Hello all,

I had a look through some of my papers on the Ackerley family last night. I found a Samuel Ackerley b1811 baptised Harthill, son of John Ackerley and Anne of Bickerton.

There was a Samuel Ackerley in Chester in the 1790s. He had two children baptised in St Oswald, Chester. Elizabeth in 1791 and George in 1797. The records show he was a "mariner" in 1791 and " Mariner and master of the canal packet boat" in 1797.

The Family Search site has many gaps for Cheshire parishes.

I have also Samuel Ackerleys around Nantwich, Wrenbury, Malpas and Cholmondeley.

Jo

Hi all

Thanks for all the help and tips.

Allan, I have checked out the Chester site, and as you say Samuel is not mentioned, which is interesting as he served time in 1826, 1828 and then in 1830. As he was convicted on 19 April, but not received at the prison hulk until 13 May....it is certainly a mystery as to where he may have been held.

Jo, thanks for checking your records, all info greatly appreciated.

Trevor, I am currently working in a school library where we zap the books electronically, but I am old enough to have worked in a beautiful old public library with parquetry floors and timber shelving, where we did stamp our books.....aah the good old days, when people read books and not screens. Having said that I have embraced the electronic age and am very grateful for the obvious advantages it has bought reasearchers like us.

Wendy.  ;D

Hi, Wendy, as you are having difficulty tracing Samuel.  Have you tried the records for the Knutsford courts?
As Jo Harding suggested this would show as Cheshire Assizes, but were based at Knutsford.
Just a thought, it might help
Regards

Hello again,

I take it he married and had children in Australia. I wonder if her returned to the UK, or went elsewhere? The fact you cannot find a death for him suggests he may have lived in another country afterwards.

My advice would be to try and identify a death for him and work backwards. That way, you can get his year of birth and have another search for his baptism.

There were many Ackerleys in Chester itself in those days.

My local library is an old Carnegie library. It and they are always wonderful.

Jo.

Hello all,

Do the records for Chester gaol include those for Northgate Street gaol? I think there were two gaols in Chester then. One at The Castle and the other in Northgate St. The Bridge of Sighs remains in Northgate St, where they condemned men crossed to meet the executioner.

Also, there are a number of entries for Samuel Ackerley on GR. A search for this name, 1800 +/- 10 years, born Cheshire, produces 14 matches. Some of these may be duplicated however.
