c 1790 but by 1818 he was in Derbyshire where he married, Margaret Oldknow was one of the witnesses.
Both James Oldknow & William Dunn were framesmiths and this may be the connection, but I find it hard to believe that two people from Scotland with the same surname should end up in the same small Derbyshire village without there being some sort of familial connection.
I have done a lot of searching but cannot come up with anything definite.
Any suggestions would be welcome,

Derbyshire / Edward Green Fletcher
« on: Monday 25 January 21 22:49 GMT (UK)  »
 Edward Green Fletcher died in Heanor 1790 and was buried in Horsley 5 Feb 1790.
Edward Green Fletcher married Elizabeth Fletcher in Heanor 8 Aug 1775 his occupation may have been sojourner.
Mary Fletcher baptized 5th Feb 1778, Shirland parents Edward Green Fletcher & Elizabeth Fletcher
Mary Fletcher baptized 5th Mar 1778, Shirland parents Edward Green Fletcher & Elizabeth his wife
Edward Green Fletcher baptized 10 Aug 1779, Heanor parents Edward Fletcher and his wife Elisabeth
Edward Green Fletcher Buried Heanor 22 Mar 1805
I think the first death is of Edward senior and the second of Edward junior
Are the two Marys the same person or are there more than one Edward Green Fletcher.
Any thoughts or advice on this would be welcome.

Nottinghamshire / William Slater's grandchildren
« on: Friday 11 September 20 22:34 BST (UK)  »
William Slater of East Retford left a will proved July 1810. The will is fairly straightforward, his wife Elizabeth is the beneficiary, there is mention of his daughters Elizabeth Slater and Sarah Slater (both unmarried at this time). These people I know about. There is also a mention of his grandchildren Anne Slater and Henry Slater it is these two people I am trying to find out about, I can't find a son born to William and Elizabeth and baptisms are not helpful since I have no idea of the ages (although I think they may be underage in 1810)  or who their parents may be. Suggestions as to how I might proceed would be most helpful.

The Common Room / Peachy family mystery
« on: Wednesday 01 April 20 20:54 BST (UK)  »
Favell Crafts married Henry Peachy in 1819 in London, they had three children, Henry (1820), Alfred(1824) and Favell (1826). By !840 Favell is in the United States , and by 1850 her children Henry & Favell are on the census.
I was trying to find when the family came to USA and in 1828 there was a family with a remarkable similarity to the Peacheys.
Henry 33, Favell 35,Henry 8, Alfred 4, Favell 2, surname Howard, Ok for some reason they were travelling with an alias, but I also have a death in 1830 at Everton, Lancashire of Alfred Peachy aged 5 son of Henry & Favell, did Alfred and his father return to England or is there some other explanation.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Hoyle probate
« on: Sunday 02 February 20 19:20 GMT (UK)  »
Isaac Hoyle of Bunny 1741 and his children. Most of this is easy to read but the right hand column has me guessing, what does it say and what does it mean.

Shropshire / Thomas Minton marriage
« on: Thursday 10 October 19 00:25 BST (UK)  »
I have found a marriage license on Ancestry for Thomas Minton 1 Dec 1762,Shropshire, spouse given as Free Chapelry,I feel this is not the name of the spouse, but the place of the marriage. I have found several licenses with Chapelry either added to someones name or used as surname and they all appear to be mistakes in transcription.
Can anyone help me solve this puzzle.
