If you search for the marriage on, using Elizabeth Clarke, 1606 Chelmorton, Derbyshire

You get Elizabeth Clarke = George R,  Feb 1606, there is also a connection to the Chelmorton Parish Registers.  These are in very bad condition and difficult to read.

You have to sign in to familysearch, however it is free

Hi Peter

Originally you posted, the following looking for the History of Your House,  have you now discovered
relatives living previously in the Hammersmith area? If not and still looking for your house on a census
have you investigated any of options suggested

Evening telegraph & Star 23 May 1894


Charles Hughes, Mason, Arundel Street, was sentenced to three months imprisonment for having kept a disorderly house.  Mr. W. E. Clegg prosecuted and the offence was proved by Detectives Drew and Mossindrew, who watched the house for several days.

Ancestry have his Wakefield Prison Record, including brief description of him


Derbyshire / Re: Ann HAWLEY (née GETTLIFFE)

Just to add there is a Male child  birth registered Sept. Q Ashbourne 1850, GRO has the Mothers Name as Gettliffe,  This male child died Sept. Q Ashbourne 1850, again no christian name.

So if John & Ann followed the rules in 1850 and for their other children, why not for John?

Is there a possibility that he was not their child by birth, but bpt., as their child?
Notice that Mary Gettliffe, is 18 in 1851 any chance John could be her child?

Birth for John Hawley now 1854 according to Bpt.,

Sept q 1854 Shardlow registration districts 7b 306 John Hawley, cannot access GRO site at present,
So unable to check mother’s name.

Perhaps some other kind roots chatter would look.

They are on FreReg, but you have to search with the spelling Allison.

You have to create an account on Family search, it is free, then connections I gave will work.

If you have already done this, sorry cannot help.

The images of South Wingfield Parish Registers, which you can view for free on family search, are exactly the same images which can be viewd on Ancestry.

The marriage of Richard Else to An Gibbons on both sites is transcribed as 3rd June , however if you look at the image I think it is 23rd.  Will you take a look and see what you think.

Marriage is right hand page near bottom.

Just a thought but if the English naming system was used by the Else family, you would expect the father of Richard = Mariae to be William, and Ellen to be the name of Mariae’s Mother.
