Done quite a bit of research recently, and worked out many of the descendants of Daniel Henshaw and Elizabeth Millington, plus more about my own ancestors in the Stockport Area. I am curious to find out more about Daniel Henshaw, Blacksmith, of Didsbury, son of my ggg Grandfather Henry Henshaw and Hannah Woodall, of Cheadle Hulme. Daniel lived from 1802 to 1876 and married Ann Brown. He had two sons, William, and Henry (1833 - 1894) William had three children, Daniel (1884 - 1912), George (1886 - 1966) and Herbert (1888 - 1976). I am wondering if there are any living descendants.

Greetings once again!

The exclamation mark was mine. As you say, no Chester in Yorkshire. I wonder about the research that some people have done.

However, I did find these, but I think they are a non-starter.

These do not make sense to me.

Greetings from Bowdon.

Found this source relating to Thomas Henshaw and Joan Garlick:

Thomas Henshaw was born in 1563, at birth place, to William Henshall and Margerie Henshaw (born Gyll).
William was born in 1540, in Chester, York (!), England.
Margerie was born in 1540, in Cheshire, England.
Thomas had 5 siblings.
Thomas married Joan Henshaw (born Garlick) on month day 1581, at age 18 at marriage place.
Joan was born in 1565, in Staffordshire, England.
They had 12 children: Thomas Henshaw, Ellen Henshaw and 10 other children.
Thomas passed away on month day 1632, at age 69 at death place.

Would be interested to see if this could be traced back further.

Greetings from the U.K. Very interested to learn that my ancestor Daniel Henshaw's father, Henry Henshaw was married to Mary Sutton. I did not have her family name.

Henry's father John Henshaw, born c1670 married twice. His second wife was Mary Heald and my ancestor, in 1708, so the two marriages could have caused some confusion.

John's father was also called Henry, and married Margaret. His father, William was born around 1605, and married Ann Wilson. He may be descended from a Henshaw family living at Tydnock Farm outside Marton, north of Congleton, Cheshire

Greetings Birtle from Mauritius.

It seems likely that William Henshaw born 1605 is related to the Henshaws of Tydnock Farm.

There is a full pedigree of the Henshaws of Henshaw Hall in Earwacker's "History of East Cheshire." I am told it is not 100% accurate, but it does mention the Roger Henshaw of Tydnock Farm who was raising support for Charles I during, or just before the Civil War. He had his property sequestered by Parliament, but got it back after the restoration.

Yes, I confirm from Wikipedia that Dunham Hall belonged to the Booth family at that time. It was constructed in 1616 by Sir George Booth. William probably started work there early in his career.

Yes, the children of the Tydnock family would be from around the 1590s, while William was born around 1605. Interesting that you mention Gawsworth. The Lea Henshaw you mention is almost certainly the Lea Henshaw of Henshaw Hall, at Henshaw in Siddington. He was the son of Thomas Henshaw and Eleanor Browne, of Henshaw Hall, and was born in 1593 and died in 1631. He had a sister called Ursula. His father, Thomas, was described as "A Captaine in Ireland, slaine at Blackwater, 1598." This battle is also known as the Battle of Yellow Ford, during the O'Neill rebellion, occurring on the same date as Thomas's death, August 14th., 1598. I would very much like to tie up my lineage with those of Henshaw Hall as the lineage would then go back to about 1365. That would be something!

The Debretts report did mention something about the Tydnock Farm family have a connection with Newbold Astbury, located near Congleton.

That's wonderful. Debretts were suggestive of this family being the ancestor of William. The children amazingly all seemed to survive childhood, which is remarkable for that time. William, I seem to recall, spent some time on the estate at Dunham Massey, outside Altrincham.

Best wishes,

Greetings once again. That's brilliant. Is the Thomas Henshaw of Tydnock confirmed to be William's father?

One of Thomas's children was Roger Henshaw, and according to Earwacker, he went gallivanting around the Cheshire countryside trying to raise support for Charles I in the Civil War. His property (presumably that at Tydnock was sequestered by Parliament, but he probably got it back after the Restoration.

Can you confirm this?

Best wishes,
