Derbyshire Lookup Requests / Haywoods of Alfreton / South Normanton
« on: Wednesday 30 April 08 19:41 BST (UK)  »
I have some loose ends with the Haywood family in the Derbyshire coal fields at the beginning of the nineteenth century and would appreciate some help tying them together.
Ann Haywood was born in Riddings (abt 1811) and married John Naylor (b 1808 from Golden Valley) in May 1830.
The 1841 census has a John Haywood (? Ann's brother) living with them.
We also have a Lydia Haywood (b South Normanton abt 1810) who married and moved to Bulwell Nottingham whilst we also have a George Haywood who was born in Bulwell in 1805 but who spawned a huge family in South Normanton. Were George and Lydia related?
Is it possible to find their parents?
Many thanks Alan

Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / George Haywood (b abt 1805) Bulwell
« on: Wednesday 30 April 08 19:34 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to trace the parents of George Haywood who appears to have been born in the Bulwell district of Nottingham in 1805. This could be complicated by his family living mainly in South Normanton, Derbyshire but there is evidence of other members of his family (from South Normanton) going back to Nottingham to go into domestic service. Also we have a Lydia Haywood (b abt 1811 - South Normanton) who married a Robert Hill and moved to Bulwell. Were Lydia and George related?
Many thanks - Alan

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) Lookup Requests / Nessworthy in Hull
« on: Wednesday 07 February 07 14:15 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to trace a branch of the Nessworthy family (based on Tyneside). Four members are known to have lived in the Sculcoates area in 1901 - 57 Pulman Street) and deaths of three are registered either in Sculcoates or Beverley. Is there an easy way of determining where they might have been buried? Susannah Shields (1899), Robert Nessworthy (1910), Ambrose Nessworthy (1915)
Many thanks Alan

Buckinghamshire / Nicholas CRAXFORD - The Thornton Parish Register
« on: Saturday 23 December 06 16:54 GMT (UK)  »
I have found a reference to The Register OF THE PARISH OF Thornton IN THE COUNTY OF BUCKINGHAMSHIRE 1562 - 1812 which mentions Nich Craxford (page 15) Does anyone know how we can get further information about this, it is likely this would be the one of the earliest mentions of our surname (1620 - 30)

Huntingdonshire / CRAXFORD family in Huntingdon
« on: Saturday 23 December 06 09:36 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to place a family named Craxford with connections to Huntingdon. Robert first appears about 1760 and married Mary Cockerill at All Saints & St John in 1785 and had six daughters. Robert appears to have been a collector for the Assembly in Huntingdon (new release from records office) - last reference 1810. One daughter, Charlotte, has a son David Robert Stapleton Craxford in 1817 - and another son, Francis Cockerill Craxford (1814), who sentenced to be transported to Tasmania for seven years in 1834.
The Craxford family can be traced back to Gretton, Northamptonshire to 1619 but I have not been able to find references to Huntingdon before about 1760 or after about 1830. Any thoughts, suggestions or other ideas would be gratefully received.

Kent Completed Lookup Requests / 1841/51 Census look up Kent Elham Craxford
« on: Saturday 16 April 05 15:16 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for details of John Craxford "Gentleman of Folkestone" death registered in Elham 1857 and his wife (?Harriott) and children (Edwin Frederick, Emma Ann, Harriett Ann, Jane and John). I think he was a sawmill owner and sometime resident at Belle Vue Cottage, Folkestone. The family tree traces back to Northamptonshire in the early 1600s but I have been until to place John on it. I can find no trace of his offspring after his death.

Many thanks
