ATTEWELL
« on: Tuesday 17 March 09 10:36 GMT (UK) »
A fellow researcher has sent me fairly conclusive proof that one of my Manleys moved to the USA c 1875.

Amelia (Maily) Manley was the daugher of Henry MANLEY and Matilda WELLS and was born about 1849 in Bridport, Dorset.

In 1871 she was on the census as Amelia Atwell along with John Atwell and 2 children Drusilla and Richard.

She married John ATTEWELL in Sebastian, Arkansas, USA in May 1874, had at least one more child Hester who died aged 2 months in Ridgely, Illinois in 1887 and died herself in 1887 in Ridgely. Newspaper reports of their marriage describe them as Gypsies

John ATTEWELL said he was born in Blackwood, Glamorganshire in 1845.  I have been unable to trace him prior to the 1871 census.

I wondered if anyone else knew of this family.

Hi yes I think this is the same family.  The place name sounds familiar.

The chap sent me loads of Attewell stuff from the USA so let me know if you need any.  What we are trying to fathom is where they were BEFORE the went over there.

Well I would like to know the connection if possible to Lucy Pearce/Jefferies/Jeffry & John Henry Pearce her husband

In 1920 Census I have a Dane Attwell aged 13 b 1907 Ohio his father is James Pearce, they are both listed with James Mother Lucy Pearce- I don;t know who mother of Dane is?

Lucy & John Henry came over in 1867 on SS England

thks Devonblue
 I will see if I can help find family before 1871 might be worth changing spelling Attewill Attwill or similar
