Armed Forces / Fred Haslam REME
« on: Sunday 11 November 12 22:38 GMT (UK)  »
Hi to all

I am doing my family tree and im trying to trace Fred Haslam Born 1909 in Codnor. he is know to have joined the army REME. it is thought that he served in Kenya between 1952 - 1960 in the Maumau uprising.

I know alot of my family come from the Codnor area. I have found on this site a reference to Kate Buntin who had a fish and chip shop. In my family I have a Joseph Haslam (born 1887) who married an Elizabeth Mabel Ratcliffe in 1908. Elizabeth Mabel Ratcliffle (born 1891) she had a brother  Ernest William Ratcliffe who was killed at sea on HMS Lovain in 1918. Elizabeth Mabel Ratcliffes mother was Hannah Ratcliffe. Hannah I believe was married to someone called Ratcliffle (I dont know his first name or when they where married). Hannah then married a Thomas Palryeman and lived in Codnor gate in 1901.

I have been talking with my Aunt and she can remember that her Uncle ( Fred Haslam born 1909) use to peel chips and pull a cart with a steel drum full of oil  into the market place every Saturday. She can also remember them helping out the miners during the 1926 strike feeding them in the market. She believes that Elizabeth Mabel Ratcliffe may have lived, worked or was adopted by someone called Buntin who had something to do with chips. I know Elizabeth Mabel Haslam was living in Parkins Yard in 1918. All my family know hers as Mabel and she did not use her first name. Has anyone got any info that may help me fill in any parts.

Many thanks for reading this

Hi Rosie
just recieved a letter with details about Benjamin Haslam and Grace. the date of their marraige is correct. Grace died 10 may 1753 in Alferton. Benjamin was buried 11 April 1756. Benjamin's will is available from Lichfield record office, Lichfield library. Will was made 31 Dec 1753. and proved 28 Oct 1756. Executors of the will were Thomas Haslam and Rodger Walters.Beneficiaries of will Thomas Haslam eldest son. Benjamin Haslam youngest son (he was under 21) means he was born after 1735. Others on the will. MaryHaslam youngest daughter. Grace Haslam (under 21) and Roger Walters of Pentrich (Brother in law). Rodger Walters married Mary Haslone both of Pentrich at Saint Alkmund Derby on 18 Aug 1723. But on the list you see Thomas is described as the eldest son but William was older.

Hi Bill

For some reason this part did not get posted. Ernest Haslam Housley. i have the following on my Grandmothers side. George Haslam Howsley (a little different spelling in the same name). George b. 2 Aug 1845 d. 8 Dec 1919 in Liverpool. His wife was Grace Haslam B.1822 d. 1889. they where married 6 May 1844 in Ashover. i think they are related due to the double barrel surname. if you have any more info i can see if they are related.

hope this is of some use

kind regards
