Derbyshire / Re: Thomas Tighe died 1911
« on: Monday 11 February 19 17:05 GMT (UK)  »

Just checking the year and place of death, as unable to find in newspapers also on Free bmd there is no death recorded in Chesterfield for anyone by name of  Tighe in 1911.

Where did you obtain info that Thomas Tighe was killed 1911 near Chesterfield
Slight correction there is a Laurance Tighe aged 15  recorded December q 1911, is this your man?


Derbyshire / Re: Edwin Bradbury and The Goat's Head - - a minor running a pub?
« on: Monday 11 February 19 16:38 GMT (UK)  »

Holding a beer licence was not the same as being a licensed vitular i.e. having a pub licence.
The beer house obtained their licence from Customs  & Excise, however the pub licence had to be renewed every year from the annual licensing session.

The beer house act of 1830 allowed any one who paid local poor rates to obtain a beer licence, they could sell beer or cider but not wine or spirits.  There was not the samecontrol over beer houses as there was for a public house licence which had to be renewed every year and if their conduct had not been satisfactory the licence could be refused.

So the Goats Head was not a pub, it was a beer house.

Hope this helps

Family History Beginners Board / Re: Would a man be buried under the name 'widow'?

Agree with Arthurk, there are 2 widows named Swettman this is the burial of the senior lady.

Just to add the National Burial Register has same transcribed entry but not Senr., Knighton appears to be looking for the burial of a male Swettman about this time perhaps he could give more details?

John Fitzgibbon  the will titled  The Right Hon. John Earl of Clare, of Ireland and the Right Hon. John
 Baron Fitzgibbon of the Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

The second Earl of Clare died August 1851 this will probated September 1851, so yes this is the will of the 2nd Earl. 

Knowing that servants were often left bequests in Wills, I looked for the date of death of the Earl, and with that info looked for the probated will.  It is on Ancestry, if you do not have access you may get access via your local library.

Because of the many previous posts, if you require assistance it would be best if you post what you know and can prove I.e. Working backwards from say your Grandfather, give census, marriage and birth info.

A little more information for you, the will of. John Fitzgibbon Earl of Clare was probated 26 September in Prerogative Court of Canterbury. 
In this will he leaves on pg 6  "and that my Butler and Valet James Jefferies if also living with me may have receive and take during his natural life one annuity or yearly rent
Of £25 of lawful money"   He was to receive this in 2 half yearly payments without any deduction.

THis is a different Christian name I.e. James and in 1851 census John I Jefferies.
Perhaps the Earl only knew him as Jefferies!



Re the Bpt of Ann Pym 1803 Belper.  This did not take place at St. Peter's Church, Belper this
Church was not built until 1825.  Can only assume that Ancestry have this listed as St. Peters Belper because this is the modern name for this parish.

The Bpt took place at St. Johns Belper, which was a Chaplry to Duffield.  There were only Bpt and burials at St. Johns marriages were in Duffield.  St. Johns was built C1250  google search will find images.

If you find the image of the Bpt on Ancestry, you will see at the bottom of your screen it is
image 73, however if you go to image 2 you will see that it states "Baptisms within the Chapelry of Belper".

Joseph Pym was born in 1782 died 1853 was Clerk to Belper poor law union, his son George and ancestors eventually became solicitors with an office at The Triangle Belper.

Hope this helps.


Derbyshire Lookup Requests / Re: Fenny Bentley Burials

Hi Alan

According to the Heading   History - Church Registers, compiled by Mr. B R.

I take this to mean transcribed by, in which case he has transcribed what it states in the register including headings.

You will not find actual address of the person in Parish Registers, for this  you need to purchase a death certificate this will give abode, Name, date and place of death, age, occupation, cause of death and who registered the death.

Hi Alan

I gave you the connection direct to the Registers, however if you enter the site via

You will see on the right hand side “Church Registers” click on this and you will get various Registers
Bpt., marriages and burials.

When you select burials, Then click burials 1813 to 1991.  Page 1 of this set of records clearly states

When finding things via google it is always best to check the source, in this case the village has gone to the trouble to transcribe the church Registers, this said you should also check the actual register yourself.

Hope this helps
