Hi Corinne
Thought you might like to know I found the connection between John Finney, who was at Flagg Hall in 1871, and William, who was there in 1861.
John was the son of his (william's) grandfather's brother. John was the son of another William, whose brother was George, and HE was the grandfather of William at the hall. They both shared a common ancestor of the next generation of a Thomas Finney born about 1750.
Keeping it in the family.

Thanks Ermy and Alexander
As far as I can tell, he was probably a farmer.
There is no will to go with this (surviving, if there ever was one) - just this inventory.
Looks abit like 'acorns' to me - which seems just as unlikely! :)

Thanks for the others Alexander - nearly got them all now! Brilliant!

Many thanks all. All very interesting!

Anybody make out the first two items at all? - Whatever the first thing is (starts with an 'a') is worth 4 Marks - so quite a lot compared to the odd pennies for things.

Thanks again.

Derbyshire / Finney Births - FOUND

I'm trying to find the birth of John Finney around 1818 (consistent age in 1851, 61 and 71 Census) around Haddon - from 1841 looks like his father was William and his mother Mary. (my computer on such a go-slow I can't even get the IGI to load! :-\)
Also looking for the birth of his father William Finney around 1786 (55 on 1841 Census) - born 'Derbys'.

Many thanks in advance

Hi corrine
Many thanks for all this.
Some I already had - like you I decided John Finney's age in 1851 had been mistranscribed as 53, and was in fact 33; but also lots of snippets I didn't have which all help to fill in the jigsaw.
Like you, I haven't been able to find the relationship between William and John - I had not seen John's parents before - and at present I can't tie them in to any Finney's I know. I think there must be a relationship though.
William Finney did leave a will, and as he doesn't seem to have had any male children surviving, perhaps the will will shed some light. I await it with anticipation!

Many thanks again for your time and efforts

WOw! thanks very much corinne.
Now I'm even more confused!
I don't have a John Finney in all my families of that age - probably some cousin or other yet to find. Can you see his place of birth? And I'm guessing he was the farmer there?
It would also be very helpful to see the places of birth of Rogers family members at Underhill Hartington. If this is 'my' Elizabeth, she would be born at Alstonfield Staffs (I think she's shaved a few years off her age!).

Could I possibly prevail upon you and see if you can find John Thomas Rogers (born1839) and Sarah(born 1853) - in 1881 at Fernydale.
Many thanks again.

Added: Sorry! Can't get the file to attach! Will keep trying!
Added 2: Hooray! Finally got a file to attach! Sorry it's not the lightened, slightly larger version I had intended to attach and wouldn't!

I'm hoping some  of the clever rootschatters with keen eyes can help me decipher this will!
It starts:

The inventory of the goods of Richard Lane
which died upon Saint James day last and the
praysers of the said goods are these
Thomas Brecke (?) Richard ? John Parker (?)
John ?hall
Item for ?                                foure mark
Item for ?
Item for beddruye (?)
  "      "  Raiment

I know there are some experts out there with the money bits! 

Many thanks

Is there anybody who can view the 1871 Census for Flagg near Buxton please? (FreeCen not transcribed Derbyshire yet).
I'm trying to find out who was living at The Hall (sometimes called 'The House')
In 1861 it's a William Finney with his wife Elizabeth and 4 children. He is the farmer there with 280 acres.
William dies 1868 aged 41, and his only son George had died 1866 aged 8.
I'm trying to discover if the Finney's were still there - maybe his wife was running it, or if it had passed on to someone else - maybe one of his 6 daughters and husbands. Possibly a John Thomas Rogers and Sarah (daughter to Wi
lliam) married 1869.
In 1881, John Thomas and Sarah are at 'Ferneydale' nearby (another farm?).
Many thanks in advance

Midlothian / Marriage John Suttie and Ann
« on: Friday 11 February 11 20:29 GMT (UK)  »
Is there any kind person who can view the OPR of St Cuthbert's Edinburgh?
I'm after the marriage of John Suttie and Ann Baird on 7th July 1781 in the vain hope there may be there may be anything else written there.
Many thanks
