would you mind checking to see if you have any entries for the surname Radley?  My family are in the area from 1700's on.  Would be good to see if any mentioned in the Hearth Tax.  Thanks.

Hi Valerie,

ARNOLD parish

1664 Arnold (only a small fragment of the bottom of the return has survived)
Thomas Nalor, 1 hearth, paid 2 shillings

1674 Arnold
Val: Johnson, 2 hearths
Thomas Nalor, 2 hearths, "discharged by Legall Certificate"


STAPLEFORD parish

1664 Stapleford (returns not survived)

1674 Stapleford
Mr. George Jackson, 5 hearths
Mr. Jackson, 1
Thomas Jackson, 1
Widow Jackson, 1, "discharged by Certificate"


KITCHENs

There are something like 57 Kitchens recorded in the county - a few too many to type out. If you have a few places or first names you would like me to check just let me know.


SWANWICKs

There are about 10 Swanwicks, here they are:

1664 Gonalston
Gilbert Swanwick, 1 hearth, 2s
Gilbert Swanwick, 1 hearth, not chargeable

1664 Scaftworth
William Swanack, 1 hearth, 2s
Richard Swanacke, 1 hearth, 2s
Welbeck Swanacke, 1 hearth, 2s

1664 South Leverton cum Cottam
Edward Swanacke, 1 hearth, 2s

1664 Tylne
Peter Swanecke, 5 hearths, 10s

1664 Barnby in le Moor
William Swanacke, 1 hearth, 2s

1674 Gonalston
George Swanick, 1 hearth

1674 Scaftworth
William Swannack, 1 hearth


EAKRING parish

1664/1674 Eakring
No Fleeman/Freeman

Incidentally, I have Fleeman/Freeman ancestors from Eakring. I'm descended from Gervas Fleeman who married Sarah Clarke there in 1706. It looks like the Fleemans probably came from elsewhere since they aren't on the 1664/74 hearth taxe returns for Eakring, but I haven't yet done much research on that line. Anyway, is this the same Fleeman family you are researching?

Hope some of the above matches up with your ancestors. :)

Hi Alexander

This is wonderful, thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to help.

I think the Kitchens were in Bramcote, but have a bit of gap where they might have wandered off!

Our Fleemans are the same family (we were in touch a couple of years ago) I wonder where they were for the hearth tax?

Best wishes

Hi Val,

I know who you are now, good to hear from you again. :D

There aren't any Fleemans at all on the hearth tax, though there is one Mr. Fleeminge in Nottingham and a large number called Freeman. I wonder if Gervas came

There were no Kitchens in Bramcote on the tax returns, and I quickly checked the surrounding area but didn't spot any.

Hi

I am new to Rootschat so I hope I am doing things correctly.  I have been researching various Nottinghamshire families for the past ten years and my particular interest is in the Loverseed(s). 

Unfortunately the name has morphed over the years from Loversedge to Loverseeds with a number of variations along the way.  I believe there are entries in the Notts Hearth Tax book for Loversead Rt and Loversidge (Loverseedge, Loverseige) J and R (there may be others) and I would like to know if the book has details on these families? 

The family name is a very rare one and all living Loverseed family members can trace their ancestry to one person who lived in South Collingham in the 1600's.

Many thanks for sharing your book with other researchers.

Phil

Hi Phil and Burto,

Apologies for not replying sooner, I've not been on Rootschat for ages.

Phil, here is what I could find on the Loverseeds & variants.

1664
SOUTH COLLINGHAM
Robert Loverseige, 2 hearths, 4s

WALKERINGHAM
Robert Loversidge, 1 hearth, 2s


1674
CLAYWORTH
Thomas Loversaige, 1 hearth, "discharged by certificate"

SOUTH COLLINGHAM
Robert Loversead, 2 hearths

BABWORTH
John Loverseege, 1 hearth


I should add a belated "Welcome to Rootschat", Phil. :)

Burto - I'll check for Elliots in a moment, I have a feeling there will be lots of them.

Alexander
