Gervas Shaw - Redford
« on: Wednesday 19 January 05 21:35 GMT (UK) »
Gervas married Ann Singlehurst - looking for Anne's relatives on the Holleworth side.  Her mother was Caroline Holleworth and her father was Charles Singlehurst.  Any help with the Holleworth side would be greatful.
Sorry if doing this wrong first time on the site.  Thanks.

Gervas Shaw b 1841 East Retford
Ann Singlehurst b 1843 Workshop
Married 12 February 1866 East Retford

Their son Job Conworth Shaw b 1881 is my great grandfather. 

Caroline Holleworth (Ann's mother) born abt 1820 Yorkshire married Charles Singlehurst 1842 Sheffield.  Caroline's father may be Samuel Holleworth married Elizabeth Turner Yorkshire 1816.  No other info available so am trying to figure out if the Holleworth's are english or american.  My great aunt who is still alive (93years) has always said we have american indian in us.  Thanks for help new at this (have done 8 families but 2 seem to not want to be found).

Hello, abcdef!
I read your message about Job Conworth Shaw with interest, as I have been trying to contact anyone connected with him for some time.
I am a Conworth descendent, and Job Conworth was one of my family. There were several Job Conworths, all from the same family, but one of them and his son - also called Job - lived in East Retford, Notts, and Ulley, Yorks.
My question is do you know if the Shaw family were connected to the Conworths, or was it a case of Job Conworth Shaw possibly being named after his godfather, or a friend?
I know that Job Conworth Shaw came to Australia, which is also where I am.
Cheers,
Alwynne

Sorry I haven't come across any Conworth in the Shaw side but that's not to say there wasn't a marriage somewhere or a cousin.  It is funny that your side are from the same area so maybe there is a marriage somewhere.  Good luck hope you find something.

My thanks for that.
I do know that both Job Sr and Jr were godfathers to the sons of people in the district. One, for example, was the family Chambers, a family of architects. It may be that Job Conworth had some connection with the Shaw family in East Retford, and was asked to be a godfather. There were certainly Shaws in Ulley, Yorks, where the Conworths had a country property.
That being said, god children don't usually take the whole name of a god parent. In the Chambers case, Job was just included as a second christian name. To take the whole name suggests a pretty close connection.
As far as I can tell, there were no other conworths in Notts., the rest of the family being mainly in Northants and adjacent counties. All the conworths I have found (it's a surprisingly rare name) have been part of the same family. You can see my Conworth website at

www.tribalpages.com/tribes/conworth

Does the name Conworth appear in any other later relatives?
Cheers,
Alwynne
