Hello Jane.
Do you have any idea what Harriet's maiden name might have been?

Hi

It may or may not be:

Marriage WRE (West Retford) William Shaw & Harriet Golland 11 8 1823

Baptism WRE Harriet to Edward & Elizabeth Golland 28 12 1803 (If this turns out to be correct there are loads more children listed for this couple)

Many thanks, Jane. I was hoping she was a Conworth, but no, sadly.
Ah well, on with the search.
Cheers,
Alwynne

Hi Alwynne

The only Conworth on the whole of the NFHS CDs (BMDs) is

Baptism   BLY 19 8 1827  Job to Job & Catherine Conworth Abode Hodsock Occ Farmer

Not all parishes are transcribed but I have never seen so few entries for a name on all 3 CDs.

Thank you very much, Jane. I am interested to see that Job gave his occupation as farmer at that point.
Conworth is one of the rarest names you can find, and yet to look at it, it seems so ordinary. So far, every single case of the name I have come across, whether in the UK or elsewhere, has turned out to be part of the same family. I do believe there were once Conworths in Ireland, but I can't find any there. It's certainly a bit different from tracing Smiths!
Cheers,
Alwynne

Hi Jane
The Harriett you have listed with her kids is one of mine.  Thanks heaps for the info I have some of her children but not many.

Alwynne - sorry but I haven't come across any other Conworth but that's not to say maybe an aunt or sister married one from the Shaw side or Golland side somewhere.  Good luck.......Thanks for all your help - I've had a break from family history as my head was swimming with families from here there and everywhere......

I am interested in the Holleworth and Singlehurst names.  I have William Turner (b abt 1790) and his twin sister Elizabeth (parents Joseph Turner and Hannah Lambert).  William married 25 Oct 1819 Anne Singlehurst of Firbeck and Elizabeth married 1st Feb 1816 Samuel Hollworth of Firbeck.

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).
