Any information on the Birks in Heanor/Marlpool and links to the mines in the area would be great. Date abt 1835.

Hi,

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

Could you be a bit more specific on the names of the 'Birks' you are looking for please?

Having had a quick look there is a Joseph/Hannah Birk in the Heanor/Marlpool area, are these of interest to you?

Wm. Berks
Birth Date - 7 Nov 1833
Baptism Date - 19 Jan 1834
Baptism Place:   Heanor, Derby
Father - Joseph Berks
Mother - Hannah

The more information you can gives us the better the response you will receive.

Thank you

JJ

Yes if they were living at 37 Mundys Row, Marlpool, Heanor, Derbyshire in 1841 and Joseph Oxley was living with them then I would be very interested in any information relating to specific mines they would have worked at. Jo

A rather belated reply - only just seen this post.

Wlliam Birks was my g/g/gfather and Joseph Oxley his grandfather who is living with them in 1841.
William's family is still at 37 Mundys Row in 1961.
I know he was a Coal Miner but unfortunately I do not know where he worked.
I have a very detailed family tree so if you need any more details please get in touch - are you related to the Birks or Oxleys?
